Zucchini, Zucchini, Zucchini!
One of my friends from work was brought a million giant zucchinis. And when I say giant, I mean giant. They're literally half the size of my toddler.
So she brought them to me, and I was left to find a million things to do with them. The obvious choice was spiced zucchini bread, which tastes amazingly like pumpkin bread to me. I had never made it before but it has now become something I'll be adding to my favorite fall recipes.
It went over so well at our house, I shredded 10 cups of the zucchini (it takes about 2 cups per recipe) and stored it in our freezer so we're stocked for the winter!
We made olive oil, zucchini, tomato, basil, and jack cheese rounds:
We made tomato sauce, turkey pepperoni and mozzarella mini-pizzas:
We deep fried zucchini chips:
We breaded and baked some Parmesan zucchini:
And lastly, we made some tomato, cream cheese, zucchini roll ups!
And there are still leftovers!
So if anyone has any more suggestions, I'm all ears!
