"Squash never fail to reach maturity. You can spray them with acid, beat them with sticks and burn them; they love it."
- S.J. Perelman
I seemed to have lost the zucchini wars and had some to get rid of. So it was time to peruse though the weekend's reading material to find something to make with them, other than the usual recipes.
I didn't find anything in those (make note to self: check pond for zombies before swimming).
So the next step is the tried and true recipe cards. Here's a good one!

My Dad has a garden and as gardens grow, he usually has an abundance of zucchini. He and my stepmom did their best with the overabundance. But after zucchini bread, zucchini cake and zucchini margaritas (just kidding) it was time to give away the crop. This involved putting the veggies (with a few nice ripe tomatoes in as decoys) into a paper bag, leaving them on the porch of some poor Lutheran church member, ringing the doorbell and. . . . . RUN!!
Here's a way to make some disappear that even die hard "I hate zucchini, even zucchini bread!" people at the range snarfed up.
And I didn't even have to ring a doorbell. Though I did leave a small plate of them on the porch swing with a note for the Fed Ex guy who delivers my reloading stuff. They disappeared as well.
