Well, seriously, an entire army of you begged for the Zucchini Yum recipe. Well, okay, maybe 4 or 5. I’d already written it out on Facebook, so it’s no work to replicate it here. And really, if you don’t have them, it might not make sense, but at this time of year, Zucchini truly does qualify as a CRISIS.
(Later today I’ll answer some of the comments about dogs fighting in the home–some heartbreaking, all fascinating–, but for now, in the knick of time):
ZUCCHINI YUM RECIPE NUMBER ONE:
6 med Zucchini peeled and chopped or shredded, 4 TB butter, 2 med tomatoes diced and seeded, 2 c shredded cheese, 2 c soft bread crumbs, 2 eggs, 1 med onion diced, 1 tsp basil dry or a buncho chopped fresh basil (best!), 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp salt & pepper each.
Saute Zucchini in 2 TB butter, drain, add onion and soften. Combine all together, bake uncovered at 350 for 25 to 30 min til bubbly and brown. Very, very yummy (Especially if you use good cheese. I like 1/2 Parm and 1/2 good chedda). Also freezes well for a month or two.
ZUCCHINI YUM RECIPE NUMBER TWO:
Cut up. Cook in boiling water for 10 minutes. Feed to dogs.
Now, about those tomatoes…..
