reunited.

I took this shot on the way home from the Children's Museum last week. We had a great playdate that was worth the drive north. Girlie and Teddy seemed pretty happy to be back in each other's loving arms.

On a totally unrelated note, what do you do with five frillion tons of zucchini? I can't bake another loaf of bread, internet. I just can't. Help a mother out. What should I do?

Oh Oh!! Pick me! I know the answer to this one. I like to stir fry zucchini in a little olive oil and sprinkle with sunflower seeds. It is so yummy. My mom used to make that growing up. The key is not to cook it too long so it doesn't get mushy-unless you prefer it mushy!

And, I do love the Children's museum! So fun.

Guess who?

I agree with Leslie that stir fried zucchini is delish. Also, just grilling it, with a little olive oil and pepper on it, yummmm. You can also cut it up and put it in pasta salad if you like it raw.

MOM-I am totally judging you for liking that zucchini relish. I am not a fan. It could be due to the nasty, nasty neon green batch you made during my childhood. Not good.

Stephanie came up with my suggestion first. We grilled some on the BBQ last night and it was tasty. If all else fails, give it away (or maybe slice/freeze some for later?). I don't know if Mom & Dad had a garden this year, but if they didn't, I'm sure they would love to take some off your hands, as well as see one of their favorite kid's favorite friends. :)

Kari girl, grate it, put it in ziploc freezer bags in the amount it calls for in your bread recipe, then you can have zucchini bread all winter. If all else fails, I'm sure some of your neighbors have cows or chickens you could feed it to. Do you need/want green beans or cucumbers??? I have those coming out of my ears... : )

Zucchini Brownies!!! Or I use a zuchinni brownie recipe, make a few changes and turn them into amazing chocolate chocolate chip muffins for brunch, snack or dessert. They really are amazing.

Recipes are all over the web or I can e-mail you the one I use.

Brenda Sue-
YES please to green beans or cukes :)
And that freezer idea is brilliant...
Beth-
I'll have to check online for a brownie recipe, if I can't fine one, I'll get your email from Sarah.

shredded and squeezed juice-less, add an egg and flour (seasoning optional) and you have pizza crust. cook the crust first before adding toppings because it is a very soft crust otherwise. enjoy!

I loved them grilled. Also slice them in have and put cheese strips. Either havarti or goat cheese and put them in the oven until tender. Yummy!

I don't know about the zucchini... but I know we had a good time at the kid's museum too. We should do it again sometime.
