Saute baby zucchini and top with delicious, toasted breadcrumbs tossed with lemon zest. It is a quick vegetable dish perfect for a weeknight.
I have been on a vegetable buying binge lately. I go to the grocery store and just cannot narrow down which ones to buy for the week. Spring is a fabulous time for vegetables. I come home with enough to feed an army. So I have been trying to think of different ways to cook them. The baby vegetables are adorable so I could not resist these cute little zucchini. All winter I roasted vegetables and I seem to be in a sauteing mood for Spring. So I decided to saute these baby zucchini and serve with some toasted bread crumbs. What a delicious side dish it made.
I am really glad Winter is over. For some reason, my diet goes down the tubes over the Winter. It probably has more to do with the food frenzy between Halloween and New Years. Then it takes me a while to get my act back together. As soon as the Spring produce starts to come out, my diet improves. I cannot wait to eat all the luscious fruit and vegetables. I start to crave salads and grilled anything. I have gone back to setting weekly weight loss goals for myself although this week was tough. My daughter was on Spring Break and it seemed like we ate out for lunch almost everyday. Next week it is back to the gym full force and serious diet planning. I need to sit down and plan my breakfast and lunches. I always plan out our dinners each week and it helps to keep me on track.
I hope you are getting inspired by all the fabulous Spring fruits and vegetables. You will be seeing a lot more!
