Here we go again with that zucchini

MADISON COUNTY — I hate to write again about a subject I just wrote about, but some friends have sent me some really good recipes for this item, and I know that we have a lot of it coming out of the garden.

ZUCCHINI CORNBREAD CASSROLE

INGREDIENTS:

4 cups shredded zucchini

1 onion chopped

2 eggs beaten

1 (8.5oz)package dry corn muffin mix (I like Jiffy)

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp ground black pepper

8 oz low fat Cheddar cheese, shredded

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a two-quart casserole.

In a large bowl, mix together the zucchini, onion, eggs, muffin mix, salt and cheese. Spread this mixture into a greased two-quart casserole dish; top with cheese.

Bake in a preheated oven for 60 minutes. Makes 8 servings.

Speaking of friends, I recently went to go to a reunion of retired school food service employees and supervisors. It was so good seeing old friends and making new ones. We plan on meeting once or twice a year.

We were all sitting around telling on each other now that we are retired and can’t get fired for some of the practical jokes we all pulled on each other.

Would I do such a thing? You bet I did my part.

One that backfired on me had to do with a state car. I had gone to a state park to stay a week while I was reviewing a school system down in western Kentucky. At that time in life, state cars all used the same key. So one of my so called friends had moved my car and replaced it with someone’s who was staying at the park. All his clothes were in the trunk. Of course, I did not check the truck as I had left early that morning. When I got back and went to put my suit case in the room, I found men’s clothes. It was a shock. I did not have anything to wear for two days until the person who took my car discovered he had my clothes.

    I love this time of the year because eggs really do go down in price during the Easter season. I have some new recipes on how to fix eggs besides the coloring part.

    Who knew the Easter bunny could fly?

    Skeptics can come to the Easter Eggstravaganza in Richmond’s Irvine-McDowell Park on Saturday to see for themselves. However, the bunny still doesn’t fly in bad weather. But on Monday, temperatures in the 60s with partly cloudy skies were predicted for Saturday.
