Came and went.. and then more came and went..I made some gratins..and....I had seen a lovely pie in a crust made with spiraled zucchini..I love spiraled zucchini..ribboned zucchini and grilled zucchini.
I decided to make a light lunch of my zucchini by marrying it w/ a green zucchini from my DSIL.
I used a small spring form pan.. 4 inches..
I ribboned the zucchinis,then spiraled them and tucked the little "cake" into the Pam'd pan.
I drizzled olive oil..thyme and sprinkled some crushed garlic on top..s and p.
Baked at 350 degrees for 1 hr.
It was just right,not crispy crunchy though..just right for me.Bake less long if you prefer a crunch to your little veggie dish.
No crust.. just good vegetables.:)
You could add some cheese etc..
I just wanted a veggie fix:)
My vegetables are almost non existant this year.. drought..animals coming to the banquet before me..:(
But one little garden i loved..is the children's garden at my Lucas' school..It was planted before yr end.. in June.. in back of his school and it is flourishing!
It's so charming w/ their little handmade signs..and their scarecrow?
She has a floral necklace now!:)
The zucchini has started to grow up and around her~:)
Speaking of inspiration~
Jacques and I really enjoy Anthony Bourdain's ..The Layover.
I have only read 2 of his books..
But have watched his Travel Shows:) The Layover may be my favorite..
I can't say I would pick his places to eat:) But I love seeing the places he visits..his humor..the people he meets..
The last one we watched was London~
Fergus Henderson was the hotelier chef that inspired me.
I knew I loved his kind face..and I knew there was something special about his charisma..
I Googled him today..And sure enough..his magnetism..is magical.
Both Anthony Bourdain and Fergus Henderson made that show unforgettable to me..:) Oh..and Mr.Bourdain's cabbie at the end:)
Like the other 2..unadulterated..charm.
Un coup de coeur~
Ou..3 coups de coeur:)
