when life gives you zucchini
Ok so life didn't give me any zucchini but my friend Molly gave me a huge one. Dad and Doug are spending the day working on the bathroom and I spent some time turning the huge zucchini into lunch. I followed this recipe Molly pinned on pinterest for Sweet Corn and Zucchini pie. that zucchini was a foot long and big. I was jealous- she has huge zucchini and I grew 10 pea pods! haha, well she shares :) sauteing, for the corn I just used 1.5 cups frozen corn, and I was running out of butter so sauteed in half butter/half olive oil 3 beaten happy eggs and cubed Dubliner sharp cheddar cheese It smelled amazing, looked beautiful, and tasted great. My dad gave me a literal thumbs up. Doug liked it except for the onions (of course) And for dessert, since I had another half of that monster zucchini, dark chocolate zucchini brownies! A recipe from Liz. the secret is blending the cubed zucchini in with the wet parts so that you don't see identifiable zucchini bits mixing wet and dry, and of course I added a good sized handful of Ghiradelli chocolate chips. My only other substitution was half almond milk/half applesauce for the yogurt, I'm not sure if it made a difference in taste/texture or not I feel like they have a bit of a 'healthy' taste to them, but I liked them!
