Super Size This! Mama


Yesterday, while enjoying the last days of summer a friend, neighbor and fellow illustrator Amal Karzai presented me with one of her garden’s treasures. A super sized Zucchini squash. I wasn’t as astounded as this was the third one this size that was given to me by neighbors over the course of the summer. Interesting I thought, that vegetables can get this big as I tried to balance it with my hand with my other forearm extended. It was bigger than my arm.
Once I got the sucker home I noticed that it was as big as my 10 lb dog.

Cookie gave the ample edible an unimpressed passing gaze, she apparently wasn’t impressed. Then I tried comparing my foot, I have a long size 9 feet. (Yes those are my blue toenails). This activity escalated to the objects around my house, my computer chair, my coffee maker, toothbrush, etc.

What to do with the sucker you ask? Well, I see 6 loafs of Zucchini bread in my future, or a fibrous stew-esk dinner.
Now I wait till those pumpkins are ready, as I could use a new garage.
