I wish I knew someone with a garden overflowing with cukes and zucchini so I could take them off their hands and have an excuse to make these.

Wish you lived nearby so I could give you our extras. Been sitting our neighbors garden so we're overwhelmed with produce. Taking some to church tomorrow to give away.

Need to blend up squash & freeze for bread this winter.
