Zucchini Season

What kitchen doesn't have a stack of zucchini on the cupboard waiting to be grilled, baked, shredded, sliced, or cubed.  We have a bunch of the green goddesses lounging on ours, and the plan is to cube and pack them in zip-lock baggies, and freeze for winter soups.

My mother's way of eating zucchini was to cut them into stix, like carrots, and dip them in Hidden Valley Ranch dressing.  Simple, delicious, nutritional.  An ideal health-happy appetizer.

How do you know when you have too much Zucchini?

  • You hide them in your neighbors mailboxes.
  • You find yourself looking for zucchini breakfast recipes.
  • You start having nightmares of a Wild Zucchini chasing you.
  • Your kids are using them for footballs.
