Zucchini Days...... =)

Patients and co-workers have been bringing in the fruits of their gardens these past couple of weeks and we have been eating it up!! The cucumbers have been fabulous and now the zucchini have been coming in abundantly!! =) We have even sliced up a few tomatoes, radishes and cukes and get out the spicy ranch for our snacks through the day at work. We were invited out to friends for supper, so I offered to bring some 'crisp' for dessert!! =) hehe I did sneak a bit for Michael and I to try to see if it would pass. Tastes just like apple crisp!! =) I'll grill some next, but have to watch the peeling cuz cute farmer can't have tons of green stuff.... =)

Zucchini "Apple" Crisp

8 cups pealed sliced zucchini (seeds removed and sliced like apple slices)
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon

Mix together and pour into 9x13 baking dish.

Topping:

1 cup softened butter
1 ½ cups brown sugar
1 ½ cups oatmeal
1 ½ cup flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda

Combine until crumbly and sprinkle over zucchini mixture. Bake at 350° for 50 - 60 minutes or until topping is golden brown and juices are bubbly around edges.

My guys like it topped with ice cream. (My 'crisps' are heavy on the 'crisp' =)

I'm actually wishing someone would do this for me as our plant got chewed up by some sort of bug. :(
