    3. Hi again,   Just wondering if anyone wants to offer a recipe or 2 which involves a veggie which comes out of your garden.     Or, which involves all the veggies available at Farmstands this month !   I'm one of those strange people who like the taste of food !    So, just give me a serving of a veggie with butter on it.     But, a great many people like to make some type of casserole with a veggie.      And, of course, there is the well-known   "Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie,"   etc.   Actually, when I turned 60, I started having a problem digesting veggies,  and I basically had to stop eating them.    It's been getting better, sort of.    I've always called it a "disagreeable digestive system."     Because of a Message Board for the  National Psoriasis Foundation,  I just found out last week it has an official name:    "Leaky Gut Syndrome."      Several people suggested I go on the "Paleo Diet" for 3 mos. and that will make me much better.     I requested 2 books from the library about it.   I haven't gotten the book describing it, yet,  but I did get the book,   "Paleo Comfort Foods."    Since you're supposed to eliminate dairy and grains for 3 mos., I thought there wasn't much else to eat.    But, over the weekend I looked at this very nice, colorful cookbook,  and I see many pictures of very nice foods.     The first one I noticed was:    Squash Casserole.    They call it yellow squash;  I call it summer squash.    The ingredients include:  onion, coconut milk, almond meal, paprika, and chopped pecans.   With my digestive system, anything with skin and seeds are the worst culprits.    For all of my life - up to Age 60 - I've always loved 90% of veggies.     And I really miss being able to make a cucumber sandwich, or eating a Greek Salad, or eating a dish of summer squash with butter.     :o(   This is almost a Gourmet cookbook, as the majority of the recipes include  coconut milk, coconut flour, or almond flour or avocado oil, etc.       I guess we would have to have lots of money with us at supermarkets for these recipes.   By the way,  I just asked on Facebook if there are ways to make Zucchini Bread, Banana Bread, or Carrot Cake,  without adding 2 cups of sugar.     Someone wrote back to say to use Brown Sugar, instead (1/3 the amount).     And, I just noticed a recipe for a bread in this book where .honey. is used.   Am I making anyone - hungry ?   Betty             (near Lowell, MA)   List Administrator

    3. Summer squash: slice in half lengthwise, scoop out seeds, fill cavity with butter and honey; or brown sugar (I use Splenda brand); or maple syrup. Bake until squash is soft. We don't eat the skin; however some of my friends do. Make your regular lasagna recipe, except instead of pasta, use thin slices of zucchini. Bake as usual.

Because of a Message Board for the National Psoriasis Foundation, I just found out last week it has an official name: "Leaky Gut Syndrome." Several people suggested I go on the "Paleo Diet" for 3 mos. and that will make me much better. I requested 2 books from the library about it. I haven't gotten the book describing it, yet, but I did get the book, "Paleo Comfort Foods." Since you're supposed to eliminate dairy and grains for 3 mos., I thought there wasn't much else to eat.

By the way, I just asked on Facebook if there are ways to make Zucchini Bread, Banana Bread, or Carrot Cake, without adding 2 cups of sugar. Someone wrote back to say to use Brown Sugar, instead (1/3 the amount). And, I just noticed a recipe for a bread in this book where .honey. is used. Am I making anyone - hungry ?

    3. Hi Betty, Two cups of sugar is a lot, but many of the recipes seem to call for that much. You could use Stevia which is a natural plant sugar replacement. Here is a recipe for zucchini bread with no sugar. I never made it, I just found it on line. http://myyearwithout.blogspot.com/2010/10/sugar-free-quick-easy-zucchini-bre ad.html It's a blog from someone who doesn't use sugar, so there are probably some other recipes there. The other day, we had roasted vegetables on the grill. Now that the tomatoes are here, we do caprese salad - sliced tomatoes, sliced mozzarella and basil. We also do another version of that with cherry tomatoes cut in half, mixed with mozzarella cut in cubes, or the fresh mozzarella that you can get in tiny balls, basil, and italian salad dressing - we use balsamic. We also make green bean salad - beans, tomatoes, onion, olives, basil or whatever seasoning you like, croutons, and italian dressing. My aunt makes a corn salad with fresh corn on the cob, cooked and taken off the cob. Mix with thinly sliced red onion, red pepper diced about the same size as the corn, tomatoes diced very small, dressed with red wine vinegar & olive oil. I only made it once or twice myself, because no one in this house likes it, but I think it's great. I finally have a garden this year, but the tomatoes are still a long way off. I should have green beans this week, and cucumbers too. We have been getting a lot of basil.
