Recipe Ideas

So have been given a bunch of fruit and veggies that were grown in our pastors yard. I have so many I am afraid some things might go bad.

We have lemons
(which I usually turn into lemonade, but I was looking for another idea)


Oranges (also often becomes juice).
I also have a ton of peaches, which are absolutely amazing. I stopped buying peaches in the store because everytime I bought them they were dry and chalky. But since I know where these are grown and they were just picked off the tree on Tuesday, they are wonderful.

So if you have any recipe ideas let me know. I seem to be out of creative ideas for food right now.

You can juice some of the lemons and oranges and freeze the juice to be used later on in recipes...lemon squares, lemon meringue pie, lemon cake/cupcakes. Orange juice cake/cupcakes, orange chicken. Freeze some of the juice in ice cube trays for drinks.

You can freeze shredded zucchini for later use and zucchini bread, yum!

Thanks Donna. I actually made a zucchini cake earlier today and with the leftover zucchini I shredded it and hoped it would freeze well. Glad to know it will freeze!
