Zucchini Time

What do you do with an abundance of Zucchini this time of the year?

When my husband came home from his recent bike tour, he presented a bag of Zucchini to me, a gift from my sweet mother-in-law's garden. This is such a wonderful vegetable! There are so many uses for it in cooking and baking.

So if you have lots of Zucchini to use up, check out this website over at Menus for Moms where you can read this helpful article: "Zucchini Overload? 11 Ideas and Recipes To Get You Through Zucchini Time."

As for the Zucchini I received, here are the plans I have to use up this vegetable:

Strategically placed it into two weeks of meal planning:
~A side dish of sauteed zucchini w/butter, grated Parmesan cheese, and Italian Seasonings.
~Adding to a Quiche.
~Veggie Casserole
~Zucchini Tomato Casserole
~Grate into 1/2 cup increments and place in freezer bags to be stored. Then defrost for future meals to be used in: spaghetti, meatloaf, muffins, and zucchini bread.

Please feel free to share any ways you use up Zucchini... :)
