I will be back for the beef and zucchini taco recipe! My one zucchini plant is pumping out zukes faster than we can eat them.

Good choice on the End of Summer Harvest Soup! I made it last Tuesday it was AMAZING! My husband isn’t a big squash/zucc fan but he loved it too. And the leftovers just get better and better! Don’t forget the sprinkle of parmesan–that just makes it!

I’ll be checking back for the coconut rice and beans. I’m a sucker for anything with coconut in it. :)
