Zucchini, that time of the year again!!

I know this thread pops up annually about this time of the year. With my 6 zucchini plants beginning to flower, I just want to get myself prepared for the endless amount of zucchini's Ill be dealt with. I dont necessarily want to rehash all the previous threads about zucchinis, But I guess what Im asking is if anyone has come up with any new ideas, recipes, uses for zucchinis since last year. Im sure ill be making soups, zucchini bread, quiche, zucchini parmesan hero's, stuffed zucchinis ..... Just looking for a few new ideas.

Send me some. Mine all got powdery mildew already and are dying. I'm going to try some new plants in another part of the garden.

Make zucchini chips, dehydrated kind, not the fried appetizer type.

Do you have a dehydrator? I sliced some zucchini's up last summer and made chips with them. You can spice them up anyway you like. Italian, hot & spicy flavors were pretty good. Easy to do.
Clean, take off the skin. They are a little tough if left on. Slice, spice up and dry until they are crisp. Mine took about 4 hours if that to dry. Great chips for ranch or sour cream type dips. I kept them stored in mason jars.

No recipe but how about some zucchini haiku?

Zucchini sleeps not
Divides, spreads and covers the land
Squashes veggie joy
