Zucchini Boats and Guac!

You know the feeling when Thursday rolls around and you open the fridge and all your meal plans for the week didn't actually end up happening?

Come on, please tell me it's just not me ;)

I actually love it when this happens because I take it as a challenge! What can I make, that tastes great with ALL the produce I bought that week?

Today I found, 2 yellow squash and 2 green zucchini along with several peppers from my garden, an onion, lean grass fed beef, 2 avocados, goat cheese and a TON of spinach.


Here's my latest creation.
Zucchini Boats stuffed with Beef and veggies, and Homemade Guacamole

First I halved the green zucchini and boiled them for 12 min

sauteed onion with olive oil and browned the meat

chopped up the red peppers and yellow squash and then added them to the meat

rinsed and chopped the fresh spinach and set aside

Removed the green zucchini and scooped out the center (saved the center ;)

Added the spinach the the veggies and beef quickly!

Stuffed the zucchini and cooked for 12-15 minutes at 370 degrees


  1. Yum, nice idea for leftover produce!!

  2. Ask Domenica how it tastes I bought her lunch today :) used zucchini insides with rest of veggies and meat and bam no waste and there's my lunch! Oh and spinach gets used up in my green smoothies thanks to you and Krista!!!!
