Good 50º cloudy morning. We hit 89º yesterday.
"Chance" of rain..
Throw Back Thursday... Brian Little League 1983
And speaking of Brian, he took this picture of the Rogue River from Caveman Bridge in Grants Pass.. Beautiful!
Breakfast yesterday was low fat Greek yogurt topped with fruit and a pistachio muffin. Mmmmmmm......
It was yard work day. Pull weeds, trim bushes, and mow. Oh, and dog poop duty too! It was only 80º but I was melting!! Came in and had a glass of wine with ice cubes. I never do that, but boy it was good and cooled me off!!!
UPS Dave was here with a couple packages for me. One was some mayonnaise I ordered. I have always been a dyed in the wool Best Foods gal, but now like to experiment. The one on the right is a GREAT mayo. I love it. The others I have never tried. "Pomegranate" sounds interesting!!!
It's summer and those of you who grow zucchini know how overwhelming the amount of squash becomes. Here is a great zucchini pizza casserole:
4 cups shredded unpeeled zucchini
1/2 t. salt
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 cups (8oz) shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
1 cup (4oz) shredded cheddar cheese, divided
1 pound ground beef (or pork or chicken or turkey)
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 can (15 oz) Italian tomato sauce
1 medium green pepper, chopped
Preheat oven to 400º. Put zucchini in colander, sprinkle with salt and let stand 10 minutes. Then squeeze out the moisture.
Combine zucchini, eggs, Parmesan, half the mozzarella, half the cheddar. Press into 13x9 baking dish.
Bake 20 minutes. Meanwhile in large saucepan cook beef and onion over medium heat, until meat is no longer pink. Drain. Add tomato sauce. Spoon over zucchini mixture. Sprinkle with remaining cheeses and green pepper. Bake about 20 minutes longer.

Dinner was an Omaha Steaks marinated salmon filet. Pop in the microwave for 4 minutes. Perfect!
...And a side of Veggie Cakes. I got these at Costco and they are SOOOOO good!!!!
Cesar dressing on the salad and the Pomegranate Mayo for dipping with the salmon and veggie cakes...
After dinner I watched the news, depressing.
A glass of wine and one of my favorite summer shows, Night Shift.
EXCEPT last night's show was AWFUL!!! With all the race rioting, cop hating, etc that is and has been going on, this show was about cop shootings and riots. WHY????? Can't we have something to watch that is pleasant, uplifting, interesting, and/or educational???????????????????? Grrrrr...
All I know. Nuff said. Happy TBT. Ciao.
