Gracie is going to Farm Camp this week. (I wonder if our little family seems podunky to readers of this blog who don't know us.) She's having a blast! Today when Jason picked her up she was picking up chickens. How cool is that? Sure, in the past I've thought it would be cool to raise chickens for eggs, but I'd never confronted the reality of having to pick them up without being pecked. The truth is, I'd be freaked out to pick up a chicken, but Grace was loving it! She also picked weeds, watered vegetables, and brought home two squashes for dinner: one big yellow one and one big green one (a zucchini).
We scooped out the inside of the big yellow squash, stuffed it--we seem to be on a stuffed veggie kick lately, don't we?--with sautéed onions, Spanish chorizo, roasted red pepper, corn, green onions, cilantro, olives and cheddar cheese. Then we baked it at 350º for about an hour and served it with tortilla chips. Beans would have been good too, but we didn't have any.
And since the oven was on, we used the zucchini to make two loaves of Zucchini Bread.
