The Final Day In: The Life (& death) of a Giant Zucchini

Zucchini - Basil Pesto


Fresh...fresh...fresh!
This pesto turned out just wonderful!
I can't really give you a recipe...because much of my creating is not
an exact science!

I used my last 2 cups or so of shredded zucchini...added some basil from the garden, 
walnuts, plain non-fat yogurt, a little cottage cheese, olive oil and spices!
It is a yummy spread or dip!

 (By the way when I say "garden" all of my gardening is done in containers on a small patio!)
I will share photos of my garden soon...


Well there you have it...my zucchini is gone....
I hope you have enjoyed my recipes and perhaps it has inspired you to
get creative with your zucchini bounty too...
or maybe even a zucchini that may be dropped off on your door step!

Stay Cozy,
Carrie

This looks fabulous! What a great way to use garden veggies. More impressive, you use all your zucchini. Squash in the summer can be the gift that keeps on giving (smile).

Great post. This is my first time to your blog. Very nice.
