I can’t believe my blog has been in existence so long and I have yet to post kolokithokeftedes. For some reason any time we have them I don’t get to take a picture, or something else happens (like The Great Computer Crash of 2013). Kolokithokeftedes are basically zucchini fritters with feta. Kolokithi is zucchini (really, it’s more the word for gourd) and keftedes are meatballs. These don’t really resemble meatballs (well, they could if you rolled them differently and deep-fried them), but who am I to argue?

I love these little bad boys because they are quick, healthy, and a great way to use up all the summer zucchini. Oh, and, I’m also a fan of anything that “forces” me to make tzatziki. We aren’t really appetizer people (when it’s just the four of us eating, that is) so when we have these we normally make it an ALL small plates/appetizer night with these, small souvlaki, pitas, Greek village salad, etc.

PS: I am the queen as posting things with questionable timing. Every other blogger right now is like, “AMERICA!” and here I am with Greek food.  Sort of like how I posted Hawaiian food on St. Patrick’s Day.
