Frivolous Friday! Sneaking around with Zucchini

It’s Frivolous Friday!

Thought I would share some of the fun I squeezed in this week (in between all my portrait sessions and retouching work.)

Yep, this happened #1:

Shhh….! Don’t tell on me but Sunday was National Sneak some Zucchini onto your neighbor’s porch day

To celebrate it, you simply wait until the dead of night and quietly creep up to your neighbors’ front doors, leaving plenty of zucchini for them to enjoy…..

National Sneak some Zucchini onto your neighbor’s porch day is a way to rid yourself of the avalanche of long, green squash this time of year.

Zucchini doesn’t freeze well (and you can only bake and consume so much zucchini bread, quiches and cakes!)

And, by this time of year friends and relatives have stopped answering their doors when they see you come up their walk with heavy bags of freshly-picked zucchini.

And since we are talking ZUCCHINI – I have to show you one of mine that went crazy while I was on vacation –

My rogue zucchini grew so much that it smooshed into my little fence and grew around it!

Hubby had to get a knife to cut the squash out of the fence!

And then, since we’d already had to hack it out of the fence, and super large zucchini are tough, I just continued with the hacking until I made a little zucchini creature…

nd the finches are loving the sturdy zucchini leaves – they perch right on them to search for insects!

Yep, this happened #2:

You must know that with all the zucchini growing in my garden we have been eating A LOT of it — from a spring pasta….

To a super yummy stacked ratatouille (this is zucchini, eggplant and tomatoes — all baked in a yummy marinara sauce!)

We also tried baked zucchini fries and zucchini ribbon cheesy fake pasta….

OF course who can resist Zucchini Muffins – especially a recipe that includes cinnamon, nutmeg and chocolate chips!

How does your garden look this time of year?

What can I say:  I’m Feeling Blessed!
