    Trick Or Treat! Here's Your Zucchini!

    This post sat around for 3 days.  I've just got to post it for GYSC.

    Once a month a church in north Topeka gives away food.  They have been doing it for over a year.  There are no income guidelines.  All they ask is your name and how many are in your household.  I use to work with the paster and have volunteered to help out with the giveaway before. 

    Our pantry is very sparse these days, so I went down to the church Tuesday.  The giveaway started at 9:00 am.  I got there at 9:10 am.  The line of cars was already 5 blocks long.  It took an hour and half to make it through the line and get some groceries.

    You never know what you'll get, but when you need some food it doesn't much matter.  That is, it usually doesn't matter!  I got a variety of stuff.  They loaded a box in the Pathfire and a second unopened box marked "produce".

    The box contained bread, rolls, 5 lbs of potatoes, 5 lbs of carrots, a dozen large cucumbers, a dozen zucchini, some pudding cups, and various other things.  On the way home I popped open the box of produce.  The last time I volunteered at the church, I remember them giving away pallets of blueberries.  They give away everything until it's gone.  I remember some people, towards the end, getting cases of blueberries.  I was hoping there would be some sort of fruit in in case.

    Wrong!  It was a case of, drum roll please, that's right, zucchini!  There must be at least 3 dozen in the case.  I haven't counted them.  They are packed so nice, I hate to disturb them!

    Zucchini was not something I grew in the garden this year.  Usually I have more than I need so I give them away.  Now I've got about 50 of them!  The bottom of the frig is so full of produce!

    Only two things come to mind to rid myself of all the zucchini.  First, give them away to Trick or Treaters!  But, I don't want to be cleaning up smashed zucchini from the front of my house.  My other thought is to give them to a girl at work.  She has an African tortoise that eats a lot of produce...lettuce, cabbage, and maybe zucchini!

    All I know is that I am going to have a lot of molding produce in my frig, if I don't come up with something.
