In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, I was going to make corned beef and cabbage. But then I ate too big of a breakfast and too big of a lunch, and thus couldn’t stomach eating a big dinner (let alone cooking it). So I dug around in the fridge for something else to make. I had zucchini. Zucchini is green. And therefore festive enough for a St. Patty’s Day challenge? Zucchini sticks? I’ve never made those before. St. Patrick’s Day crisis averted.

The recipe: I used a version of this recipe, which called for baking the zucchini sticks instead of frying them.

They may not look too appetizing, but they sure tasted good!

Quick recap: Since I didn’t have any eggs left after my Day 16 challenge, I coated the zucchini in a thin layer of olive oil. Tomato sauce = can of stewed tomatoes + lots of spices.

Green enough...

Green enough…

The verdict: So much for corned beef and cabbage – these guys really hit the spot after a big weekend!
