There's not one single photo of a harvest from the past week. Just how many photographs of zucchini does one need? How many do you want to look at? So, in lieu of photos of zucchini, how about a photo of something that I prepared last week.
When I served it to my husband I made him try to guess what the main ingredient was.
No. Taste it and tell me.
Oh wow, this is good, but I don't know.
It's gazpacho, zucchini gazpacho!
Fooled you, it's a photograph of zucchini after all...
How many of you lay awake at 1:00 AM and think about how to use up a glut of zucchini? I found myself doing that one night last week. Zucchini, zucchini, zucchini, I've got to come up with a new way to eat zucchini. My husband thinks I dreamed up a winner, he's been telling everybody and anybody about my zucchini gazpacho. You can find the recipe on my Kitchen Notebook blog.
Other than trying to consume large amounts of zucchini, we also tried to get through lettuce and cabbage and broccoli from the previous weeks. Thank goodness there's not a lot else coming out of the summer garden yet.
