Z is for Zucchini
Z is indeed for Zucchini. I can't believe today is the last day! I made it! I feel like I need to throw confetti and dance around in a circle and clap my hands! Yay! Yay! Yay! I've also realized that I have some really great recipes and have only shared a few! The other thing I've realized is a large majority of my really awesome recipes have been given to me by wonderful friends and family members.
On to Z . . . .Zucchini! The picture below does not look very appetizing but the recipe is really yummy. Skinny Taste is another great resource for those on WW. While we were safe at home, I found this recipe and decided to make it and I've made it several times since then. The first time I made it my Shipt shopper couldn't find the chicken sausage recommended so she substituted Apple/Chicken/Gouda sausage. I ended up having to change the way I prepared the sausage because all of the cheese was oozing out but I finally made it work and it was delicious. I've made it several times and I think I've used a different chicken sausage every time and they have all worked.
Zucchini is actually fairly versatile. Sometimes I peel part of the zucchini - leaving a think green stripe every so often for color. I spread it on a cookie sheet (covered with non-stick Reynolds Aluminum Foil) and spray the zucchini with olive oil and sprinkle Cavender's seasoning over all and bake at 350 for 30 minutes. On the night below, I finished out the cookie sheet with rounds of yellow squash.
I don't have any pictures of the third way I cook zucchini. Slice the zucchini like above (on cookie sheet) and cook in a skillet along with some slices of onion and if you like you can add mushrooms. After zucchini begins to brown a little, add a can of tomatoes and zucchini from the grocery store. Sometime I can find it and sometimes I can't. I also add another can of diced tomatoes that are seasoned with garlic and something (the Italian ones). This recipe needs to cook quite a while -- it needs to "cook down." It is a good side dish in the winter.
Last but not least would be zucchini bread! I haven't made it in a long time -- not at all during the pandemic -- but zucchini bread is a great way to use up extra zucchini. It also freezes well.
What food or recipe do you eat/make that begins with the letter Z?
Thanks so much for visiting my blog over the last month!! I've had a great time! I'm going to start a new series soon -- All Around the House. It will be a once a month link up on Thursdays where we share different rooms in our houses and our thoughts about those rooms - why we chose certain furniture and decorations, etc. and if it is a success, who knows where we will go?? Hope you will check back and link up with us!
