Hello Friends & Happy Monday! I'm taking a break from todays mini collections to bring you another yummy recipe from dinner with the mister, made last week. I posted a picture on my Instagram of zucchini fries an had a few people ask me about them so I wanted to share this simple recipe and a few pictures below. They were soooo good and seriously so simple to make. If you like zucchini's I'm sure you'll love these french fry substitute.
