Weather ~ Picture of the Day ~ Clark Gable in Gone With The Wind ~ Baked Zucchini Chips ~ Richard & Annette Escalante ~ National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day


Good 30º clear morning. 
Yesterday we topped at 72º.
Picture of the Day

Interesting about Gone With The Wind movie....
When Gary Cooper (1901-1961)

turned down the role of Rhett Butler in the film "Gone with the Wind" he was quoted as saying, "Gone With The Wind is going to be the biggest flop in Hollywood history. I'm glad it'll be Clark Gable who's falling flat on his nose, not Gary Cooper." Cooper had been producer David Selznick's first choice for the role, but to Selznick’s disappointment, he wasn’t interested.

Unable to persuade Cooper, Selznick instead hired Clark Gable. Cooper couldn't have been more wrong. "Gone With The Wind" was immensely popular when it was released and is now regarded as one of the greatest films of all time.

The next time you get the urge to snack, why not bake up a batch of our Baked Zucchini Chips? These are a healthier way to enjoy the satisfying crunch of delicious squash! Whether you make these zucchini chips for parties or for eating alongside dinner, their fresh from the garden taste will have everyone asking for more!


  • 1/4 cup Italian-seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 zucchini, cut into 1/4-inch slices
  1. Preheat oven to 425º. Coat an oven-proof wire rack with cooking spray then place on a rimmed baking sheet.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Place milk in a shallow bowl.
  3. Dip zucchini slices in milk then coat with bread crumb mixture, making sure to pat them well so the breading sticks nicely. Arrange breaded zucchini on wire rack.
  4. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until browned and crisp. Serve immediately.

****These are great to enjoy as is, or even better when you serve them up with a bowl of either a rich marinara sauce or a cool and refreshing ranch dressing or dip.

Each year, National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day on April 12th recognizes one of the top comfort foods in the United States. Why wouldn’t it be when we’re talking about bread grilled to perfection, and warm, gooey, melted cheese. 


According to food historians, many cultures around the world have enjoyed cooked bread and cheese since ancient times. The United States modern version of the grilled cheese sandwich originated in the 1920s. As sliced bread and American cheese became easily available, Americans began making open-faced grilled cheese sandwiches.

United States government cookbooks describe Navy cooks broiling “American cheese filling sandwiches” during World War II. 

Grilled cheese sandwiches are versatile thanks to the ability to mix and match cheeses, bread, and seasonings. Adding sauteed vegetables or herb-infused oils can elevate this simple comfort food to a whole other level.  


Make your favorite version of a grilled cheese sandwich. Do you use American cheese or do you prefer Swiss? What’s your favorite cheese? Serve it with your favorite soup and sides, too. Layer it and make a double-decker grilled cheese sandwich. Add ham or bacon for extra flavor and variety.
