Zucchini Orphans

Something for all those who have found these orphans on the front door step...

Are there a surplus of zucchini? 
The stores pay you to take some.
Your neighbor finds them every morning in his mailbox. 
You have a flute made out of a Zucchini.
Someone leaves a basket full on your porch overnight....

So what to do, I will offer a sweet and a sour, or a sour and a sweet.
You can find many great recipes with zucchini, breaded, lasagne, breads, etc.
