Yes, I got lots of cards to share…lots of pages to show off but in true Sarah fashion, (squirrel!), I'm going to divert and share a fabulous recipe with you instead.  On occasion, my poor class attendees (as was the case on Thursday night and again this morning), are entertained, horrified or mortified by the behavior of one or more of my children.  This week has dealt with the attitude and trials of a certain teenager…

When this occurs, I try to regain a little bit of respect and decorum with…. a simple bribe.  Its usually with the overabundance of produce from the garden.  Since much of the produce is just starting to come, I needed to use what I have lots of…zucchini.  Now, I'm not sure if they thought the zucchini was an adequate compensation for witnessing the horrors of teenage sass or just further punishment but I do have LOTS of zucchini.  Pretty soon I'm going to need to have the kids open the car doors and just dump the zukes in without their knowledge. 

Since one can only give away so many zucchini…I felt I should use some myself and we've had zucchini frittata, sauted zucchini, more sauted zucchini, some fried zucchini and now this fabulous recipe.  And because I've eaten my share of "healthy" zuccini, I feel I've earned the right to venture into "yummy" zucchini, like zucchini bread, zucchini cake etc…

But here's what I would call a healthy recipe for zucchini…no frying and no chocolate.  :(  It was very good and Rob even said "I'd eat it again."  That's high praise for "healthy" zucchini.  And he did suggest we could move into the yummy zucchini category now.
