um? what the...!!!


does anyone need some zucchini?

i think i might have a little extra
you should of heard all the "that's what she said" jokes that were flying all over the place.

edited: lovely miss cheryl has posted a yummy chocolate zucchini bread just because she wanted to help me out!
and thanks to all of you that keep telling me of ways to use them.
***my MOST FAVORITE way is to check for unlocked cars and leave some in the back seat. BAHAHA! ! love that!
edited edited again!: you guys rock out loud with all the recipes! will do a post later on next week with links and recipe's! whoot!
my house needs serious attention.
the first frost hit last night,
so i have all my apples to pick.

i have my hands in so many new projects,
some i can show,
a few i cant.

i need to take a little blogging break.
but i promise to come back monday.

wish i could take it off your hands, but i have a feeling we don't live in the same area :) i just freeze it to make zuchinni bread, cookies, and waffles when the cravings hit! good luck...or just let your kids carve the big suckers and make boats!! so fun, used to do it as a kid all the time.

Damery Family said...

Vanessa too bad we aren't closer I would take those of your hands. We didn't have a very good crop this year. Probably due to frost late in the season. I love to make Zuchinni relish, I have a great recipe and it is soo easy and very tasty.

cindi said...

I haven't had that much zucchini in a long time. Unfortunately, like the other comments, I don't think zucchini would ship well or I'd definitely help you out. Have a nice break, get lots done, and then hurry back to us.

Dawn said...

The only time people in small New England towns lock their cars is during zucchini season.. otherwise, when they return from shopping, the back seat is filled with giant zucchini!

Michele said...

Oh my! You are rich with zucchinis among other things!

Emily said...

My favorite way to eat zucchini is in "apple" pie. ;)

rachel griffith said...

Cheryl said...

Wish I could help you out by taking some zucchini off your hands. I have a great recipe for Chocolate Zucchini bread. I may post it on my blog later today if you would like it.
Lucky you to be able to pick some apples. Wow, sounds like you have lots going on and sewing too maybe???
Have a great day and enjoy it all!

Needled Mom said...

It looks and sounds like you will be busy this week. Have a good one.

mom2three said...

oooh... that pic makes me so jealous! my gram always used to make me zucchini bread... I've never even attempted to make her recipe. Maybe this weekend I'll give it a shot after seeing your inspiration.

Have a good week- we'll miss you :)

Mindy said...

Heeheee... love that picture! Those zucchinis are as big as you are, sweetpea! :)

Laurel @ Ducks in a Row said...

Purple Quilter Queen said...

Holy cow! I'll take some of those off your hands! Those look amazing! You sure know how to grow some veggies! Have a good weekend. Jenn

me said...

so, yeah, i'm jealous! i'd love some zucchini! i have an awesome recipe for "can't believe it's zucchini crisp." it tastes just like apple crisp and there is no way of telling that you're eating zucchini and not apples! it's INCREDIBLE and my family loves it....

April Pantall said...

OMG...I had no idea those could get so big!!

jaybird said...

OMG. V what the heck? take a break girl.. cause i know you have a lot going on!!

The Smith Family said...

Dang! I just asked my mom last night if I could have her only zucchini, to try this fried/baked zucchini dish, and she said she had plans for it! I TOTALLY want one of those! I live in Utah... can you mail me one? lol

Laura said...

so strange...I am making zucchini bread today. But should I up my recipe to 78 loaves instead of one, I will call on you!

Julie @ Little One-of-a-Kind Design said...

wow wow wow! pull out ALL the recipes that call for zuch!

Heather said...

Those are some serious Zuchinni's - wow - have fun with them! LOL

Glenn Family Gardens said...

i shredded my extra zucchini and froze it for zucchini bread...will I actually use it or will it get freezer burnt...probably the 2nd option buuuut it made me feel better for the moment!

Victoria said...

Ah there would have been "that's what she said" jokes flying all over my house too!

Ahhhh I am envious of your first frost. Now that the rain has stopped it's 80 something degrees today and doesn't feel a bit like fall!

Grace @ One Craft Girl's Corner said...

Wow! We're still in the 90's over here!

Erin said...

wow! i wish i could take some of your zucchini. my garden has produced only ONE zucchini. pesky rabbits!

Stacy said...

Okay, I'm adding to the recipes. Zucchini Casserole....

Ingredients:
6 cups shredded zucchini
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 boxes stuffing mix (chicken flavor)
1 cup sour cream
1 cup shredded carrots
1 can creme of chicken soup
1 cup melted butter

Cook zucchini and onion in boiling water for five minutes. Drain and set aside. Mix together soup, carrots and sour cream. Fold in zucchini and onion. In a separate bowl mix butter and stuffing mix and place 1/2 along bottom of 13 by 9 inch pan (spray with Pam first). Then put vegetable mix over top. Top with the rest of the stuffing mix. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Enjoy!

this post made me laugh because I was in the kitchen all day shredding zucchini to freeze, making zucchini bread and zucchini muffins and zucchini enchiladas. :) you should've seen my kitchen at the end of the day! :)

zippy said...

I seem to remember someone, maybe it was you, worried that nothing would grow in their garden?? : ) If I lived closer, I too would happily take some zucchini's off your hands. I'm thinking shredding them and freezing them would be a good way to go. Then again, taking a box to the church on Sunday for giving away is a good option...unless everyone there also had as bountinful a crop. Buena suerte!

Deeanna said...

Cool zucchini casserole recipe!! Thanks stranga' for sharing! I've got a few zucchini's to deal with myself.

girlsmama said...

Zucchini might just be worth a little drive...

I mean I would love to drive down and see you and if I happened to get some zucchini I'd be thrilled. :)

Wendy said...

WOW! Those are huge!

the momma said...

Grill it!

grilled home-grown zucchini is heavenly!
Simply crush a few cloves of garlic & cover with some olive oil. Let set a few minutes.
slice zucchini lengthwise into 1/4 - 1/3 inch thick stips and brush both sides with your garlic oil
sprinkle with salt
grill - takes about 15 minutes. They're done when tender & beginning to be sort of translucent.

Once you try this ~ you'll be stealing back your zucchini :-) it's that good!

sure wish I could take some off your hands!!

V and Co. said...

okay awesome suggestions guys! and i have some emailed to me as well as linked up so i think i may just have to do a "have too many zucchini's?" post later on next week! you guys are so great!

Maman Tattoo said...
