Why I Oughta

in my best Three Stooges voice

Just you neglect a zucchini for a few days, and voila! A club!

Somewhere, I have a recipe for zucchini, corn, and cheese casserole…maybe it’s time to dust it off.

  1. Reminds me of the Indiana Jones scene where he and his lady friend are accosted by a couple of NYC punks with a 6″ knife, he pulls out his machete, and the punks run off, probably with yellow stuff running down their legs. Anyway, I’m sure we all have had at least one monster zucchini get away from us-you know, the ones as big as a fat lady’s calves.

  2. My neighbor gets a 5 gallon bucket of zucchini, crookneck squash, cucumbers, and recently a few tomatoes from a relative every week. They have been sharing for the past 3 weeks. The zucchini are all like yours. My wife likes me to slice them about 3/8″ thick and marinade them in teriyaki then grill them. The crookneck squash have mostly been tuned into pies. I am on my second batch of refrigerator pickles and the wife is having a cucumber salad every other day. My tomatoes will start coming in within the next week. I have basil butter, fresh pesto in the fridge, and the strawberries have started coming in. .

  3. One of my ex’s used to make what she called zucchini boats with those. Split’em in half lengthwise, scoop out the seeds, fill’em with a cooked rice and hamburger mixture, including any spices you may prefer, cover the tops with AL foil bake at 350 for 45-60 minutes until the zucchini is tender.
