Friday Faves

Hello hello and happy Friday.

This week’s fave meal was all about using up my one zucchini plant’s prolific output. I have so much squash I should actually be serving zuchs at every meal. But this one was a Med-inspired vision, complete with this zucchini side dish served alongside chicken and pork souvlaki and a scoop of my fave rice. Don’t forget the tzatziki. So frigging good.
