Bob's ~ Zucchini & Pasta ~ Pastachio Peanut Brittle?

Good 48º raining morning. Rain started about 9pm. So far, 1/2".

Because of the high temperatures the snow level is very high and what we have so far is melting...

I was always a Bob's Big Boy fan.

LOVED their combo and would always "add avocado and a side of blue cheese please". The blue was for the french fries after they were covered in Bob's Big Boy Seasoning Salt.

Mmmmmm mmmm mmmm.......... We mainly went to the Bob's on Colorado Blvd in Pasadena to cruise and eat in the drive-in. They closed some years ago. I order a case (24) of the seasoning salt every year or so. In fact ordered one the other day... should be here soon. If you go to a Bob's they are $3.99 each... I pay half of that. Anyway, you old Bob's fans will like this .... (Thanks PatT for this.)

Interesting I was just reading there is a Bob's at the corner of Lake and Del Mar now........................

Yesterday I went to the market, forgot to get the peanut butter Cheerios! I am so MAD. Today for sure! Went to Ace and came home. Got a petri dish to test for mold.
It gives a definitive in 48 hours. Put it in my bedroom. Just to see. PatT suggested it.
Then I packed up my camera, Maggie, and a .38 and took the golf cart up to the pond. Boy howdy is it full! Muddy too. Maggie had a good time sniffing everything. I was glad to see water back in it, as it was so low this summer.

A number of trees and branches in there, so will have to get someone up here to remove them. Checked an old burn pile and found several glass jars, intact, and this old beer bottle....

I thought it was so interesting the way it melted. Will think of a use for it after I clean it more.

Then back down to the house....

The guy we bought the property from liked signs as much as I do!

No encounters with any critters, except the Toms... I found their hang out up there under the trees.

Jeannie and I were talking about zucchini and I remembered this recipe that I found.... It's one of Gweneth Paltrow's... Modified by me, of course...

1# zucchini, sliced thin
1/4 c. flour
olive oil
3/4 # spaghetti (I like angel hair)
1 c shredded Parmesan cheese
1/2 c torn Basil leaves or flat leaf parsley
minced sauteéd garlic
ground black pepper
lemon wedges

Toss zucchini with flour and a pinch of salt. In a large skillet heat the oil until hot and add half the zucchini. Fry, turning until crispy, about 3-4 minutes. Remove with slotted spoon and place on paper towels. Add salt. (I like either lemon or Rosemary flavored sea salt.) Repeat with remaining zucchini.

Cook spaghetti in boiling salted water, reserving 1/2 c of the cooking liquid. Return pasta to pot and toss with 1 cup cheese, basil, garlic, and pepper. Add reserved cooking liquid a little at a time and toss well to coat. Stir in zucchini and serve immediately with lemon wedges and extra cheese. Here I would also drizzle on some of my infused garlic/onion olive oil... or lemon infused olive oil.
