I've always been kind of indifferent toward zucchini, except that I really like it sauteed with tomatoes. (and I'm the only one in the family who likes it that way)
And then this summer, everybody seems to have had a bumper crop of zucchini, so what the heck do I do with it all?
Well, I made a lovely chocolate chip-zucchini cake, and that was awesome, but I got sick of shredding zucchini. (For those who cannot imagine why on earth I would get sick of shredding zucchini, try it sometime) I've made zucchini pizzas, and those are fine, too, but I've always wanted to try my hand at making zucchini boats.
I made a practice run of said boats yesterday (because, dude, ya'll, we have a LOT of zucchini) and when I called Gabe at work to let him know that's what he'd have for dinner, he asked "Is there going to be meat on those zucchini boats?"
Yes. There's meat.
And they are delicious, and he loves them. (It's why they're GABE'S favorite zucchini boats, after all)
