Happy Zucchini Day!

Did you know that today was a holiday? Maybe not a get-off-work holiday but special nonetheless. August 8 is "Leave Some Zucchini on Your Neighbor's Porch Day." My yard is small and my thumb is black so I won't be a leaver but hopefully I'll be a leavee. If so, I'll make some of these, my favorite enchiladas ever. Zucchini Enchiladas 6 corn tortillas 1 cup oil 1/2 cup chopped onion 1 cup zucchini, grated coarsely 1 cup Monterey Jack cheese, grated 1 can (10 oz.) enchilada sauce Heat the oil and fry the tortillas for just a few seconds, until soft. Drain them on a plate lined with paper towels. Pour about 1/3 of the can of enchilada sauce to cover the bottom of an 8x8 square baking pan. Lay out a tortilla and put some cheese, onion, and zucchini down the center. Roll it up and place seam side down in the pan. Repeat with the other tortillas, then pour the rest of the sauce over the top and make sure all the tortillas get some sauce on them so they don't dry out. Sprinkle with more cheese and bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes, until hot and the cheese is melted. If this year's Zucchini Day just snuck up on you and you'd like to plan better next year, here's some garden inspiration from our talented CCCOE team:
