Have you ever grown zucchini? No? Yes? I haven't. But here is what I've gathered from the gardening of such vegetables:

Firstly they are fruits, not vegetables. So are pumpkins. Please don't put any in my fruit salad.

Fry it, grill it, bake it, sautee it, dip it, stuff it. Ugh. The list goes on and on. You can do so many flippin' things. So you get the idea. Now for a gratuitous, vaguely sexual picture of a girl with zucchini. Lata chumps!

I'd take her zucchinis.

I'd love for her to give me zucchini.
