Zucchini & Corn Fritters



Honoring the Zucchini

It’s that time of year again when the garden begins to produce in earnest. In the midst of that magnificent bounty, I’m afraid that zucchini sometimes gets a bad rap. Stories abound about bags of squash being left in unlocked cars or on doorsteps. Nationwide, zucchini festivals feature newly crowned Zucchini Queens and Kings and games of zucchini toss. I’ve even seen tongue-in-cheek recipes for what to do with this prolific squash like Zucchini Stuffed with Girl Scout cookies!

Salad Days

linguini salad ala ally

curried rice salad

My dad used to refer to my high school and college years as my “salad days.” At the time, I didn’t have a clue what he was talking about, not realizing that the phrase came from Shakespeare’s play, Antony and Cleopatra. I thought my father was referring to my obsession with eating salad, a regular pattern that started in those years and continues to this day. So much for high school Brit Lit where I should have learned the reference to mean the inexperience and idealism that accompanies youth.
