Creative Courgettes

According to Wikipedia, Courgette is French for Zucchini!

A friend recently gave me a large Zucc – 11 inches in length:

the real zucc

I hope to make Gluten-Free Zucchini bread with it.   🙂

It got me thinking about how versatile this vegetable is – so I created a poem to go with some Zucchini inspired art:

Zucchini Bread                                                                                                          Cookies and cake                                                                                                                  Is there anything –                                                                                                           This veggie cannot make?

Pizza and noodles                                                                                                      Omelets galore                                                                                                                  This vegetable is never                                                                                                      Ever a bore!

A stir fry perhaps?                                                                                                            Maybe a Quiche?                                                                                                                It’s versatile uses  –                                                                                                               Are very unique!

It shreds, it fries –                                                                                                         Chops and it blends                                                                                                             It seems to me,                                                                                                                   It’s bounty never ends!
