Hey, Good Lookin'...

So, we have been/are eating a lot of zucchini lately, which is definitely NOT a complaint! As you can see from the previous post, our zucchini are ginormous! They are really tasty, which I thought they wouldn’t be that great because of their size. I’ve already grated and frozen quite a bit of them for baked goodies, but more are on their way! Here’s what we’ll be cooking this week:

Monday: Zucchini Fritters with Sour Cream

Tuesday: Pan Roasted Chicken with Lemon-Garlic Green Beans

Wednesday: Zucchini Spaghetti with Meat Sauce, garlic bread and garden salad

Thursday: Zucchini and Tuna Casserole with garden salad

Friday: It’s the Weekend and we are not traveling anywhere!! We’ll probably go out or eat leftovers.

**I am also going to be baking zucchini chocolate chip cookies for the first time. I am excited to try them out! I am using a recipe from Barbara Kingsolver’s book, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle (which is one of my very favorite books).

fun! I love zucchini season -- we've been enjoying breads, cakes, sautees, and main-dishes from zucchini... but I've never tried making cookies! good luck.
