Ahhhh ::cue angels singing::
I've never been a zucchini girl.
But I am a born and raised Jersey Girl; which means I have fond memories of husking sweet Jersey corn out on the back porch, I will randomly stop at a roadside farm because their nectarines look oh so juicy, and for years I claimed to only like tomatoes that came from my Mom's garden or had the Jersey Fresh stamp of approval. But zucchini? Puh-lease. I have better veggies to eat. Until now.
A few weeks ago I randomly bought zucchini at the grocery store. They were dirt cheap, and therefore I bought them. After doing some research, since I'm really not a zucchini girl and lack basic knowledge of zucchini preparation, I sauteed some up, and it was a delish meal.
I also left a few aside, did some peeling, chopping, and ahhhh ::cue those angels again::.
So simple. So refreshing. So perfect! And that is why I've been craving zucchini non-stop!
Today I had to go fill out new hire paperwork for my new part-time job,,,at a gym! I had to go to their other location down by where I went to college. On the way home, after stopping for Dunkin', of course...
I saw this. Only a mile down the road? I'm in! And they better have zucchini...
Thankfully they did. For the sake of everyone involved. I also picked up some:
All for $5.55!
Although I've been on a raw zucchini kick, there are some recipes from around the blogosphere that I am dying to try! Check em out:
