I made minestrone soup for Sunday dinner. Wife Jan asked for zucchini bread to go with it. While it has been a long time since I have made this bread, there is a family history behind this bread.

Karl’s Ratatouille without Alliums or Eggplant
I am making a barbecued chicken with French flavors and I wanted a vegetable side dish. Ratatouille came to mind, but a quick scan of common recipes turned up some problems for my family. Almost all of the recipes called for alliums—garlic, onions and leeks, etc.—which daughter Miriam is “off.” Most of the recipes for ratatouille also called for eggplant, which my entire family is unable to digest.

Karl’s Annatto Barbecued Zucchini
I am doing a fusion Mexican theme this Labor Day. Spices from South of the (U,S,) Border, but in ways that are probably non-traditional. Jan and the kids have been pushing me to make more vegetarian dishes. I decided to make a second vegetable dish to go with my cauliflower. I had used an annatto sauce to make a bright red cauliflower. I am using the same sauce on zucchinis before I barbecue them.

Karl’s Zucchini Ras el Hanout
I made a tajine for my Father’s Day dinner to go with my Moroccan lamb. I had a zucchini on my counter that I wanted to use before it spoiled, but I thought that a soft squash like this would not stand up to the long cooking time of a tajine. I decided it would be much better barbecued separately. Since I had already blended Ras el Hanout for the lamb it seemed an obvious spicing.

Karl’s Italian Sausage Lasagna with Vegetable “Noodles”
The kids are on one of their low-starch diets—South Beach this time—so I have to adapt my Sunday meals to this. Personally, I believe that the secret losing weight is in not eliminating any particular “evil” food group, but in eating healthy and eating less—a bit of exercise wouldn’t hurt (the pot calling the kettle). There is no healthy way to eat massive amounts of food and still lose weight—still I try to accommodate.
