Low-Carb Meat, Tomato and Mozzarella Stuffed Zucchini Cups are perfect for September!

In mid-September gardens are still flourishing in most parts of North America, but you may be thinking it’s time use those garden veggies in fall-focused dishes. This is the time of year when stuffed zucchini seems like a perfect choice, don’t you agree?

There are as many recipes for stuffed zucchini as there are gardeners who grow zucchini, but the Meat, Tomato, and Mozzarella Stuffed Zucchini Cups shown above have been one of my favorites since I first posted the recipe.

Other stuffed Zucchini variations I’ve enjoyed include Stuffed Zucchini Recipe with Ground Beef and Vegetarian Stuffed Zucchini

I’m still buying zucchini at the Farmers Market every week, so zucchini is still on the menu at my house. If you have a favorite recipe for Stuffed Zucchini, let us know about it in the comments!

Now here are a few more things I’ve been thinking about . . .

Did you know that most countries don’t refrigerate eggs, but there’s a reason that eggs are refrigerated in the U.S.? I didn’t know this. (Via Steamy Kitchen on Facebook.)

And I guess I will have to eat my words about not refrigerating tomatoes. Kind of. (From Serious Eats.)

Making oatmeal in the rice cooker is awesome, according to The Kitchn. (It was an investment, but I love, love, love my Zojirushi Rice Cooker (affiliate link) and can’t wait to try this. And I also want to try Cooking Quinoa in the Rice Cooker. )

I’m still missing my garden, but I’ve been getting greens, squash, and tomatoes at the farmers market. If you’re growing Swiss Chard, it’s probably abundant right now (lucky you!) Here are Healthy Swiss Chard Recipes from Kalyn’s Kitchen and other blogs if you need ideas for using it.

I think making your own Garbage Disposal Cleaning Tablets sounds like a great idea! (Found on Bitz & Giggles.)

Dr. Mark Hyman has some good ideas about how to design a life where health and weight loss are an automatic side effect of your environment. What do you think?

And finally, Grist reveals The Secret to a Happy Life. (Who could argue with that?)
