Zucchini Lunch a la Lajoie

What you need for a...
Zucchini Lunch a la Lajoie
serves 3

A adorable little old lady
A well weathered cast iron skillet
A wooden spoon of equal experience
A 100 year old Vermont Farm house
A porch
A snoozing dog
A loved one reading on the porch
An overcast sleepy day
Garden fresh zucchini, onions, red peppers, garlic and basil

Well you don't need all those things but it may help with the magic feel of it all. You do however need the following:

3 Medium sized Zucchinis cut into 1/4 coins
2 small onions (or one medium) sliced into 1/4 rounds
2 cloves garlic thinly sliced
Half of a red pepper sliced into thin strips
Handful of fresh basil, washed, dried and torn into pieces
Soy sauce

Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in your frying pan. When hot add the Zucchini, onions and garlic. Saute until the zucchini is slightly browned. Add the pepper, saute for 2 minutes add the basil for one minute more. Voila! Call in the troops!

We had green tea with our lunch and topped the Zucchini Lunch a la Lajoie with Chow Mein noodles and soy sauce. You could also serve this with brown rice. Marion wanted ice cream for dessert, with spoons of course.
