I turned around and a small, perhaps four inch zucchini on Monday became a three-and-a-half pound+ monster on Friday! What doesn't come across in this picture is that this Zucch is as long as my forearm and bigger than my bicep.
That, plus the zucchini I've gotten from friends, farmers, and my CSA share... we were swimming in zucchini. So we cooked and baked and, all told, used up seven pounds of zucchini in things like:
Chocolate chip cake (with zucchini and some whole wheat)
Zucchini Wheat bread
Beef and Zucchini stir-fry (doubled the recipe and the only pot of sufficient size was the french oven... does that make this a fusion dish?!)
And of course, add to scrambled eggs.
Amazing the different things you can do with this squash...
