Notes from the kitchen and garden

The garden is looking good although I haven't had any ripe tomatoes yet.  Lot's of squash though!  WE have had spaghetti squash a couple times and several zucchini, a few yellow summer squash, and I'm watching the sweet dumplings with watering mouth!  Several pumpkins getting bigger in all this rain but no sign of my gourds.  The vines are growing but no fruit, yet.   The ground cherries are going to be ready soon and it looks like some of the tomatillas will have fruit soon. 

Because of the amount of zucchini we generally have, I decided to dry some.  The chips turn out very crisp and easy to chew.  They taste so good that I want to dry all kinds of veggies now!   And of course the wonderful, Chocolate Zucchini Cake that has become a tradition each year. It's not overly sweet so it is nice to have for a treat. 
Would go great with a cup of Zach's coffee!
