Look at what I found in my little garden yesterday:
3 lb Clarimore Light Green Zucchini, aka, "Big Boy"
A beautiful but very sneaky light green Clarimore zucchini hid quietly amongst the big squash leaves and the now crispy green bean foliage to surprise me yesterday. I actually shrieked with delight when I spied him hiding there right in front of me.
These light green zukes are usually sweeter and more tender than the dark green ones, so this will make a couple of batches of very nice zucchini soup or perhaps I will bake this one in the oven since our evenings are becoming cooler now.
So far my little garden has produced 46 lbs of squash this season. 19 lbs of that was this light green variety. I have really enjoyed being creative and using the zucchini to make all kinds of meals, appetizers and desserts. More and more I am realizing that I need my creative outlets to soothe my soul and keep me somewhat sane. This blog is one of those cherished creative outlets of mine. I love writing, and I definitely enjoy the friends I have made through blogging. Thank you all who read my blog, both the known commenters and the "lurkers".
Now to go be creative with this sneaky Big Boy....
