Bigger is Not Always Better


When your neighbor or relative or so-called friend brings you a gigantic zucchini squash as a gift from their garden, don't be deceived.  They don't like you at all.  Zucchini and staight-necked squash from the garden should be small, baby fruit: sliced on the diagonal, tossed in extra-virgin olive oil, sprinkled with Mrs. Dash and some garlic powder and then grilled.  It's both sweet and savory.  It is a venture into the succulent world of some of God's best creations. It is heaven exploding on your tastebuds, actually nourishing your bones. 

I know, I know – you think you don't like zucchini and yellow squash.  That is just a lie from the Devil that you have chosen to believe.  It is also the fault of the people pawning those big, green, vegetable brick-bats off on you.

If some one brings you one of those out-of-control giant zucchini's, they just didn't want to take the time to shred it into oblivion for a zucchini casserole or something themselves.  They looked at it, thought to themselves: What the heck am I suppose to do with this monstrosity?  And decided to make it YOUR problem, knowing you'll feel complete guilt and indebtedness and be forced to use it…somehow.

Seriously, people, get past the guilt and "share" it with some one else!…Jeanie

NOTE TO SELF:  Watch those plants carefully.  Think about who I'd want to give it to if one should get out of control.  Hmmmmm….who last wronged me?
