Zucchini Is The New Kale ?

Wait long enough and everything recycles in one way or another .

I guess over the years, I have become more aware of food fads and or trends because the husband and I watch the Food Network, get the magazine and...shhhh....I have a shit load of pins/boards on Pinterest.

Quinoa, Sirracha, Kale...and now ( again  ) zucchini.

You can't throw a rock, swing a cat ( calm's a saying , that 's all ) or fart nowadays without seeing some zucchini variation.

No , I am not talking about just the quick bread recipes that everyones mother , mine included had in the 1970's.

Chocolate zucchini cake...casserole........stir fry......slow cooker.....with pasta...with chicken....this is's ALIVE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And don't get me started on Iceberg lettuce salads. That's the only kind of lettuce my mother bought because it was cheap and carried at the commisary.

Anyhoo, I guess I noticed all of this in a state of boredom at the office that required me to either play with Pinterest or take a work....pinterest for the win then.

Now mind you , I have boards dedicated to Bacon, Chocolate, Bundt cakes etc...and that's when I noticed the lil veggie breeders.

I wonder what the big thing for 2016 will be....saltines ?

And  for the record...all ya'll can have all the zucchini your lil heart desires..I am genuinely allergic to it .

Happy almost Friday Eve.
