You know that game you used to play as a kid -- the "Johnny, Johnny, Johnny, Johnny, Oops" game. Well lately that is how I have been feeling about zucchini. I only planted one plant in a pot. Little did I know when I planted it that the hubs is not a fan. So the 3 or 4 zucchini I get, is too much for one. So, I have made zucchini bread, sauted it, put it in spaghetti. Now, my personal favorite, Calabacitas. Calabacitas, is a New Mexican dish, with any kind of squash, or zucchini, most make it with zucchini.

Super easy, chop up your zucchini, saute with a bit of butter in a pot, add onions, and garlic if you like, I added bell peppers from the garden (another thing the hubs isn't crazy about). Saute until soft, then add a can of chopped tomatoes, or fresh tomatoes with juice from your garden, throw in a bit of corn. Simmer down, and yum. I did add some green chilies to mine because I like the spice.

Best thing about this, is you can top with cheese or not, serve with any kind of protein, or just stir your protein on in.

So now how does that game go? Zucchini, Zucchini, Zucchini, Zucchini, Oops, Zucchini.......
