If you know anything about zucchini, you probably know they grow like crazy. But I bet you didn’t know that August 8th is National Sneak Zucchini onto Your Neighbor’s Porch Day! lol
My garden is growing well but so far the main thing we have had is zucchini. I love zucchini. LOVE IT! I eat at least one, sometimes two, a day. I slice it lengthwise into strips and cook it on my husband’s George Foreman grill with Mrs. Dash Garlic & Herb. OMG! Soooooo good!
I’m not on an actual “zucchini diet” plan or anything, I just count calories and try to eat more whole foods than processed. I figure if I can look at it and tell exactly what it is made from it is better for me than if it has a label full or words I can’t pronounce. If I grew it, even better.
Anyway, we took the kids shopping for school shoes & I got two pairs of jeans. I got my regular size (26) and a smaller size (24). I was planning to try them on when I went so I knew which size to get but my 2 year old is super cranky today so that wasn’t going to happen. I’m going to have to take the bigger ones back! It’s a long way from where I WANT to be, but it’s progress.
Just another reason I LOVE my garden.
