Talk about the day getting away from me…my goodness!
My plan for today was to spend a couple hours this morning working on a few client training plans and then have the rest of the day to hopefully head up to Saratoga. Well, between work stuff and house stuff, it wasn’t until about 3pm when I realized that today was pretty much just going to be a wash.
It’s alright though…it can’t always be all fun and games, right? And I did get a lot accomplished too, so I’m happy about that.
Mid-afternoon, I decided I needed to get up and take a break from the computer so I laced up my sneakers for a little workout:
Once I finished up with that, I figured I should head out to the garden to see how things were looking. Well…they were lookin’ mighty good!
Check out that zucchini and squash…they’re monsters I tell ya! And we even had our first pepper to boot.
At this point, I hadn’t really thought about what to have for dinner, but once I realized the abundance of zucchini I had on hand, I made sure to put a good portion of it to use.
I came across a recipe for a zucchini casserole that sounded delicious. I was able to adapt it a bit to use what I had on hand, and I was thrilled with the end result.
This thing was incredible, and I promise I’ll share the recipe with you guys tomorrow when I’m not feeling so fried from the computer…
Along with our zucchini casserole we had some marinated chicken that Jay cooked up on the grill.
I most definitely went back for seconds of the casserole too.
And I’ll be honest with ya…if it wasn’t for the Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies I have sitting on my kitchen counter waiting for me for dessert, I’d absolutely have gone back for thirds. But hey, at least I have a killer lunch waiting for me tomorrow.
For now, I’m stepping away from the computer and heading off to go start up some new reading material…
It’s about time to see what all this hoopla is all about.
