Zucchini Season

Oh I am loving my garden. Tomatoes are almost ripe. The red potatoes were harvested and subsequently digested. And I can pick a delicious zucchini off one of my 8 plants nearly every day.

While I prefer to eat my zucchini sauteed in olive oil with onion and seasoned salt, Dan likes his baked into something chocolatey. So, I made him a cake.

It didn't turn out terrific, so I won't post the recipe, but I will tell you that the best part was the carmel glaze I made up using butter, brown sugar, milk, and vanilla. But seriously what wouldn't taste good with that on top? I'd be tempted to eat my own head if that glaze was poured over it.

See? The kids couldn't keep their lips off that glaze.

AWESOME. Also, I have a good zucchini chocolate cake recipe if you want it.
