Zucchini's are plentiful this time O' year. (Funny thing happened to me in my gardening adventure this year. I thought I bought, planted and nurtured a zucchini plant for my garden...but instead I got a yellow summer squash. Equally as yummy, but not what I thought or intended. Ha!)
My Dad saved the day. Dad has a garden and he planted zucchini. So, have no fear Dad has supplied me with more than I know what to do with zucchini's.
