...I've got more photos of things made from zucchinis! So for a while after those first exciting zukes, every time I went out to the garden, my zucchini plants had lots and lots of stems. With the squash blossoms conspicuously missing. I think some little four legged creatures were having a very gourmet meal. My neighbor recommended spraying the plant with a mixture of cayenne pepper and water, and let me tell you, it's worked wonders. I'm getting about one zuke a day (which is a lot when there's just the two of us and we don't eat very much). Seriously, you'd swear that's all I'm growing. I promise to post about something else from the garden next time!
So what else would I do but turn on the oven? (Which is especially fun given the heat)
Zucchini chocolate chip cookies. Recipe courtesy of Camille Kingsolver in Animal, Vegetable, Miracle. I substituted the egg with 2 tablespoons of ground flax plus 3 tablespoons of water.
Zucchini muffins- adapted from my mom's zucchini bread recipe (yes, she found it!). Apparently, I'm the only person at my job who can bake something vegan, so I was enlisted for a vegan coworker's last day on the job.
Oh yeah, and what else would I have for dinner? Grilled golden zuke! I don't have a grill, so I just did them in the broiler (a little olive oil, salt, pepper, fresh thyme, and red pepper flakes- yum!).
Back tomorrow with a preview of what I'll be bringing to the Powderhorn Art Fair coming up this weekend, stay tuned!
