This Is What Happens…

When a green zucchini grows under a large green zucchini leaf and so you don’t see it for, oh, maybe a month.

It weighs almost 3 pounds.  That actually didn’t sound like that much to me at first, but next time you buy a zucchini , see how much it weighs…usually half a pound or less.  So this one is the size of at least six normal zucchinis.  Um, yea.  It is really kind of frightening.   BK said I couldn’t keep it where he could see it because he would have nightmares (he’s probably shocked and appalled and quickly closing the window to this post as we speak).

One of my favorite books, “The $64 Tomato,” refers to “baseball bat-sized zucchini.”  Now I get it.

The Pierogi Mom is visiting soon and I forsee lots of grilled zucchini and disappearing zucchini orzo in her future.  I’m going to need some help here.
