Yesterday was exciting. Not. I picked up dog poo and watered. Then I went through a box of photos and paperwork, OLD paperwork.... my grammar school grade cards, dog licenses, pedigree papers for my dogs, letters I wrote to mom and dad, etc. Found these photos of pals...

Oven Fried Zucchini Chips
Thanks Gator for sharing this!
Guess I'll pick up some zucchini next market run.

3 medium zucchini
1 egg, beaten
2 T. Italian salad dressing (low cal or not)
1/2 cup Panko
2 T grated Parmesan cheese
1/8 t. ground pepper
Vegetable cooking spray
Cut zucchini into 1/4" thick slices, set aside.
Combine egg and Italian dressing, stir well.
Combine Panko, cheese, and pepper in bowl.
Dip zucchini in egg mixture, dredge in Panko mixture. Place on baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake 475º for 5 minutes. Turn and bake 5 minutes more, until golden.
Serve with ranch dressing for dipping.


As always the Olympics were amazing. An interview with Michael Phelps fiance and his mom was nice. That baby, Boomer, of his is sooooo adorable. Phelps said he's retiring, but will go to Tokyo for the next Olympics.



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

National Filet Mignon Day (Mmmmmmmmm)


LOL, or as Jerry called them, "Figgley Miggley" !

Filet Mignon:
The most expensive cut of beef comes from the small end of the tenderloin, and accounts for less than 1% of the entire carcass. Boneless, it is ideally 2½ inches thick, and 1½ - 3 inches in diameter. The tenderloin runs across the back of the steer. Because this area of the animal is not weight-bearing, the connective tissue is not toughened by exercise. This results in extremely tender meat, the most tender of all beef cuts. It is lightly marbled and mild flavored compared to other cuts, and is best served rare or medium rare.

Good morning. Thank you for the heat wave warning. It amazes me tha this summer blast arrives at your house, before heading south to LA.

Thank you for Gator's zucchini recipe. I may try subbing patty pan squash- because that is what the garden decided it would go bumper crop with.

Time to put on a pot of coffee.

Yes, L, I think that patty pan squash would work good too. Love that squash! xo

That baby of Michael's is adorable. However, I always cringe when I hear the mother of his baby is only his "fiance"! Putting the cart before the horse there! :(

The other day Debbie was leaving for the market and asked Isabella if she wanted anything. Isabella responded "ZUCCHINI"! What? Kevin says "Whose daughter is this anyway?"lol Then later he posted a funny photo of her holding her zucchini. I asked what that was about as she doesn't eat veggies. He said she had seen it on a cartoon. lol Oh well! I will send you the photo. It's hilarious!

XO Trisha
