I am learning everyday with my young daughters how to a better parent, homemaker and person. I believe in respectful, gentle parenting, being good to the earth, good to yourself, others and family and instilling good values in my child.

Starting to Harvest-Zucchini Fritters Recipe
Today I noticed lots of small zucchini growing on my 2 plants. I find 2 plants given enough room to grow, produce more zucchini than we can even eat. Today I picked 3 of them for our first harvest that isn't lettuce.
I made one of the girls favorite side dishes, which Eve decided was her only dish, Zucchini Fritters.
I very simple shred the zucchini and mix it with an lightly beaten egg, some bread crumbs and parmesan cheese. If I'm making a larger amount or using larger zucchini I use more eggs.
Heat some oil in a pan.
Take the mix and make small, 3-5 bites sized, pancake shapes and place them in the hot oil.
Fry until golden brown, about 2-4 minutes.
Turn them over and repeat.
I like to drain them on a paper towel over a plate.
Yummy yummy, veggies even the pickiest eater will eat.
Can even be used as main vegetarian dish meal.
