The Monday Recipe Blog
This blog features Lois Elaine Mueller's recipes every Monday. Lois' heyday was in the 1950's and 1960's, and her children swear she was the best cook that ever lived. Many baby boomers will remember these mouth-watering recipes, and these dishes are just as tasty today as they were in the sixties.
If you are trying to decide what to plant in your garden this year, think about a little zucchini squash. This versatile vegetable can be used in so many ways - just google for some great zucchini recipes! But remember, a few zucchini plants go a long way!
Today we have a recipe for Zucchini Parmesan Cheese casserole....Lois' note says she got this recipe from her friend Mona.
