It’s National Zucchini Day!

Had it not been for some lovely reminders on Twitter earlier today, I would have had no idea…and what a shame that would have been. Winking smile

I now can’t help but feel suddenly compelled to want to go make another zucchini recipe. Or maybe just repeat one of the many of shared with you all over the past couple months…

Believe it or not, I actually only have one zucchini in the house right now, thanks to my giving away three enormous ones to some friends at Jay’s softball game on Monday night. I don’t know…I think Jay might go bananas if I try to push another zucchini dish on him right now. We’ll see what happens.


Earlier this afternoon, once I had a few training plans done for the day, I took a little break for some yoga.

Today’s yoga session came courtesy of Jillian Michaels and felt great. I was feeling pretty antsy and needed to get moving, so this definitely fit the bill.

Once I finished with that, I headed out to the kitchen in search of something to eat. Oddly enough, I wasn’t super hungry but knew I needed something, so I started scrounging. First, I grabbed a handful of cherry tomatoes and just started poppin’ them like candy.


Then I eventually settled on a yogurt parfait made with the rest of my 16oz. blueberry Chobani tub + a couple spoonfuls of the vanilla chocolate chunk flavor, along with some strawberries and granola.


I enjoyed that while taking a few minutes to relax and watch The Chew, which is actually a really cool show. They always have so many delicious sounding recipes on there, and that Clinton Kelly is quite a character.


As if my yogurt tub wasn’t sweet enough already, I finished things off with the last of my zucchini brownies.


So, so sad.

But hey, at least I can say I properly celebrated the holiday now, right? Right!

Okay…time to get back to work…but mayyyybe take a quick detour towards the pool for about thirty minutes of some Vitamin D. Winking smile

    Haha, I love all the zucchini recipes you’ve made this year. Makes me happy since I think zucchini just may be my favourite vegetable!
    Looks like I’ll have to use one of your recipes today, I mean it is national zucchini day!
    My neighbour has been giving her zucchinis from her garden, but I used them all. Maybe I’ll have to go steal some today;) too far?

    I totally didn’t know today was national zucchini day! Too bad–I already have plans for another summer squash tonight. Ever heard of cucuzza squash? I hadn’t, but saw it at the grocery store yesterday. We’re going to try it out with dinner tonight, and I’m hoping to post about it tomorrow. So, I’ll have to modify and call it summer squash day. :)

    Woohoo for National Zucchini Day! I have leftovers for dinner already planned so I don’t think I’m going to be eating any today….But maybe I can make some zucchini bread tomorrow for a belated celebration 😉

      HAHAHA…I actually hate my orange toes but I’m too lazy to change the color right now! 😉

      And I really do love that yoga DVD. It’s great for when I’m feeling like I need a little something extra with the yoga because it’s a bit quicker paced. Definitely recommend :)

    Haha you are the queen of zucchini! Well since you have one in the house and you just finished the brownies? Isn’t that sort of like a God sending you an obvious message Courtney!
