Everyone . . . Please Don't Laugh At Me!

Well okay, laugh if you must . . . but last night was the first night I have EVER made anything with zucchini. I don't know why, it's not that I dislike zucchini or anything, I guess I just don't know what to make with it. In fact, the only reason we had it in the house was because it came in our Winder Farms organic produce box this week. Jason was dropping hints for me to make zucchini bread, but if I have something that like that around I will eat it - and I can't afford those calories! :) So, I decided to just bake the zucchini and have it as a side dish for dinner. I roasted the sliced zucchini with garlic, salt and pepper and it was DELICIOUS! I've really been trying to cook new things - but I am awful in the kitchen. Well, maybe I would be better if I had more time, but by the time I get home from work and the gym I am exhausted and the last thing I want to do is cook. Now I know a healthy and quick side dish and maybe, just maybe I can start trying to cook more. And yes, I realize that posting about zucchini is way lame. :)

It's time for that butternut squash soup, isn't it?

Not way lame. Actually, I have this hidden secret that I don't know how to make a single dish of vegetables. Nothing! And I love zucchini, so maybe I will try to make that.

Not lame at all! It gives the rest of us ideas. So I work with this guy whose wife does a blog of recipes that SHE makes. I LOVE it...http://www.annemarie-tastebuds.blogspot.com/

Thanks for the tasty, easy recipe. I struggle in the kitchen as well. I'm all about convenience and cooking is not all the convenient to me....poor Bryan. I will have to try it.
I hope you have a great day!
