Monochrome

Hello,  Thankfully the zucchini season is coming to an end.  We have had a very good season and have had zucchinis coming out our ears.  I have shared them with friends, family, neighbours and every one at work.  Out of desperation I have found lots of new recipes.  One of my favourite finds is Clotilde Dusoulier's Chocolate Zucchini Cake recipe. This is a beautifully moist chocolate cake.  Clotilde is a French food writer based in Paris.  Clotilde had a great anecdote about zuchinnis which I which I thought was very funny.   "An American friend once explained to me that nobody ever locks their car in her small town… except when it’s zucchini season. Leave your door unlocked then, and you risk coming back to find a crate of zucchini left on your passenger seat."  Perhaps I could try this tactic next year.

( A dad joke for you - What is black and white and red all over?
Answer - An embarrased zebra)

Image - A Day for Daisies
Sentiment - Computer generated
Colouring - Copics

Todays card is for the challenge at Less is More - Monochrome.

That is all for today.  Thanks for dropping by.

  3. Fabulous card Skye. I have always hated Zucchini until a friend made a zucchini cake and I loved it. I will have to suggest to her to make a chocolate one next....Loz
