- I'll need to move to a house with a sunny backyard.
- I'll need to devise some sort of automatic watering system because there's no chance I'd remember to water the plants enough to keep them alive through harvest.
- I'll need to make an arrangement with the rabbits, chipmunks, and squirrels that they will not nibble on my produce. I will stand for no nibbling. (Do you hear that, chipmunk who was lurking around my potted herbs today?!)
- I'll need to win the lottery so I can hire a gardener to tend this hypothetical vegetable garden. Who am I kidding? I don't have a green thumb, and I don't think I'll have one someday.
Until a lucky lotto scratch-off ticket makes my veggie dreams a reality, I've compiled a list of zucchini recipes to help all you gardeners out there use up your produce.
Salmon and Vegetables in Parchment--Sounds swanky, but it's really quite simple.
Herb-Rubbed Pork Tenderloin with Zucchini--Redolent with fresh herbs and you only dirty one pan. What's not to love?
Pasta with Zucchini and Lemon-Yogurt Sauce--Easy, healthy, and perfect for meatless Monday.
Summer Harvest Bread--It's called "Summer Harvest Bread." Need I say more?
Carrot Zucchini Bread--This bread is really good...
...but I was just looking for an excuse to share that cute picture of my kid baking again.
