LE/Fire Lunch ~ Zucchini/Cheese/Corn Casserole ~

Good 55º clear sunny morning. Suspected thunder showers in the area, but no sign of them. "Supposed" to be cooler today. Hit 90º yesterday. Last night there were a 'hint' of clouds.....

A young doe and her little spikey buck were out. She was keeping an eye on me while I was standing on the porch....

This is the 188th day of the year, with 177 remaining.
Yesterday I had three young deer at the back door sharing chow with some Toms... 

The one Tom was looking at me, the deer did not know where I was...

This morning I saw the first of the hens with her chicks. They were very nervous and scooted off into the trees before I could get my camera!

Then yesterday off to the Grants Pass Golf Club for our LE/Fire luncheon.

It was a beautiful day and the barbecued hamburgers were great!

(Thanks for taking the pictures Candy!)


Big lunch, was not hungry for dinner, but here's a great little side dish to use up some of that abbondanza ( ) of zucchini in your garden.

From my friend Sandy....
shredded zucchini
1 block shredded Jack cheese
large can Ortega green chilies
2 cans white corn - drained
salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste
Put shredded zucchini in a large fry pan with a small amount of oil, cook until most of liquid is gone and zucchini has decreased by about 2/3. Add corn, chilies, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Mix well, add shredded cheese, and stir in. Heat on low until cheese is all melted.

"The above makes a very large amount, for just the two of you I would shred about 6 med to small zucchini and then use about 1/3 of a block of Jack cheese. You can judge how much you want in there after the zucchini cooks down. Use one can of corn."
Well, it seems that the underlined links are now working on my blog, so I don't have to add the http:// line.... Check them out and let me know.
