in healthy, Main Dishes, tidbits

my goodness where have I been?

oh just at home. doing the same old. work. family. summer. life. outside. running. enjoying long nights.

up north. cabin. lake. swimming. fishing. family. friends.

and to admit trying to avoid my computer.

as when i am home with the boys i want to spend the day with them.

I don’t want my boys seeing me at the computer all of the time.

and with summer’s beautiful long nights…well we all are staying up late. so my typical blogging at night just isn’t happening.

playing. watering the plants. my so-called garden which consists of 2 tomato plants and 2 pepper plants (which are still alive so far garden success) cleaning. folding laundry. trying to put laundry away.

does my list need to go on?? LOL

oh and training for the madison-mini half-marathon I am running august 17th. up to 10 miles. woot woot.

and I have been cooking! just not taking pictures.

zucchini is in the air or land i should say. right now at our local farmers markets you can really load up on this wonderful vegetable.

so i wanted to share a few recipes that i have made with this beautiful green veggie.
