The boyfriend brought over 18 pounds of squash this last week. (Yes, I weighed it.) I hadn’t quite made it through the last squash gift so it became sort of important to find a way not to be buried under summer deliciousness.
Then there are the muffin recipes I made with previous squash deliveries: Wholesome Zucchini Muffins (much tastier than the name implies) and Nonfat Chocolate Zucchini Muffins (in which I discovered that I like my chocolate and my zucchini separate, but everyone else in the world loves these so it’s a great way to make other people happy while getting rid of squash).
The Boyfriend’s favorite method involves marinating long wedges of squash in different flavoured and balsalmic vinegars, olive oil, dried herbs, and garlic powder, then either grilling or sautéing depending on what method is available. Unstoppably delicious.
Since “Sneak Zucchini Onto Your Neighbor’s Porch Day” has recently passed, I hope everyone has more than enough summer squash to keep them happy.
What’s your favorite way to handle a squash glut?
