Got Zucchini?

We do.. We have Zucchini coming out our ears. Jason's parents have a garden so his Mom keeps us stocked in fresh produce. Zucchini being the 3rd top veggie we get from them. I had never made anything with Zucchini before so I hopped on Google and All and found some recipes.. Oooh and My grandma gave me a recipe of hers that I have always loved.. Not sure if She made it up or got it somewhere.. But I'm going to share it..

(I made that name up since it was nameless)

Don't let this picture fool you LOL it really is YUMMY!!! My 5 year old didn't want to eat it because it looked like "Bomit" (vomit) but I made him taste it and he ate every bite!

2 pounds of ground beef or turkey
Some dried minced onion cooked with the ground beef
1 can of corn
1c. of chopped or cubed zucchini
1 jar of spaghetti sauce
soy sauce.. I used probably about 1/4 cup but I LOVE soy sauce.. just
give it a "generous" amount

Brown hamburger and minced onions, drain.
Add Spag Sauce, Corn (drained), zucchini, and soy sauce.
Return to stove and "cook" til its all heated up.

I just let mine heat up until the corn bread was done.

The picture doesn't look appetizing but I assure you it IS!!! :)

Fried Zucchini

Jason requested this one..

I just took about 1/4in slices.. dipped them in egg and a lil milk and covered them in flour. They were okay but next time Im going to batter them in cracker crumbs..
