Looks's always nice to get ideas for meals from others : ) I get tired of having the same thing all the time because I lack in the creativity department!

Your menu looks good. Thanks for stopping by my blog. You could make this with your zucchini -


Bake this zucchini bread flavored with cinnamon when zucchini are plentiful
from the garden.

Preparation time: 20 min Baking time: 55 min
Yield: 24 servings (2 loaves)

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 cups sugar
1 cup LAND O LAKES® Butter, softened
3 eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla
2 medium (2 cups) zucchini, shredded
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Heat oven to 350°F. Combine flour, cinnamon, salt, baking soda, baking
powder, cloves and nutmeg in large bowl; set aside.

Combine sugar, butter, eggs and vanilla in large mixer bowl. Beat at medium
speed, scraping bowl often, until smooth (2 to 3 minutes). Reduce speed to
low; add flour mixture. Continue beating until well mixed (1 to 2 minutes).
(Mixture will be very thick.) Stir in zucchini and walnuts by hand.

Spread mixture into 2 greased (8x4-inch) loaf pans. Bake for 55 to 65
minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10
minutes; remove from pans. Cool completely; store refrigerated.

a lady I met recently told me she made chocolate cake with her excess zucchini! unfortunately I don't have a recipe but she said it was moist and sweet and her family loved it... when I googled "zucchini chocolate cake" a bunch of recipes popped up.

The Mom of 'em said...

I wonder if you could use the zucchini in a spaghetti sauce? not sure. I'm cooking-challenged. Your menu looks great this week!

Bugzmommy said...

Wow, I am going to have to try that Peach Sweet Potato Salad Recipe you posted earlier...looks yumm-o!

Susie said...

Watermelon chicken sounds too good! I'm going to have to try your peach potato salad!

Linda @ Brazilian Food Love said...

Great menu!

I have a great zucchini recipe (sort of pie that) I made once with pink pepper. It´s great. I´ll see if I have time to post it tomorrow!

Miss Huckleberry said...

I've always wanted to try turkey burgers... maybe I'll venture out and give them a try :) It all sounds delish!

Jammy said...

I've been meaning to try fish tacos for some time, but haven't yet. Sounds good!!

Jenn =D

Annie Elizabeth said...

Miss Huckleberry- I will post my turkey burgers recipe tomorrow. It took me 12 years to find the perfect turkey burger recipe and for a bonus totally foolproof .

Jess said...

Your menu looks great too!

I've done this with eggplant, but think zucchini would also work:

brown up 1 lb of ground turkey or ground beef in a pot, when browned add 1 28 oz can crushed tomato, and 1 cup of shredded zucchini. Boil up 1 lb of rigatoni in water, drain, mix with sauce and put into a baking dish (9x13) top with some mozzarella or italian mix shredded cheese and bake at 350 degrees covered for 25 min, and uncovered for 10 until cheese is bubbly.

You could try adding the zucchini to meatloaf, or hamburger patties.
