Crispy Parmesan Zucchini Sticks

My new favorite recipe! I missed my summer produce by working long hours, so I've been hungry for zucchini. So, first, panko is a coarse bread crumb (almost like cracker) found by the other bread crumbs. Second, you can be creative -- I tried summer squash, tilapia, and other stuff instead of zucchini. Third, I found the egg added a taste I didn't want, so I've been using cooking spray instead. Fourth, instead of mixing the spices into the flour, I've been sprinkling straight on the zucchini.

Wow... did summer fly by or what? In my mind, Memorial Day was last weekend. Summer's unofficially coming to an end, but I'm not going to let the weekend go...
