My Aunt Alma was a great cook and she followed Julia Child- I just recently listened to a book-on-tape about Julia and the background of writing her book, Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Quite Interesting!
BTW- do you know how to grow a baseball bat? Just leave your zucchini alone for a couple of days, and you can pick one right in your back yard!
Here's some fun pictures of a huge zucchini I found at http://growingchefs.blogspot.com/2007/08/worlds-largest-zucchini.html
Thanks for these fun pictures, Annie!
Oh yes...we fed our monster zucchini to the horse...
