Veggies everywhere!

I love the idea of the Farmers' Market. Tons of fresh vegetables and fruit for relatively cheap prices. Automatically, I start feeling healthier.

Then I get there, and unfortunately, the market here sells things in already set, fairly large quantities, instead of by the pound or the piece. That's great for a family of four. It's a little tough when it's just me -- or even me and the boyfriend. One zucchini is all I need for dinner - but I now have six.

So, like Bubba from Forrest Gump, I'm trying to figure out my options: zucchini bread, zucchini and pasta, fried, grilled...

I'll keep going back to the market, hoping the vendors will invest in scales. In the meantime, my vegetable repertoire is expanding rapidly. If anyone has any suggestions, I'm happy to hear them!

stuffed zucchini and veggie lasagna (with zucchini, mushrooms and spinach rather than meat) are two of my favorites! and you can easily size them down for just one or two people. if you're looking for new veggie recipes, check out any vegan or vegetarian websites/cookbooks. is amazing! i live on that site as i'm a dietary vegan and LOVE to cook! i do agree that cooking for one is difficult at times though. have fun!!
