Zucchini Stuffed with Orzo and Feta; Read Receipts: Love’em or Hate’em? — 17 Comments

  1. There was a time when you could track receipts painlessly through Outlook. Don’t know if that feature is still available, but Yahoo (my current account) doesn’t offer it. I did find it useful for strictly business transactions. Even so, just b/c a recipient clicks open a message doesn’t mean that they have actually read it; you just know that they got it.
    Delicious zucchini boats, the best of the Mediterranean.

  2. I didn’t know you could refuse a read receipt! I guess I never got one as I’ve never been given the option of refusing. I learn so much from you, Katie!

  3. I know what you’re saying about read receipts. Sometimes I just cancel out of them – not sure what happens when I do that. But, it’s my way of protesting. At the same time, a lot of people are pretty dismal with responding to an email, so it sends the message that they should pay attention.
    I feel very positively about stuffed zucchini. If read receipts were on one end of a continuum, stuffed zucchini would be on the other. I don’t know what the continuum would be called – maybe “things I like”.
    Thanks for participating in the week’s Presto Pasta Nights!

  4. Tanna, Just expressing a bit of frustration… all better now. We’ll be eating at 10:00… We’ll wait for you!
    Susan, there is that… one could click and delete. I use Outlook and it can only track if they’re returned…hahaha!
    Happy Cook, I hope you like them – and thank you!
    Psychgrad, I really think I’ll stick to food and back off the computers for awhile… Preserve my sanity!
    Zoomie, yes you can – kind of defeats it all, doesn’t it?

  5. Those zucchinis look amazing Katie! 🙂
    Read receipts…I feel just the way you do. 😉

  6. Brilliant. I still have summer squash and zucchinis in the fridge and I am a bit burnt out from then. I would like to try cooking them this way, so I can enjoy them again.

  7. I don’t mind the occasional read receipt for things that are really important … what bugs me are the people ALWAYS ask for a read receipt and are only sending jokes. Who cares? I usually don’t send back but it doesn’t matter anyway … the jokes continue coming with read receipts!
    Meanwhile, I am really sorry my 2 zuccini plants didn’t survive the jungle summer … I’m going to have to see if they have any in the market in town to try this dish!

  8. JennDZ, meaning- love AND hate them?
    Lannae, hope you like it ;-))
    Lydia, oh-oh, the neighbors have hit again, eh?
    Thanks. Dr. Doc
    Anne, that woyuld really drive me nuts… jokes with read receipts????

  9. I hate read receipt…don’t use them, don’t like when others do. Okay, enough negativity on my part…I just got back from a great yoga class, all calm and peaceful. Deep breath…
    Katie, so glad you sneaked a zucchini in with your pasta this week. Thanks for sharing with Presto Pasta Nights.

  10. I don’t mind a read receipt when it’s for something businesss related and you have to prove it got through on a certain day. But for jokes?!?!
    Love the zucchini – I’m fully in favour of stuffing vegetables.

  11. I found your blog while googling “read receipt manners.”
    I hate them and wanted to share a link to an authoritative source that says–use them sparingly. Found something on
    However, this zucchini looks marvelous!!!!!!!
