Give Us Your Zucchini! We Actually Want It!

Don’t turn down those zucchini and summer squashes you’re offered anymore!  Here are six zucchini ideas to use those logs all up.  And I haven’t even touched on salads yet!  Psssst.  Pick them small, please.

Pile chicken salad on top of fresh-cut zucchini slice into coins.


Dip coin-sized slices into your favorite dip.  Much crisper than cucumber!


Zucchini bread never fails.  The recipe I use is from “Against All Grain”:  Almond Flour Zucchini Bread.


Grilled zucchini.  Mix  your favorite olive oil and your favorite vinegar in a 1:1 ratio.  Add a couple pinches of salt and a teaspoonful of thyme.  Toss diagonal sliced zucchini and the marinade together in a plastic bag.  Allow to sit as long as possible, overnight is best.


Zucchini pizza boats.  I show some squash a neighbor gave me, but it works the same!

And I still have lots more zucchini!  So I’ll be coming up with more ideas!  Do you have any ideas to share?

        We have aubergine you have eggplant. We have coriander you have cilantro! Non food you say pants we say trousers (pants to us mean underwear)! My sister has lived in Philly for 4 years now and sometimes she says people still look at her blankly when she forgets and uses a British English word! The latest being jumper, which I think you call pull over?

        Fascinating! I use jumper for an item of clothing that spans tops and bottoms in one piece. I use pull over for a sweater that looks nice over an undershirt. What’s the answer? This is fun.

        who knew there were so many differences between American and English! No wonder my sister gets blank looks from her students when she talks sometimes! a jumper to you is a romper suit or jumpsuit to us. a biscuit to you is a southern bread thing at breakfast isn’t it? where as a biscuit to us is a cookie to you. confusing!
