Zucchini Boat

I guess you could call this my Pinterest Challenge, part two.

Pinning dream DIYs and not following through seems to be common, although all the completed challenges linked to the bottom of YoungHouseLove.com and BowerPower.com, etc. yesterday, show how with a little inspiration, projects can get completed. I was so excited to see how many people tackled projects!

Well, I’m going to actually try to tackle some recipes I’ve been pinning. Cooking is almost easier than DIYing because, well this is me as an example, while a coat of paint dries it’s easier to wander off and forget about your project. Cooking something on the stove or leaving the oven on would, I hope, demand a little more attention. So, yesterday I took one of the three giant (over 12 inches) zucchinis given to me by my Mother in Law and made these zucchini boats.

Actually, I didn’t follow any recipe. The only thing I did that I saw on Pinterest was make the boats themselves. Whatever else I put in was just my “let’s use up this produce from the fridge before it spoils” effort.

My boats. I used zucchini, tomato, green pepper, onion, black beans, tuna, creole seasoning, salt, and topped it with Swiss cheese. Next time I want more zest in it, so I’ll use more tomato (only had one on hand this time) and will definitely use more cheese–probably mix some shredded cheddar into the filling. All in all, this tasted good and was a good way to use up a lot of veggies!
