From The Patch..........Zucchinis.

As i've mentioned previously, we've got zucchinis coming out of our ears!
But i don't mind - i'd rather have an abundance of zucchinis than cucumbers, there's so much more you can do with the former. I've made plenty of zucchini slice and chocolate zucchini cake, so i thought i'd try something different this year and headed over to my favourite recipe searching place....... you never fail me.

First i made Zucchini and Mustard pickles. Easy peasey these were, much simpler than what i had imagined and surprisingly my kids love them! I did however, halve the recipe and ended up with two jars.
I also made a delicious Zucchini Bread, that was so sweet and moist and even better topped with a cream cheese frosting. Will definitely be making this one again.
I have kept the remaining humongous zucchini until last, he's still sitting in my fridge and i plan on making a simple Zucchini soup with him - i'm just waiting for this warm weather we are having to cool down. 
So that's it with the zucchinis so far...............i'm not enjoying typing that word so many times! (Try it. Not easy hey?)
 So tell me, what's your favourite thing to make with courgettes? (hmmm, no not much easier).

  1. Yum! Zucchini and Mustard Pickles. That sounds delicious. We grew zucchinis once but they took over our little vegie space :) Zucchini slice would have to be my favourite zucchini recipe, with chunks of fetta thrown in for good measure. Happy days to you Malea x
