So, I am embarking on 20 days of zucchini. Each day, for twenty days, I am going to make something different using zucchini. I have combed the web and found some interesting recipes. I am already excited about this. I hope my family gets excited too.
|My zucchini Pinterest board.|
To help me keep track of my potential recipes I am using Pinterest. I created a board called What to Do With That Glut of Zucchini where I can pin recipes that look like they have potential. Click on the link to check out the board and the recipes on it
** Since you need an invite to join (but not view) Pinterest, let me know if you want one. Just leave a comment with your email.
I have more than 20 recipes on the board. I figure this gives me choices depending on my mood and what is available. I will try the ones that have the most comments and repins. I'll also report back to give you the highlights and lowlights.
I actually started the challenge three days ago. So far, so good.
Day 1-Zuchini Tots! The zucchini tots were an attempt to fool my daughter into eating a vegetable. As part of the ruse they are called "super cheesy yum-yums" in her presence. No mention is made of the Z-word. The good news is it works. They taste like tater tots and she gobbled them down. The downside is they stuck like crazy to a well-greased non-stick pan (all the cheese). After the 20 day challenge is over these have a place in the rotation.
Day 2-Pink Zucchini Smoothie. See yesterday's post for a report on these.
Day 3- Zuchini Feta Pancakes. These were already in our zucchini rotation. They can be a little time consuming but I love them. The family is lukewarm about them, except for my daughter. Someone mentioned the Z word in her presence and she has refused to try them.
Tonight I am thinking about the zucchini and red onion flatbread. I'll report back in a few days.
