Random Tuesday: Giveaway Winners and Abundant Zucchini

Giveaway Winners

Mary of Bookfan and Julie S. were the winners of The Upright Piano Player by David Abbott.

Congratulations and I hope you enjoy the book as much as I did.

Grilled Zucchini

With all the hot weather we have been having the zucchini plants in my garden have been working overtime, producing more zucchini than I know what to do with. Family, friends and neighbors are receiving the extras, freshly picked and grown organically. If you’re on the receiving end of baskets of zucchini, I have lots of recipes which I am happy to share.

When grilling dinner, create a quick side dish by tossing some slices directly on the grill. This is a favorite of mine and goes great with my chicken kabobs.

Young Zucchinis (about 6 in or 15 cm long)
Olive Oil
Garlic Pepper Seasoning


  • Cut zucchini lengthwise into slices about ¼ inch thick (½ cm).
  • Brush olive oil on both sides and season with garlic pepper.
  • Let sit for about a half hour.
  • Grill on medium-high heat turning after 3 minutes. Grill other side for another 2 to 3 minutes.


Really Random Tuesday is hosted on random Tuesdays by Suko at Suko’s Notebook. It’s a way to post odds and ends–announcements, musings, quotes–any blogging and book-related things you can think of.

    Congrats to the winners 🙂

    Our farmer’s market is full of zucchini right now, and there’s nothing I like more than grilled veggies!

    Leslie, I was out of town for this post, but will add it to my previous RRT post. The zucchini looks great!
