Fairly easy to grow, but they are space hogs.

Zucchini

Neighbors run and hide as I walk down the road
They see that I'm coming with a big basket load
With enthusiasm once more I'm coming to share
This abundance, this offering....why isn't it fair
That they should accept most graciously...this squash that I growed??

Zucchini is coming right out of my ears!
I've been handing it out for the last twenty years
I've told them to saute', and fry little cakes
To bake bread and muffins....whatever it takes

They are sick of my veggies....well...what should I do?
If my Soup friends were neighbors.........I WOULD GIVE SOME TO YOU!!!!

Fun to do; lovely shadings of colour. I know I always say that, but it's true; colours really speak to me.

Probably because you come from a very colourful country :) Hugs orinoco

No, actually because I have mild synasthesia. Sounds have shape, and sometimes colour; conversely, colours have a "feeling" to them.

Interesting Orinoco, have not heard of that before. Hugs.

I have never heard of yellow (or golden) zucchini. What is shown here I would probably call summer squash or, perhaps yellow crookneck if the description fits.

I like them saute'd together in butter with some mushrooms, onions, and garlic.

I've heard of the yellow ones. I think the ones with the yellow lines are Zucchini blossoms. Saw a chef on tv where she used these in cooking. She put some kind of cheese inside and then fried them.

We used to slice up the yellow and green zucchini with butter and onions. We used slice pita bread like a bagel and make pizzas. Toast the pita bread and then put the veggies on top and then mozzarella cheese. So yummy!

My "yum" was for nlb's squash saute'd in butter with mushrooms, onions and garlic.

I've had squash blossoms before - wasn't crazy about them.

The yellow zucchini are a bit firmer than the yellow squash and crookneck. They seem to last longer after picking, too. Try one sometime in your recipe for something different. I bet you'll like the taste.

Can't say I have ever seen any in stores around here. Zucchini is grown here in the summer that people have so much they can't give it away. But nobody grows yellow Zucchini. I wonder why.

Your little picture looks like my dog eccept mine is female. Love her so much!

Mine is completely white and female. A twelve year old rescue from a horrible breeder when the SPCA seized 32 dogs with malnutrition, mange, and dehydration, etc. She was well trained by a volunteer, as far as commands and walks. We have had Emma Lou over 8 years, and she is loving, but still has socialization issues, as rescues often have. Peeing in the house can sometimes be a problem, but she often tries to go on the paper. When people ask if one has been brought up in a barn, they are asking about these 32 Jack Russells. Of course she is conflicted about where to relieve herself. We try to keep her on a schedule if we are home, but otherwise...

Hope you don't mind, I had to change my icon to look like Mandy. She is also a rescue dog that I have had about eight years but seems to have had a much better life. She was very well trained - to the point of knowing the meaning of "out of the kitchen". She was found wandering the streets then stayed at the findeers home for a couple weeks before going to the humane society for just a couple more weeks before I adopted her.

Retirenow, we also have a rescue, a mini-dachshund. In Feb of 2015 he ruptured a disc and couldn't move his hind quarters including his tail. Fortunately I am retired and at home and was able to give him constant care and strengthening exercises and he started improving. By last Sept he was walking, a little wobbly at first but now does great. However, his ordeal left him incontinent. One of the things we've done is to buy a "belly band" for him. (You can do an internet search for them.) That way our rugs and floors stay free of urine. You might give a belly band a go for Emma Lou.

Dear nlb, if you look very closely at your new icon, you will see it is definitely not a "mandy" more like a mork lol. Hugs.

I knew that, aussie, but it was as close as I could get. Hoping we all have poor eyesight, which you have just disproved. Hugs and blessings to you.

Ah, we puzzle fanciers must love our dogs to work with them so much. I will look up the belly band option. She only pees if she is mad, if we are gone more than 4 hours, or right before bedtime if I am late taking her outside. Thank you for your help, trynfindit!

You're quite welcome, retire.

Oh, and when you buy a belly band the web site will probably have some "pads" you can buy as well. We just buy an appropriate sized sanitary napkin from the grocery.

I guess we're done with Olympics and Brazil related puzzles.

I remember back in the mid 1980's when many bars had happy hour buffets - a cheap way to eat dinner. Fried zucchini sticks or slices was one way to get your veggies for the day...That, and raw veggies with ranch dressing.

Never did bars except for the night I met my husband and maybe 2 other times b4 that. Never did happy hour anyway.
I just don't like health food no matter what. I only like salad if you throw in plenty of other stuff besides veg like nuts and cheese and fruit and bacon and......

You're right about the happy hour buffets, JamieT. I think you and I might be the major cause of those buffets going away - too many of us got our free dinners there!

Pixi, I'm with you about the salad. If someone brings me a salad with just lettuce, tomatoes and some cucumber I wonder where the rest of the salad is.

Do the yellow ones taste different from the green ones like peppers do? Yellow ones are new to me.
Anyone watching the Olympics? I only like the gymnastics for watching but they have been saturating the prime time with swimming and volleyball and holding the gymnastics off untill I'm too tired to stay up. I tried watching the live coverage and it is sooo tedious. Between every contestant is an ad. I guess for decent coverage you have to pay for it now. I hate it that they give a three hour time slot but don't say what's on when. I'm getting too old to get excited about it like I used to anyway.
Wishing you helpful info and timely satisfactions.

I'm with you on the gymnastics, and they're doing really well this year. One thing I noticed, and I've wondered if anyone else has, is that Michael Phelps seems very full of himself this year. He has reason to be proud, for sure, but he's taking it further than that. I've only watched him once, but I was put off by his demeanor.

Pixi I haven't detected a difference in taste between the yellow and green squashes. The yellow makes a nice splash of color. I enjoy both of them steamed with a little butter.

We've been watching them every evening, enjoy all three events, also have watched some the bike races.
I think that we enjoy the swimming the most our kids were in it in their younger days, so we are somewhat as
to be that good. Also have enjoyed some of the diving.

PS. We have 6 different channels that we can watch different things on thru out the afternoon and evening times. ("versed" should be before as)

Rahrah, I think Michael Phelps has been through SO MUCH when he started to self-destruct that, having regained his sense of self and life, he is in overdrive mode. Have patience and enjoy his renewed sense of love and self.

The difference is subtle, pixipixil. The yellow ones are softer, a little mellower.

Trynfindit, I think you're right, I watched as he received his 22 gold medal this evening, and he didn't appear to the as troubled as he had been. He really has been through a lot, thanks for reminding me, I need to be more gracious and less judgmental. :)

My problem is my husband will only pay for the cheapest cable so we are stuck with only the prime time free coverage. Also we have a big trip coming up and I can only afford a little time on the games and can't sit through to the gymnastics at 10:30 pm. I'm too tired to stay up so I've missed a lot but watched other things I was not so keen on. It's just frustrating. Many years ago ABC covered all the events of most of the competitions. You got to see everybody not just the top 3 or 4. And it was free. I tried to get it online but my cable company nixed it. Besides the gymnasts I like the diving and the kayak slalom. Haven't seen the men gymnasts. Maybe the TV is only covering what we win. I heard they didn't do well.

Green peppers always appealed to me, but when I aged my gut was upset by them. A friend told me that was because the green ones are not ripe. The yellow, orange, and red peppers are much more easily digested. I actually think they taste much better, also.

The one male gymnast I was really for actually broke his leg! It was awful. As soon as he landed it snapped. Of course the incident was shown, and it was so heartbreaking. Yes, the girls are doing much better. I always liked the games more when ABC had them, and there was such a feeling of unity. I remember as a kid, we'd all gather around the tv and shout to encourage the athletes on to victory! We'd get hoarse from all that shouting, and then when they'd win, we'd wear ourselves out from the celebrating. lol Good memories.

Then you have the right puzzle name. When I was a skater and still a junior member we loved to cheer ourselves hoarse for our dance teams. We skated on rollers, not ice.

In upstate NY we call the golden version yellow zucchini, If you do not care for the green version, try the golden. They have a distinctly different taste. Excellent pan fried with sliced onions, crushed garlic. and cherry or grape tomatoes. A little sea salt, fresh ground pepper and oregano seasons it during the cooking. Yum! Also can be grilled with a light brushing of Italian or Cesar salad dressing as a quick side dish for the meat you are grilling.

Zucchini! My former step-grandmother used to make zucchini bread and give to us during the holidays! I like it fried in olive oil with rosemary and basil!
