My son was watching me make some kolokeftethes (zucchini patties) yesterday, using a 2-month-old overgrown zucchini which had turned into a marrow by the time I noticed it growing. Its skin had lost its green colour, and had turned slightly yellow, but this not spoil its interior, which had not turned fibrous, nor had it lost its moisture. I also added some finely chopped onion, a few herbs from the garden and some salt and pepper. He saw all the ingredients go into a bowl, finally being mixed with breadcrumbs and shaped into patties.

"We'll never starve in this house, will we?" he said.
"No, probably not. Do the kids at school look as though they might starve?" I asked him.
"No way! Have you seen what they come to school eating in the mornings?"
Yes, I noticed. All will be revealed in due course.

In the meantime, you have until Sunday to add your name to the draw for a natural beauty package from Aphrodite's Embrace
