On with my Favs!!! My friend Joni likes to do a theme to her friday favs.. so I am gonna take that idea and BORROW it this week!! My friday favs are going to be
ODE TO ZUCCHINI!!
I have it coming out of my ears here! Ok not my ears ... but the garden!!
The zucchini plant grew so big.. it blocked my onions and carrots.. BUT we did get the zucc., lettuce, and STRAWBERRIES>. (those buggers take over EVERYTHING too! LOL!) anyway... here are the 2 I picked last week! (that long one is LONGER then Justin was when he was born! LOL!!) More are growing!!
Here are some of the goodies I made up using ALMOST ONE of them! :)
Zucchini parm... this is just something I made up.. trying to eat REALLY WELL.. and get into those shorts that are all dusty! :)
I just sprayed the zucc. slices with cooking spray.. and coated them with panko bread crumbs..broiled them.. topped with homemade sauce and a bit of fresh parm. cheese.. YUM!
Made up THIS recipe choc. chip zucchini bread/muffins...it was so good! I did add some honey to it!
Oh and I also made up THIS salad.. YUM-O.. it is soo good I made it all last summer.. and am again this summer! it is so easy.. you can add ANYTHING really you want to it.. I am going to add some shrimp for dinner one night.. I do make the dressing a bit different.. I use THIS (sorry no link!) from Trader Joes.. it is Sesame Soy Ginger Vinaigrette.. I add a TINY bit of olive oil, tiny bit of chili oil, pepper, lime and garlic... YUMMY!
and finally I made this up yesterday.. Zucchini Hummus it is from Tosca Renos Eat Clean Cookbook! as always I had to change it! I didnt have the tahini so I used some lowfat greek yogurt with a drizzle of sesame oil mixed in it! , and I had no parsley.. I didnt make the full recipe.. since it is just probably me gonna eat it! It was soooo GOOD.. gonna use some on my turkey sandwich! :) I know you ALL wanted to know that! :)
THANKS for stopping by today and reading my ODE TO ZUCCHINI friday favs... :) if you have ANY recipes with Zucchini PLEASE SHARE!! I have MORE coming in! LOL!!
Have a GREAT weekend.. we hope to go out on the boat tomorrow!!
