Glasford Haus of Zucchini
Posted by Jeanne on July 25, 2013
I have bitched mightily about the garden before. And lo, here we are again.
Note: I love that we have freshly grown produce. I love that Curt has a hobby he enjoys.
I freaking hate the famine-or-feast of it all. Two weeks ago we had no zucchini. I think I BOUGHT zucchini last month.
This is what I picked last Thursday:
I froze 18 cups of shredded zucchini. EIGHTEEN. CUPS. THAT IS A LOT OF FREAKING ZUCCHINI BREAD. The plant is still going strong – I can already see another 8 zucchini coming up. Oh, and we got three as a “bonus” from our CSA because they have so many zucchini too.
DOWN WITH ZUCCHINI.
So this is what we ate this week:
Sunday: it was my birthday so we had grilled salmon (which Curt nicely cooked for me in a hailstorm) and grilled portobello mushrooms and some grilled zucchini.
Monday: stuffed zucchini (I made one for us and one for a friend who just had a new baby).
Tuesday: cochinita pibil taco bowls, inspired by this recipe. NO ZUCCHINI YAY!
Wednesday: tofu, green bean and zucchini Thai curry + rice.
Thursday: Baked Louisiana red beans & rice.
Friday: pizza, probably one with zucchini.
This weekend, will be making some zucchini bread. Whee!
