Laura is such a pain. Constant nagging and begging for recipes. "Please tell me how to cook such and such", "Do you have a recipe for zucchini?"

As if.

Hey Laura, it is August, we all have zucchini coming out of our asses.

Fire up the google search and get to work.

Well, alright, I'll take pity on you. Today.

Here is a good zucchini recipe.

As is my custom, I don't follow too many recipes. This is my adaptation of one I read somewhere.

Stuffed zucchini

Slice zucchini lengthwise and scoop out the seeds and discard. The scoop out some of the meat to make a boat, reserving scooped squash. Season the inside of the zucchini boats with salt and pepper. (you better grind it fresh and use only kosher or sea salt. Chop squash.

Heat a saute pan and add some olive oil (okay, I don't know how much, just use your judgment). Add some chopped onion and a clove or two of chopped garlic.

Remove casings from 2 or 3 italian sausages and put in a bowl. Mix in the onion, some breadcrumbs, preferably not the nasty kind in a can. Crumble up some nice day old french bread. Add some parmesan (again, if you use the kind in a can you shouldn't even try to cook any of my recipes. You're too dumb to live) Throw in a handful of chopped parsley or thyme or whatever is growing out in your herb garden and the reserved chopped zucchini. Add a generous amount of kosher salt and pepper. Mix it all up with your bare hands and stuff it into those squash. Dot with obscene amounts of butter, at least half a stick. If you use margarine, get off my blog right now and go look at a cooking site dedicated to trailer park cuisine. Cover with foil and Bake in a 350 oven for an hour. Alternately, cook on low or indirect heat on the bbq until the sausage is cooked through and the squash is tender.

Hmm, maybe I'll go out and get some zucchini....

Oh June, this post begs REVENGE.

To think YOU would tarnish my spotless Fisher Price-Village reputation like that by calling me trailer trash. In so many words.

Next time you need a Stand-In Drunk at a grill party?

Next time you need your basement cleaned?

Next time you need a BFF to lean on? OMG! FORgetaboutit. : >

And don't forget your blogging career would be non-existent with out my multitude of talents in the technical arena. So there.

BTW: What is Italian sausage?

I think that this recipe should be called the "Telling Laura to Stuff it" zucchini recipe.

And as far as trailer trash goes, June you really ought to give Laura your recipe for Orange jello and cool whip. (I am Not kidding, June really makes it and then insists that I am being a food snob because I think it is so gross - and it is. I mean who the hell mixes something as scared as orange jello with cool whip?

Well, just to clarify, the commentary within the recipe are not directed at Laura, but to anyone in general who would stoop to do such idiotic things as use margarine. I have no knowledge direct or indirect of Laura having done any of the things I warn against.

As for orange jello whip, it is a sacred family recipe from my mother, and not trashy at all. After all, if my mother makes it, it must be good.
