Zucchini, zucchini and more zucchini.....

It's that time of year, when you go out one day to see a couple of tiny baby zucchini and the next day they are huge.  I went out to cut the grass on Thursday night and happened to drive past my two zucchini plants only to discover another couple of giant zucchini.  So I decided to make some carrot zucchini muffins, the recipe is here

I made 4 dozen, using 4 cups of shredded zucchini.  I shredded the rest of the zucchini and had 5 x 2 cup bags for the freezer.  Also in the photo is my first ripe tomato.  I am going to have it with my lunch on Friday.

Dh won't eat anything with bones in it.  So I had bought some boneless skinless chicken breasts.  I personally find them tasteless.  However I poached a couple in a strong chicken stock and then thickened the stock with Chicken Bisto and cornstarch/cornflour and it was so good.   I will be cooking it like that again.

Otherwise Thursday was a quiet day.  I did a bit of stripping and decided that wasn't my kind of job.  Paint stripping that is.

I am at work on Friday my last day, then I can get on with decorating the bedroom, bathroom and the closets.

There you go, cutting that grass again. . . . . .

That looks great. It is amazing how those things can grow so big so fast. I have so many right now, that I'm thinking of giving the chickens a fresh zucchini treat.

Gill, I didn't think that you could freeze zucchini--I thought that you couldn't. One of the girls I work with has it coming out of her ears too, and she thinks the same thing--I'll have to let her know that it can be done--THANKS!! Enjoy your weekend!!!
