Hahaha… yup! That’s just what keeps happening to me too! Two more zucchini! My yellow crookneck gave up a few weeks ago, but the zucchini just keeps going and going… Our zucchini harvest has been phenomenal this year and, dare I say it, we are tired of eating zucchini! Thank you for this recipe. I think I will make a few loaves and throw them in the freezer for later this winter. I am sure we will appreciate them MUCH more then, than we would now. And yes, please share some recipes with pumpkin! I usually substitute butternut squash for pumpkin, which I think tastes better, and butternut squash grows better than pumpkin for me. Have a great weekend!

Daisy Debs,
I’m guessing your Gete-okosomin squash did well enough to give you some squash?? Glad to hear!! 🙂

I love the idea of using both carrots and zucchini, Nancy, both for flavour and also to use up my veggies! Thank you so much for sharing this lovely recipe with us at the Hearth and Soul Link Party. Shared on the Hearth and Soul Facebook page.
