Never Too Much~ a zucchini challenge
I've been known to do it with eggs a time or two, so who says I can't challenge myself to use up the insane amounts of summer squash that inundate us these days? So I will. UNLIKE eggs, however, I am going to spread this challenge over a week and not a day, for obvious reasons. Mainly, my family will hate me.
Here is how it will go. I will fix at least one zucchini dish for an entire week and it won't include this recipe, or this recipe, this one or this one. Not that they aren't GREAT recipes (love them!) but I am on the search for a few new ones to put in my summer artillery. And because I love ya (and suspect that many of you are being equally swarmed these days), I'll share some pictures here and, likely, a few recipes over here.
And yes, I have been canning up the very best ever relish too.
(If you all have awesome-y type uses for zucchini--- fire away!) Do you not love that I followed the metaphor of artillery for that last statement? Ahhhh- so corny am I.
In other news~ we had a pretty great weekend away which involved a church conference, a hotel room stay (and donuts!!) this past weekend. We arrived home to find a nice and clean house, our first ripe tomatoes and enough flowers to make luscious and large bouquets for the house, a large frog and an orange newt, a yard that needs mowing and corn nearly ready for the table. I am going to see if I can scrounge up enough for supper tonight. I have exactly one day to get laundry caught up because for the next two, Mr. Weathermen say it is going to rain. Then, it will be time to harvest onions and potatoes.
I am so excited.
