Zucchini Situation is definitely capitalized

Um, there’s getting to be a Zucchini Situation. Gotta stay on top of that!

So last night I set two aside for Friday dinner, then shredded the rest.
Had Baked Cheesy Zucchini Bites (recipe by #melskitchencafe, recommended by Alison).

Then made Zucchini Cheddar Scones (by #bakerbynature). Scones highly recommended, though make sure you have a good sharp cheese, as it’s the primary flavor.

My recommendation? Top notch cheese. I think I’m going to make these again (once I finish what I have), then modify the recipe to be jalapeno popper-flavored. Because when I have a cheese scone in front of me with green flecks (or, in this case, yellow/green flecks), I just want it to be jalapenos. So, keep the zucchini, but add in some jalapenos and maybe some chopped/crumbled bacon. Because who doesn’t love bacon. That’s not to say I don’t recommend the original recipe just as it is – I do. It just turns out that I want my cheddar scones to be… different.

Note, this was my first time making scones from scratch. I’m a big fan of scone mixes, where I can buy them on clearance after the holidays, make up the dough, shape them onto cookie sheets and then freeze so I can make up just a few at a time. This was my first time not using a mix, and I felt quite proud of myself for having gotten it right and everything turning out as it should.  Like, ridiculously pleased with myself.

Then I ran out of steam and bagged and froze the last 8 cups.
