We had some great discussion here yesterday about book prices! Everyone seems to be in agreement that it is cheaper to buy online – even if we are mildly plagued by guilt to our local booksellers. There also seems to be a difference in price based on which country you are in and which site you chose to buy from. Denzylle had a great suggestion for a site I hadn’t seen before called http://www.bookdepository.co.uk. I checked it out and the prices are good – and the shipping is free anywhere in the world! If anyone from Canada has bought from here let me know please :).
I can also recommend abebooks. They are a great resource of used books, I have bought several Marcella Hazan and Julia Child books for less then $2 a piece this way. Plus, I used to work there and it really isn’t an amazon.
This recipe is a quick and easy way to do zucchini, plus the nice thing is that it serves up really well no matter how you do it. If you make it and then let it sit you can easily reheat it 20 minutes later or serve it at room temperature.
[print_this]Quick Sauteed Zucchini
2T olive oil
1/2 onion, small diced
1 medium zucchini, small dice
lots of freshly ground salt and pepper
In a large skillet heat the olive oil up to medium low and add the onion. Sweat stirring occasionally for 5 minutes then add the zucchini. Add a healthy pinch of salt and a few grinds of pepper and stir. Turn the heat up to medium and cook quickly until the water has started to be released from the zucchini. Continue cooking and stirring until tender but still a little crunchy. Should take under 10 minutes. Taste for seasoning and adjust. Can be served hot or at room temperature.[/print_this]
