My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Grilled Zucchini

Doing a short post today because the one on Monday is a killer. Can I get this recipe any easier! This is beyond wonderful. My picky nephew even loves these, only because he didn't know it was zucchini.

Grilled Zucchini
Serves 6
Even I can remember this recipe

2 large zucchini
1-16 ounce bottle Italian dressing

Preheat grill for high heat when ready to grill. Slice the zucchini into 1/2-inch rounds. Place in large bowl and cover with the dressing. Stir to coat, cover and refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours. Lightly oil the grate and place zucchini on the grill. Cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side, or until done.

Cooks Note: I really like to slice my zucchini into 1/2-inch strips lengthwise. No chance of falling through the grate. Your zucchini hating friends will think it's something else.
