Easy and delicious ways to enjoy zucchini and yellow summer squash

I admit, growing up I didn't much care for zucchini or yellow summer squash. The only way I like zucchini was in zucchini bread or mom's homemade zucchini pickles -- both loaded with sugar. I guess having bushels and bushels..and bushels and bushels..of zucchini coming out of our garden didn't help much. Eating zucchini 18 times a week might turn anyone off.

However, I have found as I grow older (and older and older) that I actually do like zucchini, and often find myself eating it at least 6 to 8 times every week in a variety of ways. I like yellow squash too, but not nearly as much as I like zucchini. And....both can be found rather inexpensively -- the most I've ever paid is $1.29 per pound for either. Usually I find it for 99¢ per pound and during peak season I often find it for 59¢ or less per pound. Good enough reason for me to eat it.

A former "picky eater" I had to figure out ways to get my own picky eaters (hubby included) to eat zucchini and yellow summer squash. You'll find just a few ideas here, and don't forget to check out my ideas for creating the perfect custom blend of mixed vegetables using fresh produce and frozen vegetables.

Enjoy and Cheers!
