Sesame zucchini

On the menu this week --- sesame chicken over a bed of spiralized zucchini, with homegrown sweet peppers and Egyptian onion tops for accents.

Ripe pawpaw

Dessert came from the park --- wild pawpaws. The groves have been smelling so sweet all week that I felt like I was walking through a perfume factory so I figured I'd give one a try even though pawpaws are among my least favorite fruit.

Mixed with homegrown red raspberries, the flesh was much more appealing than I remembered. I'm looking forward to learning more recipe ideas at the Pawpaw Festival, coming up this time next week.

The pulp can make puddings, maybe even cakes. Can also be blended with OJ or milk, or both, for a cool drink--can also be watered down.Probably can also be a kind of fruit spread, esp if mixed with berries...Alone, it is sort of cloying:)
