In addition to being a brilliant student, a handy homeowner, a compassionate boyfriend, a patient parental figure, a loyal friend, and an all around amazing guy, Jason also cooks. A perfect ten, I'd say!
Just when we thought that our zucchini couldn't get any bigger, we pulled three upon returning home from Rhode Island, that were approximately the size of my thigh. We gifted one to the fabulous neighbors who watered the garden while we were away, one to the neighbors who are really our family (and who know everything), and kept one. I steamed about one-third of ours with some garden string beans and onions a few nights ago and Jason made this lovely dinner with the remaining.
It was sooooo good. So good! He sliced, soaked and breaded the zucchini. Then, he spread some tomato sauce (from the co-op) on a cookie sheet, placed the zucchini on top, added some sauce and fresh chopped herbs (including PURPLE BASIL), and slices of grandpa Dan's tomatoes to each, and baked them for about 20 minutes. He finished them all off by broiling some yummy cheeses on top for a couple minutes.
Boyfriend = Awesome.
