If only I had a graden…sausage zucchini boats

I’m noticing a pattern here.

There are so many things that I say I want to do, that I NEED  to do…but that I never get around to doing.

I won’t bore you with a reminder of how I said I was going to lose weight.  And don’t piss me off by asking me if I’m still on my diet when at Sweet Frog.

But there are so many other things I swore I would do.

  • I’m going to write a book
  • I’m going to volunteer more
  • I’m going to get a full time job
  • I’m going to reorganize the closets
  • I’m going to fold the laundry the minute it is out of the drier
  • I’m going to be nice

SO many promises left unkept…

But one in particular kills me this time of year.  And that is my promise that I would grow a garden.

You see, while everyone was working hard starting their seeds in the spring, tilling their garden, watering their oxen, I was …well I have no idea what I was doing, but I wasn’t doing any of that.  And now all those smug farmer/gardeners are on facebook every freakin’ day showing pictures of their tomatoes, eggplant, corn, and their oxen on vacation in Bora Bora.

And what do I have?  Nada.

Nada except for extreme guilt that I am going to Harris Teeter to buy zucchini.  WHO BUYS ZUCCHINI IN AUGUST????

me.  that’s who.

while the rest of you are trying to figure out what to do with all your extra produce, I’m at the store paying organic farmers market prices so I can show you what to do with your harvest.

So don’t accuse me of doing nothing.  I’m helping the economy thank you very much.

what you need:

4 zucchini, sliced in half and seeds removed

1 pound sweet italian sausage

1 egg

1/2 cup italian bread crumbs

1/2 cup arrabiata sauce (you can use any tomato sauce, but I like the kick of arrabiata)

1 cup diced onion

3/4 cup shredded mozzarella

what to do:

preheat oven to 400

combine sausage, egg, bread crumbs, sauce and onion in a bowl

fill scooped out zucchini with the mixture

put on a baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes

remove zucchini boats, cover with mozzarella cheese and put back in oven for another 5-8 minutes, or until the cheese is melted

serve and enjoy!

    Yum! You are nice. Having a garden takes time. We cannot grow our own zucchini
