A simple snack from a summer surplus ...

If you have a vegetable garden you'll understand. If you have a vegetable garden and grow zucchini, you'll very much understand! These summertime veggies can take on a life of their own and take over your vegetable patch! Some people like them raw. My mother slices them and tosses them into her salad. I have to eat my zucchini cooked, preferably grilled. 

A few weeks ago I had Parmesan zucchini fries at one of my favorite restaurants. I wanted to create something like that but healthier. I wanted a Parmesan zucchini fried that wasn't fried. I figured I could easily try to create something similar on my grill pan. And I did. These were simple, delicious and best of all, for me, healthy for the kids and low carb for me!

1 large zucchini
2-3 tbs olive oil
Parmesan for sprinkling

Slice your zucchini as uniformly as possibly
Rub a very light amount of olive oil on them - enough to prevent from sticking
Place on hot griddle or pan
Sprinkle Parmesan on the side facing up, after a few minutes flip over so that the Parmesan can brown.
Sprinkle Parmesan on the other side, and repeat until both sides are the color you desire. 
(About 3 minutes per side depending on thickness)
Place on paper towel to drain
Serve on a pretty plate

If making for dinner figure 1 large zucchini for 4 people.

This looks really good. It reminds me of a dish I used to get at a local restaurant - I think they just called fried zucchini. But you're right - I don't think it was too healthy. Your version looks healthier. Thanks for sharing.

according to Zoom, its traffic is up 3,000% since December — Zoom unexpectedly joined Google, Kleenex and Band-Aid in the hallowed branding pantheon of proprietary eponyms. "You free to Zoom?" a phrase that would have been incomprehensible to the vast majority of us a couple of months ago, became an invitation

And during an unprecedented spike in traffic, Zoom's cloud network, built on AWS and Oracle, scaled up to meet the crushing demand.

Yuan's obsessions — his focus on video, on ease-of-use, on building scalable architecture — all paid off, and amid a cratering global market, Zoom's stock surged over 200%.
