Dinner Wednesday, 8-8-2018 ~ National Sneak Some Zucchini Onto Your Neighbor's Porch

I know of few of you have mentioned the rather generous yields your zucc plants have provided. Today may be the day to move some of those beauties along: National Sneak Some Zucchini Onto Your Neighbor's Porch Day

No zucchini on our plates tonight. We'll be having shrimp po'boys (I need to use up some of the Kaiser rolls) paired up with the last of the corn and bean salad from yesterday. I'm thinking of making a clafoutis for dessert, too, but I'm only at the "thinking" stage.

Poulet a la Creme is what the recipe says. It's chicken thighs pan roasted with shallots, mushrooms and cream.

Sounds like my kind of recipe Andy. Would you please pass on the link?


We're having Asian Napa Chicken Salad I used to do ages ago when it was called politically incorrect "Oriental" Salad.
I ran across the recipe in my old recipe box, and it's been years.

Love the intentions of the zucchini title.


Yesterday I made some 'mock apple pie filling' with zucchini. It's essentially apple pie filling with the zucchini sliced up and it looks and tastes like apple pie filling. I thickened it with sure-jell but you could use flour or cornstarch as you please.


We'll be eating leftovers, while we are making some colby cheese today.

Well I didn’t sneak it onto neighbors porch but ... I snuck it into my hubs dinner tonight.

Homemade Italian flavored turkey meatballs and sauce. Served over Barilla zucchini and spinach veggie spaghetti and topped with Parmesan regiano and pecorino Romano cheeses.

This was a first on the meatballs and the pasta. The pasta has 1 serving of veggies in each serving. The meatballs were very mild. Next time I will use more fresh herbs, garlic, onion and salt. The sauce was perfect. I will definitely make this again because it tasted great. No pictures unfortunately. Next time.

I think those zukes multiply like rabbits!

Mrs. T and I went out to lunch at a waterfront restaurant, and we both had deep fried full belly clams. So tasty, but that's our quota of grease for the month. For dinner Mrs. T had cheese and crackers, I had some leftover grilled chicken thighs and an ear of corn.

I need another cookbook like a hole in the head, but I just couldn't resist this one that sounds like a treasure.
