Zucchini or Summer Squash Cakes!
Text and pics by Chef Joey!
Try it on mock meats and tofu, too!
One of my favorite marinades is the everything one: fresh parsley, cilantro, rosemary – even mint. Put it all in a blender, with some oil and lemon juice. It is great on chicken or fish! It is really tasty – my favorite summer dressing!💙
Lets face it – you are home and need snacks! Especially healthy ones! These “cakes” topped with a dollop of sour cream are delicious – and nutritious. And easy to make!
1 zucchini, shredded
1 cup flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup or slightly more (depending on zucchini size)
A HANDFUL OF CHOPPED MINT OR BASIL!!!!
Mix everything EXCEPT the zucchini and mint or basil. Your mix should have the consistency of a thick pancake mix (which it is … less vanilla – double recipe!)
Then add the zucchini.
In a fry pan, heat a 1/4 inch of high heat oil – like sunflower. Drop large tablespoons in the pan (don’t splash!). They will level out – and like with a pancake it will bubble.
Flip it over and cook until golden – place on a paper towel.
Then arrange on a platter and serve with a little sour cream for dipping. Enjoy!
We Need a New PIP – and the ol’ Buddy!
By Rose T.
I took these pics yesterday:
We’ve got 10, 15 homeless folks under the Green Street bridge in the Canal District every day. All summer. … Some wear facial masks – some don’t. …
Former Worcester District 4 City Councilor Barbara Haller once said she was the only “legitimate” person in the PIP/Main South neighborhood (she lives on nearby Castle Street) … And so a 10-year battle to close the PIP began. Babs and her allies, esp Billy Breault, won: Worcester’s wet shelter closed. But the social ills didn’t go away. The city is now filled with homeless camps, homeless panhandlers, homeless hot spots by railroad tracks … We have THE HIGHEST HOMELESS POPULATION IN THE STATE – 13% – and we don’t have a comprehensive homeless shelter like the PIP – which had a great support staff: nurses, social workers, a doctor/saint, a cafeteria that served two meals a day – and catered City of Worcester events – and a compassionate executive director – Buddy Brousseau. I miss Buddy.
And with all the Green Island Gentrification …
Text+pics by Rose T.
… My old Green Island streets are being repaved like never before! I mean, like never! Bigelow, Lafayette, Harding, Endicott, Washington … and with freshly painted crosswalks, too:
Capped off by a total redo of the Crompton Park basketball courts and park entrance/walkways! … They say gentrification – when not actually removing the poor people of the ‘hood – improves the cosmetics of their surroundings: We get new sidewalks, street lights, benches … curb-cuts … trees are planted:
More police presence:
But the neighborhood people are still poor, the kids are still hungry, the rents are still too high, the good factory jobs gone, opportunities squelched. So no big societal change here, folks. More glaring inequity, when you think about it.
IMPORTANT!!!! From CNN.COM:
Following the Trump administration’s decision to reroute coronavirus hospital data first to the administration, instead of sending it to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, some data is no longer available on the CDC.gov website.
