The Great Harvest

I went into the backyard yesterday to glance over the vegetable beds and find some zucchini to bring in for staff meal. It had been 2 days since I last picked the squash, so I expected to find just a few little guys. Well, I don't know what happened exactly, but shit went crazy back there. The squash I found were aggressively large. I brought some to my neighbors, and the rest to work. We ended up using them as a display and then my coworkers brought them home to make jokes with.
I went out to the beds this morning, full of fear, and found three more. It's going to be a long summer of squash recipes. I have included an image of the zucchini noodles and jacky on the zucchini phone, talking to his grandma.

Also: Buttermilk Pie. I can't give out this recipe now as I am still working on it for the pie contest, but this was my first draft effort. Not bad!

Seriously, zucchini, SIT DOWN! You're taking up all the space and making Jackie feel like he has to call his whole family, everyday! (Just kidding, you're beautiful). Jenny, make some zucchini bread that is amazing, and then tell me how to copy you.
