zucchiniThe best time to buy fresh produce is when it is in season. That’s when you can find it at the lowest price of the year. Wait too long, and it will go out of season again (and the price will go up). Zucchini is one of the many lovely vegetables that goes in season during the month of May. Here are some recipes that feature zucchini.

Zucchini Bread
Food Network has a zucchini bread recipe that was created by Paula Dean. This recipe will yield two loves of zucchini bread. You will need:

All-purpose flour, salt, ground nutmeg, baking soda, ground cinnamon, sugar, vegetable oil, four beaten eggs, water lemon juice, chopped nuts, and 2 cups of grated zucchini.

Those of you who know how to bake bread will find this recipe incredibly easy. Further details are on the Food Network website. You can make the zucchini bread in 2 standard loaf pans or in 5 mini loaf pans.

Zucchini Oven Chips
Cooking Light has a recipe for zucchini oven chips (that appears on the My Recipes website). This one is incredibly easy to make and will produce 4 servings. You will need:

Breadcrumbs, grated fresh Parmesan cheese, seasoned salt, garlic powder, freshly ground black pepper, some fat-free milk, and 2 and a half cups of zucchini slices. They recommend you cut the zucchini into ¼ inch slices. You will also need some cooking spray.

You will end up with breaded, oven-fried, zucchini chips that taste as though they had been fried. They are a healthier substitute for french fries or potato chips. They make a good treat, snack, or perhaps even a side dish.

Stuffed Zucchini
AllRecipes has a recipe that features zucchini. This one is definitely a main course. The recipe makes four servings. You will need:

3 zucchini, pork sausage, breadcrumbs, minced garlic, a jar of spaghetti sauce, some grated Parmesan cheese and some shredded mozzarella cheese.

Cut the zucchini in half lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds. Brown the sausage. In a bowl, mix the seeds with the sausage, garlic, breadcrumbs, and Parmesan cheese. Stuff the zucchini with that mixture. Put it into the oven and pour some spaghetti sauce over it. This recipe is a nice alternative to pasta.

Other ideas
Slices of cooked zucchini make a nice addition to your “regular” pasta recipe. People who enjoy drinking their vegetables in the form of juicing can add some fresh zucchini to a mixture of carrots and apples.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
