The large yellow flower buds opened up as wide as the plant would allow first thing in the morning as the sun crept up over the ridge. It was as if to grasp all the sunshine and dew it could as it continued to grow into a mature zucchini, bright green, strong, and solid. Once they start on their upward growth, zucchini, or any squash for that matter; don't stop. As with any garden during the summer months, the garden fairies do their magic and we are blessed with many zucchini, squash, and eggplants. Not very often, but sometimes, you just want to fairies to take a break, and not bring so many vegetables at one time, but alas; this is not the case. I put together this little recipe to warm the souls of all, and still incorporate the use of this nifty vegetable while pondering the many stories of the farm. Go ahead, take a breath, enjoy the work of the zucchini fairies and the nourishment the zucchini plant brings.
