National Sneak a Zucchini Onto Your Neighbor’s Porch Day!

That’s right! It’s National Sneak a Zucchini onto your Neighbor’s Porch Day! AND. If you can’t sneak one onto your neighbor’s porch, let me know, I can get you the address of MY porch!

I’ve been freezing Zucchini the last few days for fall and winter meals (and treats!). If you’ve never frozen zucchini before, it’s SUPER easy! Start by washing/cleaning your zucchinis. Then:

 

Slice  your zucchini. I’ll be using these thin slices for a Zucchini Lasagne this fall/winter. Maybe even these Zucchini Enchiladas. YUM! I can hardly wait! This Vegetable Peeler is ideal for getting thin, wide ribbon-type noodles. If you’ve never used Pampered Chef’s knives or cutters (basically anything with a blade), I’m going to warn you….They are SHARP! Don’t ask how I know this…..

You can also grate your zucchini. I’ve mentioned in a few posts now, but this Multi-Grater & Slicer might be one of my new favorites. (I should probably mention that I’m a Pampered Chef consultant and I don’t love it because I sell it, I sell it BECAUSE I LOVE it!) . Use the grated zucchini this fall/winter in this FABULOUS Low-carb Chocolate Cake Recipe (or just sneak it into soups and sauces).

Now, put your prepared zucchini into freezer bags (or a vacuum sealer is handy too!), press as flat as possible to get out as much air as you can. Label, date and freeze. When you’re ready to use your zucchini, thaw in the refrigerator the night before.

Then you’re all ready to make your favorite casserole (or whatever….). Enjoy!

Hi! I'm Lori! Welcome to my little corner of the blogging world! My hubby and I live on a small farm in Eastern Oregon with our dog, cats, chickens, horses and a mule. I work full-time as a department lead at the nursery department of a local hardware store. I'm also an Independent Pampered Chef consultant as I love to cook and bake. You'll discover I have wa-a-a-ay too many hobbies for the amount of "spare time" I have. So, I'll just keep muddling though this life.....
