Congratulations, Jess, who submitted the following comment:
As a college student with little to no experience in cooking, there is no way I’m passing this beautiful project by. I have a lot of problems with vegetables, but specifically I’m interested in zucchini. It seems to have potential, but I’m stumped as how to cook it.
Oh, Jess. You should see the look of horror on my husband’s face right now. Next to school buses (tell you that story another time, maybe), zucchini might be his most dreaded enemy!
But no matter! I love it, and I will do my best to show you some things to do with it next week. Even if that means I will be eating the results myself! (Jess, please leave me a comment with any special dietary parameters you have for this experiment.)
So, goodbye, kale, hello zucchini!
Which concludes this first week of Food You Don’t Know What to Do With! I really enjoyed myself–the cooking, the thinking about you all, the writing–but now I want to know what you think. Going forward, I imagine a format similar to the one you just saw, wherein I post two recipes a week, plus a selection of links and maybe one other post related or tangentially related to the ingredient at hand. On Friday of every week, I will pull another name from the comment bowl to determine the following week’s ingredient. So far all of the comments happened after the initial post, but if you would like to throw your hat into the ring at any time, feel free to comment on any post in the series and I will be sure to include you.
How does that sound to everyone?
Thanks again, to everyone who has participated! Please keep commenting and sharing as you see fit. xoxo
