Square foot garden


This is our third year of our square foot garden. It's a fun thing to do with the kids. Teaching them where food comes from. They think it's pretty much akin to magic when they see it grows from a seed and doesn't come from a box.


So this year, we planted a couple of zucchini. I don't eat zucchini. I was born a finicky, picky eater. You know, like those weird people on that TLC show Freacky Eaters that only eat potatoes. It's only been a couple of years that I started eating lasagna (before this, it kind of struck me like vomit) and most recently, I've learned to eat oatmeal. Yes, oatmeal. This took several tries as I couldn't get over the slimy texture at first. I'm still not that fond of water. Enough of my weird eating habits. I could go on and on. The point is, I don't want my kids to turn out this way, so I try my best to introduce them to healthy foods. OK, and in this case ... chocolate.

Anyway, now the zucchinis are really, really big (apparently you're not supposed to let them get this big) and I need to figure out what to do with them. Here's one of my first attempts using an internet recipe, Chocolate Zucchini Bread found here [NotesFromMyFoodDiary.com]. Success. Warning: this is REALLY chocolate-y.
