    I love your sleeping trick!!! Alton brown also has podcasts, those help me sleep too. Zucchini fritters are good as well, a little feta and mint and it makes you want to actually buy zucchini.

    The chicken broth story hit me square in the stomach and made me gasp-laugh.

    Maybe we should Skype in the middle of the night instead of during the day since I’m also usually awake in the night. :)

    Love the sound of the soup. I honestly wouldn’t have thought to make a pot using just zucchini, but it’s brilliant.

    I think the not sleeping thing is part of being over 40. I too am seeing too many middle of the nights in the last couple of years.

    That soup trick of yours made me laugh, as I’ve done similar before. And the not sleeping – can relate, too. My best thinking happens as I’m lurking around the house in the middle of the night – too bad my ideas don’t sound nearly as clever in the morning!

    Love your simple recipes and I can’t wait to try this one. Zucchini is my go to summer veggie. I can’t get enough of it but get tired of the same variations. This is looking yummy! Your soup looks dark green in the photos. Did you peel the squash before cooking it?

    Oh no! The tragedy of the stock, what a waste. I think I would have burst into tears if it were me.

    Eyeshades and earplugs changed my life for the better, Without sleep, I’m barely human.

    losing the chicken stock hit me in the stomach, even while it made me laugh. I do things like that when I’m tried, too. :(
    The soup is a fine idea now that the temps are falling, and the rain is starting.
    I no longer have a garden :( so I’m tempted by the farmer’s markets around here. Finding a use for zucchini is just what I needed :)

    I just got caught up on this post… pouring the stock down the sink made me laugh (sorry), because it’s something my Mom did once years ago, and she’s been telling the story ever since! Traumatizing!
