What to do with all that zucchini

When I returned from my Miami vacation, I hoped that my container garden would be overrun with zucchinis.

No such luck.

I had six nice-sized zucchinis, half of which were entirely or partially chewed up by slugs.

Harvesting the zucchinis reminded me of the times my family, friends, and coworkers had more than an abundant supply of the green, delicately-flavored, cylindrical beauties. I remember my dad saying one year that the zucchinis were getting as big firewood and soon we’d have enough for a cord of them.

Are you looking for recipes for a great harvest of zucchinis?

Zucchini Fritters, Zucchini Ricotta Frittata, Zucchini Stuffed With Turkey Sausage, Zucchini With Thyme, Chocolate Zucchini Cake, Roasted Zucchini With Garlic, and Dad's Ratatouille are some of the intriguing recipes offered by Simple Recipes.

Chocolate Zucchini Cake and Zucchini and Eggs recipes come alive in up-close photos in a post, “Here’s What You Should Really Do With All That Zucchini,” on the King Arthur Flour blog.

Zucchini Pancakes, Zucchini Chocolate Cake, and Squash-Sausage Skillet Dinner are delights offered by The (Greeley, Colo.) Tribune.

Enjoy your zucchini. It's a gardening joy.
