Zucchini Lovin’

It’s a typical Sunday in summer.  My family would gather around the dinner table for lunch and have a big dinner together, just the four of us gathering for some family time for once.  During the summer season my mom is constantly making anything she can think of containing zucchini.  However, anything that she can think of is only fried zucchini (my personal favorite), steamed zucchini, and zucchini bread.  We have a small garden behind the house, but that small garden contains so many zucchinis.  Much like Barbara Kingsolver, we don’t have the slightest clue what to do with those vegetables.  We ask neighbors if they would like to have some, but unfortunately, most of those delicious vegetables get thrown out; we have no animals to feed the zucchini to.

Every Sunday (this was about five years ago, when my brother and I were still living at home), we would have a nice dinner as a family because Sunday’s are our family days, with having off work and sport activities.  My mom would make everybody’s favorite meal, and since it’s Summer, zucchini season, it would typically be zucchini with either corn on the cob or hamburgers.  Note, that we didn’t have zucchini every Sunday, I’m just specifying a family favorite meal.

Below is the recipe for fried zucchini.  It’s not hard at all but it is a little time consuming.  What you’ll need:

1 Zucchini

Olive oil

3 Eggs


First, peel the zucchini then cut it up.  Put a little bit of olive oil in a frying pan.  Set the frying pan on high.  Beat the three eggs in a bowl.  In a separate bowl put some flour in it.  Dip the sliced up zucchini in the bowl containing the eggs then dip the zucchini in the flour and place it in the frying pan.  Fry the zucchini until golden brown.

    I wonder why it is that zucchini plants make more than, say blueberry plants. You never hear people complaining about getting too many blueberries, but people ALWAYS have too many zucchini.
