Zucchini Season

It is time to harvest that green long neck squash...zucchini.  I like to pick while the squash is still young small and tender NOT the mammoth size I see people pick.

Today I made a delicious Zucchini Bisque
Here is the recipe:

4c. chicken stock
1 med. white onion (I picked mine from the garden.) Chopped
2 cloves garlic minced
1/2 c. butter
4 small-med zucchini's chopped
3 med potato's peeled and diced
1/3 c. chopped herbs, I added these from my garden: parsley, chives, oregano. 
(add ones that you like.)
2/3 c. half & half

Simmer butter and onions, garlic until translucent.
Add chicken broth 
Simmer for 5 mins.
Add chopped zucchini potato's and herbs

Cook on med heat for 20 mins. cover pan.

Cool for two hours

Pour into blender(you might have to add 1/2 of mixture at a time.)

Pour into pan add half & half
Stir and simmer for 10 mins.

Looks so good. Zucchini is one of my favorite things about having a garden in the summer. That tomato side dish looks yummy... I want the recipe for that! Is it a Cabrisi salad? I can't tell what the white stuff is in the middle.
