Hello everyone! I hope everyone is doing well! I think it's been almost a month since I have posted, or read your blogs. Sorry I have been away, but life happened. My mom has been in the hospital, but she is home now and doing better. I've been trying to take care of her along with working a lot of over time, so that hasn't left me much free time. What free time I've had, Tony and I have just been trying to chill. :o) I hope to be back on my normal routine very soon. I have really missed everyone!
Our little garden that we have is thriving. Here's our yellow squash that is coming right along. Tony took this picture yesterday, so these little guys should be ready to eat in the next day or two. I can't wait. Are you getting any veggies out of your garden yet? Oh....question....has anyone ever cooked squash greens? Tony read that cooked squash greens were very good and supposed to be very good for you. I haven't had time to look into it, but I was just curious if anyone has had them. If so, how did you cook yours and did you like the squash greens?
Here's two zucchinis that we picked last night. Yes, we ate one of them last night, but it wasn't a healthy version. :o)
Here's the zucchini all fried up. It was soooo good. The Old Town Spaghetti Store serves fried zucchini like this as an appetizer. We got some when we went there to eat a while back and loved it so much that we decided we needed to try to recreate it. Tony's the one who actually cooked it, and it was almost spot on. He dredged each slice in soy milk, then into a wheat flour / corn meal mixture. He added a little salt to half the batch and on the other half he sprinkled some Red Robin's seasoning, which to me was the best tasting. He then fried it in a little canola oil. The Spaghetti store serves theirs with marinara sauce. We didn't have any though, but I really don't think it needed it. :o) I also made some fried rice, which I think is the best that I've made so far. I used basmati rice, half a bag of frozen veggies, half an onion, a portobello mushroom, some soy sauce, ginger powder, and pepper. Very simple and very good! And of course there's a Boca Chik'n patty on my plate too. Yummy supper!
Work has been pretty stressful over the last few weeks. Since we have moved to a
Here's a close up of the cute turtles. I just love the little guys! :o)
That's all for now. I just wanted to check in and let everyone know that I was still kickin and hope to be back to my normal blogging within the next week or two. I hope everyone is doing well!
