I didn't plant any zucchini or squash this year. It takes up so much room and we don't eat very much of it any way. I have my hands full with beans, with a bucketful ready to can this morning. I did pick up some local sweet corn and a squash for dinner last night.
I love to slice the zucchini (or other squash) thinly, dredge it in flour, then egg and milk, and then in seasoned breadcrumbs. Let them sit in the refrigerator at least an hour before you fry them up crisp. Sprinkle with salt or grated parmesan cheese. I served it with the first-of-the-season sweet corn and some grilled bratwursts.
I'm still waiting for the first ripe tomato.
I got a run in this morning. I decided to go down the road since the flies were so bad on the trail. It was ok until I got to the pit bull at the corner house. I started to turn around, but yelled at it when it was following me. The lady heard me yell and called him, so I kept going. Apart from the dog and the scent of roadkill, it wasn't too bad. I just had to keep my ankles loose. I was glad I had my pepper spray on me at least. Coming back, I kept watching for the dog and a bull frog scared me half to death LOL. Ah well, it's better than shaking the whole house to a workout dvd when the whole family is home!
