We all know that summer leads gardeners to a bounty of zucchini and squash. OK, well maybe we ALL don’t know that, but growing up with a large garden at my house, I can remember literally forcing zucchini on our 90 year old neighbors just so we could get rid of it we had so much. Then they would make us zucchini bread, and I was the only one of my sisters who would eat it because I just loved to be fat, and would legit eat anything at anytime if it was offered. Call me the chubby kid who never grew up. Zucchini bread is a revelation, and if I had the patience to bake, my freezer would be stocked with it.
Anyway, this is a short one because I am posting from work (tsk tsk, but it’s a slow day…). This recipe is super simple, and I actually made it a while ago and just never posted it. I do not have step by step photos because sometimes that is just too much to handle.
This was a test experiment that came out delicious, so I’ll give you a brief run down of ingredients. Adjust them as you see fit.
I used jalapeno chicken sausage that I ground up in the food processor with bread crumbs, mushrooms, cilantro, some cayenne pepper and parmesean cheese.
More like Candace is Thirsty! First, no one drinks mint juleps that isn’t a) from Kentucky b) at the kentucky derby or c) a 50 year old man, but here at Candace is Hungry, we never turn down a good bourbon drink.
Lets rewind a little shall we. When I was growing up my parents had a pimp ass garden growing all kinds of things. MINT was one of them. Mint, if you do not know, is an invasive plant and now grows literally on every acre of my parents property at home.
I didn’t realize how lucky I was to grow up with a garden until I was older, and not being forced to pick green beans while getting murdered by mosquitos, or take out the compost, or being yelled at for not composting something, but that is besides the point. I have vivid memories of mint leaves from the garden (that I most likely picked) steeping in bourbon on the counter for a week before the Kentucky Derby. My dad was a big fan. I was 8, so I didn’t realize what I was missing out on, UNTIL NOW!!!
