Oh no! Not again! (zucchini)



The first time it happens, it can be attributed to naivete and excused. But the second time it happens the only conclusion can be 'you are a fool.' And so it is; this fool once again ended up with a gigantic zucchini (this time weighing in at a whopping 4.5+ lbs!).


Sleeves were rolled up, brows were furrowed, and squash was shredded; we had a long day of cooking ahead of us.



You may remember the whole wheat chocolate cake from last time... it was so stunning it made a delicious comeback.



French-inspired vegetable tarts were constructed (using up an eggplant from our CSA haul)



A multitude of tomatoes were cooked down with onions and zucchini and made into breakfast tortilla scrambles




and a lovely whole-wheat bread (that kind of looks like a pushing in face!) was baked.



And in the realm of 'normal' zucchini bread, this lovely tea cake was the natural result.
