It has been my worst garden year EVER. I am so unimpressed with myself that I can't even bear to blog about it. Then this guy named "Murphy" decided to walk into my garden with his goofy laws. You see, my neighbor gave me two small zucchini plants last spring. I planted them just because I can't bear to see a plant die, but my hubby doesn't like zucchini for anything other than bread. Just for fun, take a guess at what is ready for harvest. If you said zucchini you'd be 100% correct. It's almost like someone is playing a cruel joke on me. Almost everything else in my garden stinks this year except for the one thing that my hubby hates. Darn Murphy and his laws! I am so not amused.

I have an awesome recipe for zucchini fritters. My husband hates zucchini too, but he loves these. They go great alongside bbq'd steak or chicken, and then I usually put out a green salad and some fruit. If you want me to give you the recipe I'd be happy too. :)

Thanks Angie! I'll take any zucchini recipe that I can get my hands on right now because I have been blessed with a bounty of unwanted (by my dh anyway) squash!

Zucchini season is over here, but I recently heard about zucchini pickles, so I'm going to try them next year.

Since I don't have a real recipe yet, I'd just google if you're interested.

Zucchini fritters

1/3 cup biscuit mix
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp. black pepper
2 eggs, slightly beaten
2 cups shredded zucchini, unpeeled
butter or margarine

Stir together biscuit mix, parmesan cheese and pepper. Stir in beaten eggs just until dry ingredients are moistened. Fold in zucchini.

Melt butter in a skillet, spoon zucchini mixture in like you are making pancakes. Cook until browned on both sides. You can serve these with a little bbq sauce, but my favorite condiment with them is ranch dressing.

Thanks Angie!! These sound fantasic! I just picked my first super huge zucchini yesterday and now I know it's fate......
