Ok, don’t everyone get all nervous on me that this has no sugar involved.

It’s summertime and that means wonderful food is coming out of everyone’s gardens. Well everyone’s except mine. I have a black thumb. I’m amazed my herb garden is still doing well.

Luckily for me, our little city has a little market for our local farmers to come and share their bounty. Sponsored by Our Better Hometown, it’s a fun way to get our local produce and chat with neighbors.

Right now, we can get Yellow Squash, Cucumbers, tomatoes, Corn and if I get there early enough, new potatoes. There’s a vendor for peaches and one that makes Salsa.  Fresh eggs and local honey.

I’m a little partial to our market

Tailgate Market

I started it back in 2004, when my babies were still babies.  Our local farmers and backyard growers are some of the best people I know.  So I’m happy to be able to support them.

I have to tell you, for a kid who hated vegetables (except corn) I’ve turned into a grown up that loves them. Especially Zucchini.

Put it in a casserole, add it to cake and muffins, saute it. But the absolute best way to have it is Fried.

  2. LOL, Joan, I always say I have the black thumb of death!!

  4. Mmmmm…… fried zucchini dipped in ranch dressing. Yum! I am going to have to try this one. I have a fried zucchini recipe that calls for a batter – it’s good (fried zucchini is never bad ;) ), but sometimes a bit greasy. And the batter doesn’t always stay on. I can’t wait to try your version. Thanks for much!

  6. You know, I hate frying food but love eating it. Zucchini is definitely something I cannot get enough of. Maybe if I have some hot oil already going, I’ll fry some up!

  7. Yum. This looks so good. We’ve had good luck growing zucchini. My grandpa was always giving away extra, too. On the seed packet it says, “Feed the neighborhood!” It’s so versatile and plentiful. Mmmm. Have a lovely day!
