The odd thing about zucchini is that no matter how little you plant, you’ll somehow wind up with a bumper crop of zucchini.
I once heard a story about a little girl. It was one of those summers when everyone seemed to have an overabundance of zucchini. Her mom, like everyone else, was sneaking zucchini into whatever they could in order to use it up. One day her mom took her to a local ice cream shop. She got a scoop of tutti frutti. As her mom handed it to her, she looked at it with suspicion and asked, “Is there zucchini in here?”
If you’ve got an overabundance of zucchini, or if you’ve got friends and neighbors trying to get rid of zucchini, I’ve got some ideas for you.
One of the best ways to preserve zucchini is to freeze it. To do this, shred it, then freeze it in 1- or 2-cup containers. I like to use zippered freezer bags. I put the zucchini in, then press it flat. I can get oodles of flat zippered bags in my freezer. I usually don’t keep the seeds, but that’s completely up to you.

Piercings, tattoos, and underwear
This is from 2009. I think I could make a series of "the more things change, the more they stay the same," because I still feel the same way about piercings, tattoos, and underwear. I still don't know where to look. But I still maintain none of those things are sufficient criteria by which to judge a person. - Liz
I don’t mind piercings. I don’t love them, by any means — I nearly fainted the first time I got one. That was the first ear with a darning needle and then I had to go ahead and have the other one done. Then they were crooked and I let them grow back, vowing never to do it again. But I did, and then one more time just because I wanted to wear two sets of earrings. I’d like to do the cartilage thing, too, up in the top of one ear, but I’m too big of a chicken, so that’s not going to happen.
I don’t mind tattoos, either. Some of them are beautiful and meaningful to their wearers. I’d even kind of like to have a little shamrock tattooed somewhere not obvious, but in addition to being a big chicken, I’m also a cheapskate. I’d rather spend the money required for a tattoo on something else. Probably earrings. Maybe purses. Or shoes.
