Something with zucchini (need to go to allrecipes.com for some inspiration this morning).

Well, after perusing my food board and allrecipes.com for ideas, this is what I've come up with for now:

Zucchini Pie

Tomato Squash Dish

Grandma's Zucchini Parmesan (can make several pans up and freeze them....which is a good thing)

Zucchini Soufflé

Stuffed Zucchini with Chicken Sausage

I have the ingredients for all of the recipes, so we'll see what strikes my fancy when I get home tonight.

Stuffed Zucchini sounds good! My zucchini are not doing well right now. :dk:

WE are having corn and blueberry salad. I am going to cook up some chicken breast, dice it, and mix it in.

OMG - how I love zucchini and squash anything!!!!!! My all-time favorite vegetable. Thanks for the link for those recipes! Something to add to my "TO-DO" list. ;)

Spinach and Mozzarella Ravioli, side salad and garlic bread. :yummy:

Making some boneless country ribs with a sugar-free dry rub, big salad, maybe homegrown zucchini (just boiled, nothing exciting).  Not sure what I'll do for dessert - maybe a single serve ice cream.

Tonight it's going to be a big salad, lettuce, tomato, cucumber, red onion, turkey, muenster cheese, olives (feta cheese for me- Paul doesn't like feta). Some chicken salad on the side. Olive Garden dressing on the salad.

The old Jared diet-- a Subway turkey breast sand. Anybody seen Jared lately?

We had the Zucchini Pie last night for dinner.....it was ok, nothing exciting. A little bland, even with everything that I added to it. Our son was here for dinner, though (he had come up to get Maggie) and he thought it was really good. Rick took the last piece in his lunch today.

Tonight we will split a chicken breast. Rick will grill the breast pieces and we'll have them with a bit of lettuce and tomato in a sandwich. With some zucchini slaw as a side. And I took some baked beans out of the freezer for Rick (he's starting to get a little tired of zucchini).

I had chicken, potato wedges and macaroni salad. Don't get too excited the potato wedges and macaroni salad were from Albertson's deli but really good!

Tequila-lime grilled shrimp over a bed of rice pilaf. I have half a bag of sugar peas in the freezer that I'm going to make, too. And there are two slices of pineapple left that Rick can throw onto the grill when he does the shrimp.

Good question. :lol3:

I ahve string beans and cucumbers in the fridge from the garden that should be used, so I'll probably make up some kind of cucumber salad. With that maybe salmon for Aaron and shrimp for me?

We have gift certificates to Chili's, to Panera, to the Macaroni Grill, and to Longhorn (that's pretty much what people buy us for Christmas....they always say that we don't eat out often enough). 

Any one of the above will do.

Goulash and a mixed salad.

We have tomatoes, cucumbers and all sorts of lettuce coming out of our ears!

Ditto here with the salad! We definitely have to use some things up. I took some turkey tips out of the freezer and hopefully they will thaw by dinner time.

Perfect gift for you, Pam! I love Macaroni Grill and we will go on a special occasion once in awhile.
