Tuesday's Tips - Zucchini, Zucchini, Zucchini

Tip #1 - You only need 1 zucchini seed, so maybe just share a pack of seeds with someone because there is usually 12 in a pouch and let me tell you from experience. - THATS TOO MANY.
I am kinda the joke of the neighborhood/family, I must have been thinking I would thin them out or ???? who knows really.  but  I have used zucchini in every way possible.  and I don't think I could ever get sick of it, but... my kids can!
Zucchini Sticks, recipe I used is found here.
 Zucchini pineapple -  All it requires is pineapple juice and sugar.  directions found here. This is a substitute for real pineapple, there is a great zuc. pinneapple bread recipe and I love it in smoothies.
 Zucchini Parmigiana - THIS WAS OUR FAVORITE. go here for the recipe
 Zucchini Lasagna, - just substitute the noodles in your favorite lasagna recipe with long slices of Zucchini, we loved this too.

These are the ingredients I use to make smoothies,
1 1/2 c. milk, 1 scoop vanilla protein powder 1/ 4 c z.pinneapple. and 1 cup frozen berries.  so yummy, better than Jamba~ and about 1/10th cost, if you allready have frozen berries. 
Zucchini bread, muffins, and Brownies.  My friend made Zucchini Fudge cake, I liked those the best. just google it.  While your at it, Zucchini PIZZA, and Ratatouille, those were our favorites last year.

~Oh my, I almost forgot relish,  I made some great Zucchini mustard relish, I canned about a dozen pints,  it is great on burgers or dogs etc.  Here is a recipe for that.

Don'tbe afraid to try some of these, they are seriously good, and.... what do you have to loose, I mean besides Zucchini .... hahah.

Ohmygoodness I desperately want some zucchini. These look so good! Too bad ours are just flowers and not actually vegetables.
