    YAHOO!!!!! YEEE HAAA! WHOOPIEE! Well I came to clinic today and one of the nurses brought in a bunch of cherries so I am taking home about 12 cups of sour cherries to make some syrup tonight with. Never made it but Jaba made me jealous yesterday talking about making syrup and jam with her cherries and tada! today some magically show up. amazing. yesterday the nurse brought in some zucchini cookies she made with oatmeal and butterscotch chips. She is now bringing me the recipe they were so soft and chewy and nothing like zucchini. I brought one out to Mr. Picky himself and he said those were the best ones he had ever had and he would eat those. REALLY? so now I can use up one of those oversized squashes and make him happy at the same time. tada!

    When I've missed one of those oversized zucchini in the garden I found a recipe for mock apple pie on line - it used a lot of zucchini - less the seeds - it was delicious, I added more tapioca to the mix as it's a little jucier than what I like; flavors are incredible. I also use oversized zucchini in spaghetti sauce and make zucchini fritters - Brian's favorite is to have them peeled sliced 1/4" - 3/8" thick - dipped in egg then crushed crackers and fried - sort of like fried green tomatoes.

    I've made that pie too, tastes just like apple. Never tried them fried like that, sounds good though. Usually just stir fry them with onions, garlic and some corn. Just enough so they stay a little crunchy, love it that way. Will have to watch for the new sign up and see what I can make for the next one.

    YAY! It arrived safely. Glad you liked the colors. Hope you think of watermelons when you look at it.

    I'm off to the county fair tonight to eat food on a stick - have a few beers and attend arena rock band Hairball concert; got my 80's big hair rock band groove on - gotta love that music!

    Seems I only have time to read all the latest posts lately so that being said here are some thoughts.
    Congrats on your new machine, Leeza. I can tell you are loving it already. I am not going to sign up for any swaps for a while. I just have to say no. Really need to get GD's graduation quilt started and since it is my own design, it will be a challenge. Linda, I am glad you are getting settled in. I tried a new zucchini recipie tonight. I liked it- DH did not. It was called Zucchini Parmesan Crisps. Tomorrow we head off to fair to help with taking down displays. Then all done for another year. Night!

    Yes it is! my table is not very large just a squatty little thing. It seats four well .. six? ha ha. Yes it is watermelon colored isn't it? perfect for summer.

    apple pie tasting zucchini? ok Jan I will take another large got lost under the leaves zucchini Today I hope to get set up for making raspberry jam tomorrow. maybe jelly instead .. an idea..I don't mind the seeds but some people do. oh I need that recipe btw. I was thinking quiche myself. I love quiche. now I should make one of those too.. guess I love cooking is the problem. its a problem I have 10 lbs I want to lose and no desire to do it. how does that make any sense? I am hungry all the time. and I can eat only so many nectarines and plums per day without or kill.
