Summer Has Arrived!!!

Ok...not really. But here in Sourthern California summer is in full swing. The boys prefer cool weather, but hubby and I could not be happier to see it warm up. Winter felt like it lasted forever. It was harsh and punishing and felt like it went on forever!

Happy Memorial Day and thank you to everyone that has served our country. You are so appreciated.

Justin actually did not expect to have the day off. Sunday night he found out that he did not have to work the next morning...it was his first Memorial Day off since getting out of the Marines and he was THRILLED! We went out and got a kiddy pool with cup holders, inflated it and loafed in the sun until we were pruned. It was HEAVEN.

I am a lucky girl. So much love. So much fun. Living in such a beautiful place.

For dinner we cooked up some sausage and the biggest zucchini from our garden. Check it out!!


We are very proud! There is something amazing about growing your dinner.

Our Zukes Recipe:

3 cups chopped zucchini in one inch cubes
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
salt
pepper
4 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese (or more to taste if your are like us and love cheese)

Heat the oil in a pan, add the chopped zucchini, salt and pepper...saute for 5-10 minutes until the zucchini softens and begins to brown. Then remove from heat and toss on the Parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.
