Default Zucchini?

Our produce basket this week came with 10 large zucchinis. I'm not really a zucchini person and am having trouble finding ways to use these.

What are some of your favorite ways to use zucchinis?

If they are large, the only good use I have found for them is bread. Once they get to a certain size, they are tough and the seeds are just to big to handle. I prefer to use the small ones for most things.

I slice them into sticks and the kids and I eat them raw. I also make zucchini breads/muffins, zucchini "pizza" (slice in half lengthwise, top with tomato sauce, mozzarella, and Hormel's mini-pepperonis and bake or broil), "zoodles" and there's a recipe I make with ground beef, tortellini, spaghetti sauce and zucchini that's pretty good.

My husband grows zucchini in his garden and when it starts coming so fast I can use it all, I shred some up in the food processor (not too much - just to the point where it looks grated), throw it in a Ziplock bag in one or two cup increments and freeze it. That way, I can make zucchini bread all winter. If you can't use yours up fast enough, you might want to try that.

Just saw this recipe for Glazed Lemon Zucchini Bread that looks good. I may have to try making it sometime this summer: http://www.stonegableblog.com/glazed...ucchini-bread/
