Eat more zucchini!

It is positively UNBELIEVABLE how much zucchini comes from but two little plants.

I have made zucchini with pasta, sauteed, zucchini crusted pizza, grilled zucchini, zucchini hummus, and regular old zucchini and I still have more to use! I'm definitely going with the zucchini madelines tonight.

In knitting news:

My Knitty SP left me a comment~ and started a secret SP blog account for herself! And, she has two crazy kitties too! This is so much fun, thanks SP!

Telebear and Dory (the kittens) have now chewed up another little beaded tassel thingy for my old shale scarf trim.

I have to unknit a single row of but 24 stitches on my orange scarf, and this seemed to have prevented me from knitting last night. That and the fact that my new Skiing mag came yesterday! So, no new knitting.

Just zucchini, wine and dreaming about skiing. I can't wait to ski, I can't wait to ski, I can't wait to ski!!! Soon, soon, soon! Snow, snow, snow!

(and cleaning up after destructo-kittens).

I have two watermelon plants in a tiny space, so I can imagine the zucchini fun you are having now! No zucchini bread yet?? How about zucchini carpachio (murdering the spelling here)?

Perhaps if you wrapped a dog chew toy in tassle-esque material the kittens would stop trying to eat the real thing.

I'll start wishing for snow for you!

Have a happy day!

Zucchini Carpaccio:

Slice 1 zucchini as thin as possible.
Arrange on a plater and give it a sprinkle of olive oil and some salt and pepper.
Slice the stalk part of a leek very thin. Toss over zucchini.
Finely grate the zest of 1 lemon. Toss over zucchini and leeks.
Sprinkle some herbs (I like chives or dill) on top of the zucchini, lemon, and leeks.
Put in fride for a few minutes to let the flavors soak in.
Top with fresh ricotta (if too wet, drain in some cheese cloth) and a bit of fresh mint.

It's an interesting combination of flavors, but it's really fresh tasting and yummy. The recipe is from one of Tyler Florence's cook books (but I can't remember which one right now).

Countdown to Serenity: Firefly, Episode 5
In the first of many flashbacks we see Simon and River Tam as kids, playing and studying at their childhood home, complete with stern yet loving father.
Nice to see some decent content for a change. FYI, I log on today and see that we've got a new feature, the 'Flag blog' button, which is inconveniently located between the 'Get Your Own Blog' and 'Next Blog' buttons so that we would presumably be getting some flags on error alone (although if one happens to notice it, you can unflag a blog) But that's a trivial matter. What concerns me is this: When a person visiting a blog clicks the "Flag?" button in the Blogger Navbar, it means they believe the content of the blog may be potentially offensive or illegal. We track the number of times a blog has been flagged as objectionable and use this information to determine what action is needed. This feature allows the blogging community as a whole to identify content they deem objectionable. Ok, see the problem with this? What's "objectionable." I'm guessing there are a good deal of people that would likely deem my blog to be objectionable; and there lies the problem: what is objectionable and what is subjective.
