Thanks to my CSA, I have an overabundance of yellow squash and zucchini. Oh, and being away for two weeks didn't help either. Since hubby doesn't cook, the yellow squash I left him were untouched when the kids and my sister returned a week and a half later. My sister made zucchini pickles and squash soup during her first couple of days.
When I came home and saw both drawers of my crisper stuffed with the squash, I was at a loss. They were like tribbles, seemingly multiplying out of thin air. So I did what everyone in the technology age would do. I polled my Facebook friends for tips. Especially since all I could think of was zucchini bread.
It was my first time making and eating zucchini bread, er muffins. I was very underwhelmed. That recipe used up only one large zucchini. Then I made a wonton veggie soup. One more zucchini down. Next I roasted the ones above with some grape tomatoes. My plan for them is turn them into some sort of dip, like baba ghanoush. I guess it's time to finally unpack the food processor so I can blend them together.
My sister was meeting friends for dinner so I convinced her to gift her friends with my large, mutant-like squash AND some zucchini muffins. Whew!
Now what do I do with the rest of them? I'm afraid to look in my CSA bag today. Keep your fingers crossed I don't get anymore. Looking back, all that kale from last summer didn't seem so bad compared to my tribble-like squash.
