I was excited until they arrive and I actually cooked one for myself. Sometimes happy childhood memories should just stay memories, not meant to be relived.
I do not have cravings just for "boxed foods" from my youth, I have craving for things we grew as well. I lived in the mid-west and when we grew things they GREW! We often had a lot of zucchini. The problem was not that there was a lot of zucchini, it was each zucchini was a lot!
Even though we found very inventive ways to use our zucchini, it got to be that you started wishing for zucchini season to end, as zucchini found it's way into many many dishes. Not all of them enjoyable!
Driving outside of town in a rural area I spotted a bumper sticker and it read;
"It's Zucchini Season - keep your windows rolled up!"
