Too much zucchini?

zucchiniI accidently bought two bags of zucchini at the Jean-Talon Market on Sunday. So we’re going zucchini crazy. Sunday evening we had that caprese salad with grilled zucchini, and Monday night we had an awesome cream of zucchini soup (very mildly curried) along with a leek tart (made from market leeks).

Today I had leftover zucchini soup for lunch, and tonight we had a huge pile of grilled zucchini (and grilled red peppers and grilled onions) with our barbequed pork loin (that had a honey/mustard/balsamic “crust”). Tomorrow’s dinner will be more leftover zucchini soup and pizza with (leftover) grilled zucchini, peppers, and onions. And after that we’ll still have about four zucchinis left.

I suppose I could always make a rata- rattatu- ratooto– that thing with zucchini and eggplant that I can’t spell and can’t even say right (I call it rat-a-tat-tooie or ratta-ka-blooie).

Abundance. Love it while you have it.
