Courge is French for squash, so courgette is a little squash.

Oh I know! Both “courgette” and “zucchini” have “c” in them. “Aubergine” and “eggplant” don’t. Now all I have to do is remember the mnemonic!
Aubergine and eggplant both start with a vowel.

I shared this a few years ago:
Okonomiyaki

Dang, wish I still could access the foodie shops in Ottawa!

That seems way too complicated and ingredient heavy. The prepared flour (okonomiyakiko), a couple of eggs, the cabbage and some green onions work just fine for me. Sometimes I’ll add a bit of kimchi. I like seafood as the filling (oysters are particularly delicious), and of course okonomi sauce, Kewpie mayo, nori and katsuobushi. And sometimes an egg.
