Thursday Totals

14 cups of grated zucchini, frozen in small packages for winter baking.

13 loaves of zucchini bread in the freezer. Make that 12. There's also a loaf of banana bread in there. (Elisha, Kris, Jay's fiance, says her mom freezes these breads all the time, and they thaw wonderfully.)

About a gallon and a half of dill pickles, um, pickling, in brine in the frig.

One chocolate zucchini cake, which everyone agreed was delicious.

A little more than half a gallon of cucumber salad dressed with olive oil and apple cider vinegar. Yum. We'll probably get tired of eating it before we run out of it, but it's going to be "Yum" until then!

Six garlic braids, made from the garlic I dug on Monday. I also boiled about a third of those Red Pontiac potatoes from Monday. They'll be potato salad, au gratin potatoes, hash browns and other yummy concoctions over the next week or so.

May I go to bed now?

I'm going to try fixing my cucumbers with oil and vinegar. I can't find my creamy dressing recipe, and I'm out of mayo anyway.

Do you happen to have a small-scale ref. pickle recipe? I'm getting about a quart of pickles at time off my vines - not enough to do a huge batch of canned pickles!

If you get tired of that cucumber salad feel free to send some our way!
