Sunday Farmer's Market, kinda

I didn't go to the market this week. I didn't need to pick up my box and I had so many veggies i just had to do something with them. Just making some tomato sauce on zucchini and ravioli wasn't going to cut it. I found out that you can freeze bell pepper as well as shredded zucchini for bread. and since you can mix yellow squash in with zucchini to make bread, i made a mixture.

I managed not to shred a finger. Excellent. :)


Here's the recipe i use for zucchini bread. I got it from my CSA's biweekly email.

MIX TOGETHER:
1CUP VEGETABLE OIL
2CUPS GRATED ZUCCHINI
2CUPS SUGAR
3 EGGS
1TBL VANILLA
SIFT TOGETHER 2 CUPS FLOUR, 1 TBL CINNAMON, ½ TSP. SALT, ¼ TSP. OF BAKING POWDER, 2 TSP. BAKING SODA. BLEND INTO THE ZUCCHINI MIX. ADD NUTS OR RAISINS, IF DESIRED.
POUR INTO A GREASED LOAF PAN AND BAKE AT 350 FOR 1 HOUR

Makes 1 really thick loaf or two thinner ones.

I ended up with 3 bags of future bread mixings out of several small yellow squash, a couple small zucchini and part of that big one. Here's a pic with one of the survivors. It was a temporary reprieve though as that one ended up in the tomato sauce.

I also made kale chips. B seemed to like them once he tried them but i know he was apprehensive. There are recipes all over the web but don't over cook as they get a little burny flavored which isn't as good. opening the container this morning they smelled just like good potato chips!

I succeeded in cleaning out my crisper drawer for the first time in about 2 months.
I've only got a few tomatoes and cucumbers, a little honeydew melon, and one eggplant that i'll be using for dinner tonight. YES! but i'll be getting more veggies next week. eek!

  2. It seems like zucchini just grows like crazy. I get tons of that and yellow squash in my CSA box each time. I like that the bread i make doesn't have nuts but several recipes call for pecans or walnuts if you like those!
