Zucchini 3 Ways

I wished I had taken a picture of the zucchini that a friend at church gave to me out of her garden! The sucker was huge!! I got 3 dishes out of it!!  I had briefly read a recipe for Zucchini Bake over at Six Sisters Stuff and thought it sounded had cheese and anything with cheese sounds good to me!  And so sharing my version of Zucchini Bake was an afterthought and I snapped a photo with my phone before putting the leftovers up!!

Here's what I did:
Sliced zucchini
sliced cheese and shredded Parmesan cheese (these are what I had!)
small onion
dried oregano
dried basil
salt and pepper

I layered a squared baking dish with zucchini, sliced cheese, butter, onion and the seasonings and then topped it with the Parmesan cheese.  Baked at 350 for 30 minutes. I was very pleased with how yummy this was!! Hunkie thought it was good but I noticed he didn't want anything to do with the leftovers!  Hhmmm....
And of course my Lil' Hunkie, the picky eater wanted non of it!  At least I thoroughly enjoyed it!! 
Next, a couple of nights later and cut some up into 'fries' and had zucchini fries.  That's the first time I had ever done it fry style and again, yumminess!  (I did put Head Country seasoning in my flour which I think helped them be good!)
And finally this evening I made my first ever zucchini bread!  I know! I know! Where have I been right? I simply used my Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook recipe and added raisins.  Unfortunately my pan that I used should have been bigger because the middle didn't want to bake through so I had to bake it about 20 minutes extra which made it a little dry, still tasted good, but dry.
So excited that I got all of that out of one zucchini!!!
I'd love to hear whatcha been doin' with yours?

Happy Monday!!
