Zucchini Takes Over

Its official zucchini has taken over my fridge. I have no room for produce and started losing my shelves this morning. I have gotten to the point where everything I cook has zucchini in it or as a side dish. I guess its time to freeze some for this winter. Some ideas for its uses would be welcome. I already bake and fry it instead of potatoes. I add it to my pancakes and waffles with a teaspoon of cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg. I add it to spaghetti sauce and meatballs. I shred it and put it in hamburgers and meatloaf. I even shredded it and used it with flour for the breading on fried chicken. We also never run out of zucchini bread. Soon I will be doing the same thing with tomatoes. Summer is so great!

Hello its me!

I’m here to get this party started. I guess I want to try this blog thing for several reasons. As a mom of 5 I tend to get overwhelmed and need an outlet more often than not. I am a family cook, defiantly not gourmet. I garden to help feed my large family. I am a trained weather spotter, to keep my family safe. I am a huge reader, to save my sanity. Above all I’m a pretty simple country girl married to a pretty simple country boy. Together we are raising our pretty simple country kids.
