Third time is the charm?


I’m taking another stab at this post. I’ve made two rather unsuccessful attempts at writing about this zucchini, that I’m wondering if it’s meant to be. But I’m tenacious that way, I don’t quit till I win, it’s a thing with me. That’s why it’s 2 am Texas time, and I’m awake and writing about Zucchini? So sad, I have to laugh at myself.

I’ve got all this Zucchini, see, and I’ve been deadly dry in writing, at work, and overall. But since I’m so bull headed, I figured I would write my way through the dry spell, take my third stab at this post on Zucchini, and some how come out on the other side content? This is funny. If you could see me, in my jammies, curly hair all askew, glasses smudged, with my determined little face up against the computer trying not to wake the household while I pound away on this keyboard…..the tears are flowing down my face I’m laughing so hard at my ridiculous state. That is making it a little harder to see through the smudged spectacles, but I don’t care, I’m having fun at my own silly expense!

So, enough about me, back to the squash, dryness, and looking for creativity. I decided that I needed to grate the squash, but I was too dry and dull to get out my food processor and zip through it in minutes. I have to grate it by hand. I only got my knuckles twice, which was a miracle in itself. Being so dull minded, I found the act of grating the squash oddly comforting. The juice from this veggie was really sticky, and formed a glue like bond on my fingers that I literally had to scrub off with a pumice stone. When it was all said and done, I was not so dull and dry. I found two different recipes for Zucchini bread that turned out really tasty. I ended up with 4 quarts of grated zucchini with 3 of the largest of my bumper crop, and I made 2 loaves of zucchini bread, 12 muffins, and 6 mini loaves.

Not too horrible for being so deadly dull and dry when this all started. This post might even turn out!

The finished product!  Yum!
