A day in the life (& death) of a "giant" zucchini?

Day One: 

Zucchini Burger Sandwich

Cut the large end of the zucchini for the amount of servings needed.

Create 1 inch slices and place in fry pan with olive oil.

Saute until tender...sprinkling with your favorite spices!

Serve on Toasted Whole Grain Bread
  ...adding condiments as desired...
(the zucchini is the "star"... the "meat")
 I like sliced tomatoes, fresh basil pesto,
lettuce & onions
You can forget the cheese and you will really cut the calories!

Come back for "Day 2" tomorrow!
After all...this is one GIANT zucchini!

I am linking up with "Night Owl Crafting" today for her "Hoo are You" #47!

Leslie has a list of different questions to answer...
so we can all get to know each other better!
The question that I am answering is:
3. What types of food do you tend to eat more of in the summer?

Can you guess?  More fruits and vegetables...like zucchini of course!
How about you?

Stay Cozy, Carrie

Delish!

YAY....a good suggestion with what to do with Zucchini, the vegetable that never goes away. Kinda like a rabbit, they just keep producing more and more and more.
I think that sounds good though.
