we have lots of family who give us huge amounts of home grown veggies.
which is awesome! but it also means unplanned kitchen duty, as I never know when they're going to stop by with a bag full of tomatoes, or 25 ears of corn. I put my big girl apron on tonight and froze 4 bags of corn (blanched and cut off the cob), shredded 10 cups of zucchini, and made quick pickles. The tomatoes will have to wait until tomorrow. :)
Then I made 4 loaves of zucchini bread. I really like this recipe - I even made some with m&ms in them, which the kids gobbled up for dessert! heehee, I feel so sneaky when they eat veggies that way. I've tried a few recipes for zucchini but the kids always turn up their noses. At least this way they eat it without a fight. I tried a recipe for zucchini cookies tonight too - they taste ok but the texture is weird, and they never would brown in the oven. I'll see if the kids like them tomorrow.
What about you? Do you have a garden, or have a neighbor who is generous with their fresh grown goodies?
by the way - I'd rather be sewing :)
