They Appear Overnight

     It happens overnight!  They burst out of the loveliest orange blossoms into giants.  You can't miss a day picking them or there it is another "giant".  
     
     The chickens enjoy them in the overgrown state, but I prefer the smaller version of zucchini.  We have been eating sauteed zucchini with a little olive oil and garlic - yum!  Sometimes we grate them to make zucchini bread.  Last weekend I made zucchini muffins with some walnuts and cinnamon - very moist!  Checking on line, you can make just about anything with zucchini.

    Tomorrow night (Sept. 10th) at our Garden to Table Culinary Class here we are going to make Zucchini Spirals to serve along with Perfect Chicken Piccata, Roasted Tomato-Basil Soup, Spicy Italian Salad, and Melon Sorbet.  We'll be using a nifty tool called a "Veggetti".  Here's what the zucchini spirals look like in the raw state.  How fun!

     Zucchini is loaded with good nutrition as well as being versatile.  It is low in calories, high in fiber, vitamins & minerals.  Why, zucchini was only common in this country about 30 years ago, yet Central and South America had been eating zucchini for several thousands of years. 

     Call pronto if you're interested in joining our Garden to Table Culinary Class 440 228-8458.  If you think zucchini was an exciting topic wait till we get to the herbs and tomatoes!!
