RECIPES: Zucchini Overload
Gung-ho gardeners and overzealous green thumbs: Prepare! Aug. 8 is your chance. It’s Sneak Some Zucchini Onto Your Neighbor's Porch Night.
Pack those piles of green squash into plastic bags and brew a big pot of coffee.
Then, as night falls and neighbors switch off their lights and head to bed, sneak outside with your overflowing sacks and slip them onto porches and stoops.
If you're feeling charitable, leave a recipe or two to help recipients of your bounty make use of the loot.
Then, head home, crawl into bed, and enjoy a night of restful sleep before the green-tentacled garden monster rears its ugly zucchini-laden head again, leaving you sleepless with worry over what to do with the next crop of squash.
