Fried Zucchini

May I please state that zucchini, heretofore rejected and thoroughly snubbed by myself, has now been adopted into the family of "Emily's Favourite Vegetables," right up there with broccoli and asparagus. Thanks to the magic of fried zucchini. Oh man oh man. Take the zucchini - slice it thinly. Melt some butter in a skillet. Throw in the zucchini, stir it around and start to cook it down, then give it a generous dash or three of soya sauce. Then COOK that zucchini, my friend! Cook it until it is limp, submissive, and almost falling apart. (I realize this not be the MOST health-concious way to eat this veg, but you have to give me some credit for eating it in the first place, right?) Then pile a big ol', huge ol' mound of it on your plate and stuff your face. Then do it again.

This is actually one of my new favourite treats. I like to have a treat while Cory's got men's Bible study going on and I'm banished to the bedroom, so it's usually avacado mashed up into delicious guacamole-ness, or this zucchini. It's THAT GOOD.

And who introduced me to this? My dear mother. She would make this for her and Dad sometimes while we were growing up, and never offered to share. Not that I would have accepted if she HAD offered, in fact I would have turned up my nose and gagged, but when she made this for me when staying with me the week after Eli was born I devoured it. In large quantities. And now I can't get enough of it.

But, like almost everything else in my life, this is probably just a phase. A few months from now and I'll be RAVING over some other delicious treat that I've discovered. I'm just like that. Non-commital. Thank heavens I can't escape from my marriage, or from being a mother, because knowing my sinful self I probably would try to, if it weren't for the grace of God.

Praise God for his grace in my life! And also for fried zucchini.
