Hey for all of you who hate grocery shopping you can call me anytime, lol. I love "food" shopping. Heck if it has anything to do with food, I like it.

Ok I have been trying to come up with fresh ideas. My garden is producing a lot of zucchini again. My break is over. Looks like zucchini bread, muffins, breaded and baked, grilled zucchini and whatever else I can come up with. By all means please share your best zucchini recipes, lol.

I have also been craving Baked Clams. I bought all of the ingredients but I am using canned clams. I am going to try making clamballs. I think they should be good. I'll tell you about them after tomorrow.

Now I have to get ready to make my oven fried Italian breaded squash.

I make zucchini parmesan. There's two ways to do it, easy and not so easy:

Easy: Add sliced zucc to a pan of Italian stewed tomatoes. When the zucc is done to your liking, stir in fresh grated parmesan. To serve, top with shredded mozz and sprinkle more parmesan. You can run it under the broiler at this point if you wish, for an extra touch of presentation.

Not so easy: make eggplant parmesan, but instead of using eggplant, substitute sliced zucchini.

Or keep it simple---pick the squash when it is still fairly small and tender and just slice it up and eat with dinner as a side with ranch dip. My kids never knew veggies were actually cooked for years becuase they so preferred them raw and dipped to cooked. We always called it a savage salad!! Best part is it's better for you.

Good idea cyn. Unfortunately I never seem to catch them small enough. Those crazy squash and zucchini seem to grow over night. I have 2 big zucchini on my counter right now and tomorrow I will have 2 more.

The really big ones? Cut them in half and core and stuff 'em with a ground beef or savory veggie stuffing. Put back together and bake until done. Yum!

I tried that once with rice, beans, salsa, and cheese. It was ok but not great. I need to work on the filling some more.

I know that, but I noticed in a C-D poll once of people's favourite foods that French food came pretty close to the bottom which surprised me so I was wondering whether how French food was viewed generally speaking in the US. My friend's father is extremely well travelled ( business and pleasure) which makes it all the more odd to me.
