I'm still unrepentant as to why I planted so many courgette this year. For it wasn't a problem to have a glut of courgette. I easily learned how to be creative with it. We have it almost every day of the week but in so many different forms and variation of cooking:) and I froze some for the months to come when we would start missing it once again too.

With the abundance of courgette, we had them as fritters for afternoon snack, courgette fillers for crepes/spring rolls, as dips, baked with bread etc... I also use it with stew, with soup, fried tempura, countless other ways and I never get a single complain from the family, but just a smile of big contentment.

One dish that they want to have every week, if at all possible, is the courgette spaghetti. I don't have the kitchen gadget that cuts the courgette into spaghetti-like strands, but with a knife I could still do long thin strands of it. I cook it with spaghetti pasta and top up with prawns and mini tomatoes and olive oil, chopped cooked garlic plus salt and pepper. A quick, complete and very satisfying meal for every one:)
With a full tummy and a hot summer...we all feel like a short nap is to follow afterwards too. Sometimes life can be like that;P Enjoy your day too.
