Will work for zucchinis

A friend at school offered to bring me in a zucchini from her garden recently. I said sure, and she showed up with a zucchini big enough to knock out a grizzly bear.

The only thing I really do with zucchinis is make my Zucchini Bread dessert. If you check the recipe, it calls for 1 1/2 cups of zucchini, and in brackets tells you that this is about two small zucchinis. From this sucker, about 1/6th of it amounted to 2 cups of shredded zucchini.

Do big zucchinis like this taste as good as the small ones? I've always wondered if they taste worse when you let them grow too big.

I had ten of these guys all given to me by a neighbour. I've made so many meals with zucchini this year and I still have one last giant left.

I've had friends give me zucchinis from their gardens as well and they always seem to be jumbo size and I have to figure out what to do with the extra. I've started to wonder if they're really my friends (haha).

I've just bought a fabulous book called 'red velvet & chocolate heartache' by harry eastwood :
it's full of cake recipes that use grated courgette *as we call them here in UK*, or carrot, sweet potato, pumpkin and other veg! a good alternative and yum too ^_^

*great blog!
