All we have harvested is romaine and snap peas, both delicious, but the garden is otherwise SLOW going this year. We need SUNshine. Your kabobs look like a great dinner & that drink...YUM!

PS...You're welcome to come to our enrichment tomorrow evening (7pm) at Sheryl Nixon's. Julie Berry is coming to discuss her novel, The Amaranth Enchantment, as well as nurturing our creativity & interests. Whitney will help guide the discussion. It's going to be wonderful! We invited our YW...if you want to bring your oldest daughter she'd probably enjoy meeting Julie. Julie will be bringing copies of her book for purchase and will sign personal copies of her book as well. We'd love to have you!

Dinner looks great as does the drink. Mr. M looks like he's enjoying it. I think zucchini survives everything. One minute is two inches long and two days later, you have one a foot long. Love zucchini. It's great to make zucchini parmesan as well.
