We got back from a week of vacation and found several large zucchini in our garden waiting to be picked. It's that time a year again! Whether you grow your own or buy from a farmer's market or the supermarket, it's a great time to enjoy the fresh bounty. Here's some recipes that incorporate zucchini from my blog. Enjoy!

Pan-friend zucchini rounds (I can't believe I haven't posted this! Just slice zucchini into 1/2-inch to 3/4-inch rounds, dip first in flour seasoned with s & p (and fresh herbs if you want), then dip inbeaten egg then in  1 c. breadcrumbs (I like panko) with about 1/4 c. grated Parmsean and a litle s & p. Fry in a saucepan in hot oil until browned on one side. Flip, brown other side then let sit for a bit on a paper-towel lined plate. Eat as is or dip in marinara sauce.
