Yesterday I did a minimal of yard stuff. It got to be about 95º and so very humid. ICK. I worked on a calendar with birthdays, made zucchini bread, Dude ran to the road (early, still not 70º yet!) with me to take out the trash.

Clouds stayed until late afternoon and then the sun pounded down!

The Bruise was busy yesterday.... (ahhhhh the life!)

He sleeps all snuggled up next to me all night until he decides he wants to go out and I should get up.... then he attacks my feet! Nut!!!

Here is the zucchini bread... not the traditional loaf, cooked it in a Bundt pan... OMGOOOD!!!

For dinner I sliced and cooked some pre-made polenta in olive oil... topped with some 21 Spice (Trader Joe's) and sea salt..

Then I broke up some chicken thighs I had cooked previously, added in the pan olive oil, baby carrots, broccoli, cauliflower (comes in a bag for stir frying), spinach, a sliced zucchini, and tomatoes....
Topped with sea salt (in bunny bowl), 21 Spice, and lemon garlic....

Let 'er cook and serve on top of the polenta....


Happy Monday. All I know. Nuff said. Ciao.
