Oh how I love zucchini!  

I'm always looking for new ways to use it. 

How do you prepare it?  

Head over to my other blog Walking on Sunshine Recipes
 to see my FAVORITE way to eat it 
and leave me a comment with how you LOVE it!  

Enjoy your weekend!

  1. Hi Lois,
    I love to make my zucchini this way: I fry 1 large onion, add 6 or 8 thinly sliced small zucchini, and 5 large ripe tomatoes cut up. If you have fresh basil add 8-10 large leaves cut up, if not use dried sweet basil to taste. Add salt and pepper to taste. In the winter when the tomatoes are not very good I use a large can of whole tomatoes with the juice. This is yummy over pasta! Hugs

  3. Hi Lois,

    I don't really fix zucchini much, so I'm no help, but I just had to ask....did you find that money tree? hehe! Send some this way so I can get one started in our backyard if you did! :)

    Have a great weekend!

  4. Ah, yes...it's zucchini time! I'll head on over to the recipes ASAP.

    Another good way to get rid of more than what you can use is to put some in a basket...put them on your neighbors porch and quietly sneak away before they know it's you....AGAIN! LOL

  6. In moist bread with 2 cups of zucchini per 2 loaves, keep the water in it after grating, and lots of cinnamon. :)
    Loretta's recipe sounds delicious, too.

  8. I love it but cook that much of it.
    I have diced it up for zucchini bread. That's different though.
    How are things going for you?
    All the plumbing fixed?
    Take care!

  9. Hi Sunshine,
    Finally getting over for a visit!
    I adore zucchini bread! But I'm not much of a cook nor baker since my children left home. (sigh)

    What kind of basket would YOU be?

    Blessings and ((HUGS))

  11. Morning Sunshine,
    So good to hear from you hon!!
    I am really not that crazy about Zucchini typically just as a veggie,
    but I do love zucchini bread and pancakes. Call me Crazy!! lol

    I know it must be so hard for Phil to be away anyway but, it's probably makes it harder when there are so many fun Fall activities and holidays that you typically enjoy together as a family.

    You are sweet not to go without him, I don't think I would either,
    cause it wouldn't be the same anyway.

    Too bad you couldn't send him some pumpkin pie, oh you know what, lil Debbie makes these lil pumpkin cakes, and they are delicious with coffee. We used to eat them all the time, but they
    do have hydrogenated oils so we never get them now, but if he has no heart issues a few wouldn't hurt him.

    Nice your Mom got you a pumpkin, that was sweet. I didn't get any
    real ones this year. Last year I got some real small ones from walmart for 50 cents a piece, so
    if I see some like that again I might get a few. They were so cute.

    I have to say we did really enjoy the pumpkin pancakes....I usually make pumpkin french toast and that is delightful as well, but this had a whole can of pumpkin in it,
    the other about a 3rd of a can if that much. Great way to get all that Beta Carotene!! lol

    Well Sweet Girl, hope you are doing well hon, still praying for you!
    Love and blessings, Nellie

    Yes, I got the tray from Walmart a couple of wks. ago. I had the chargers from last year.

    Hope you are doing well.
