Zucchini on The Loose

Mmm the garden is growing and I don't know if we'll be able to keep up with production. I thought I'd planted conservatively, but I should know that 3 zucchini plants is not conservative. Maybe I'll do a before and after shot, because I swear I go out one day and see a cute little baby zucchini about the size of a hot dog and the next day a giant monster zucchini closer to the size of a new roll of paper towels is sitting out there waiting for me. I also got a yellow squash so I made calabacitas.

We didn't have tortillas in the house, so I decided to make some, but we didn't have shortening either. I made tortillas with butter, which turned out more like pastries. No bend to them at all and very buttery tasting.

As if that wasn't enough kitchen craftiness I thought that I needed some homemade mozzarella to go with the fresh tomatoes and basil. So Sarah and I gave it the good ole college try. Well..... that didn't exactly work out. We ended up making something with the taste and texture of ricotta cheese. I think it had something to do with the temperature. Not sure if I'm going to try again.


  1. Oh No, loose zucchini, ahhhhHHHHHH!

    Sorry, my sister is visiting this week. Her immaturity must have rubbed off on me.

  2. I don't think I ever use shortening it tortillas, only butter. I love them that way though :)
