At work, people will bring in “extra” items from their gardens and leave them on the table in the lounge for anyone who wants them. I have been hoping for some zucchini all summer, and today was my lucky day! Look at this monster!!


This is the largest zucchini I have ever seen! I put my regular sized pen in front of it for size comparrison. I am thinking about slicing a few pieces off, marinating them in balsamic vinegar and grilling them for sandwiches. The rest will probably get shredded and either frozen or made into a yummy baked item. Do you have a favorite zucchini recipe? I love zucchini bread and zucchini cake with cream cheese frosting….but neither of those are very healthy!

    HA!! That thing is huge!!! I am also shocked by how big some produce is. I saw portabello mushrooms the other day that I swear I could have tossed on head and worn as a hat – they were unreal!

    And I like to either grill my zucchinis or roast them in the oven

I'm Becci, a twenty something from a small farming community in Michigan. I grew up on a farm and still live on one...I can't imagine it any other way! Although, I do love to travel and see the amazing places the world has to offer! I have always struggled with my weight and living a healthy lifestyle, but that's about to change! This is my journey to eating healthy, traveling, and hopefully accomplishing my goal of running a marathon all while enjoying the country life!
