Do You See It?

Alright, so Magic Mike? Ohhhh boy.

For those of you (aka, all of you) who told me that it really wasn’t that great of a movie, I’d have to agree. The story with the movie was awful…HOWEVER, who the heck would go to see that movie for the storyline…am I right?

I got what I went to pay for: a little eye candy on a lovely Monday afternoon and some QT with my girl Eileen.

By the time I got home from the movie, I really wasn’t in the mood to make our planned dinner, but we had some backup options so I wasn’t too worried. As I was looking through the fridge to figure something out, Jay turned to me and said, “Hey, I think one of your zucchinis might be ready to pick?”


I ran outside to scope out the scene…


I searched around a bit, and it didn’t take long to spot…do you see it?


A little closer now…


Look at that! I grew my first zucchini!


I’m sure this probably is not normal to be so excited about a zucchini, but considering the green black thumb that I have, this is quite the victory.

In addition to my whopper of a zucchini, there’s quite a few smaller ones getting ready, as well as some green tomatoes…


…and some more peppers plus a side of weeds.


So despite the fact that I have two zucchinis in my fridge right now that I bought from the store last week, I let them be and decided to cook up my brand new garden masterpiece to have with dinner.


I sliced and sautéed the zucchini with some garlic, salt, pepper, and olive oil. Then, once they were all cooked through, I drizzled them with a little balsamic vinaigrette and let them cook for another couple minutes.


If you’ve never tried it, I highly recommend it!

Along with the zucchini, I threw together a couple ham and turkey bacon wraps for Jay and I.


Mine was filled with the ham and turkey bacon, lettuce tomato, and honey mustard. Deeeee-lish.

Time to go clean up and hang out with the boys for the evening! Smile

    I need to plant a garden next summer, that will be my goal. I admit, the only reason I’d see the movie is for the eye candy. Who cares what the movies about when you get to see those hotties for a few blissful hours.

    Our gardens must be on the same schedule! I got my first cucumber last night and screamed in the backyard! Its the first thing I have ever grown…I ran in the house shouting “LOOK I MADE FOOD!!!”

    Congrats on the zucchini! For some reason, I’ve been so scared of starting a garden so I started off slow this year with some basil and a few tomato plants. I’m so excited – the first few little green tomatoes are starting to form! :)

    How do you get Zookini to not be so watery when you cook it? No, thats not a typo, you’ve all been spelling it wrong this whole time…
