I had set the alarm early this morning to have a quiet time before Christopher brought the car home and I would drive him to work. The morning light was shining through the window and landing on the dish drainer... making even plastic look pretty.
Yes, with all the beautiful dishes I have around, I use plastic when feeding the menfolk except for Sunday dinner and special events. It looks like we had a houseful of guests but I was grilling hamburgers last night and I use the plastic plates for prep work, too.
Sasha is nudging me, trying to stop the typing long enough for a few behind the ear itchies. She will receive just a little attention before I must start a load of laundry in the washer and pull a few weeds before the heat and humidity set in.
I have already sipped morning coffee while reading the first chapter of James. I have driven Christopher to work and stopped to put $10.00 worth of gas in the car on the way home. I set on the front porch rocking and talking to my daughter on the cell phone. It is time to start some serious household chores. :)
Oh... regarding the question about how I cook the yellow squash... I slice it very thick and at an angle and roast it for about fifteen minutes with a little olive oil and course sea salt sprinkled on top. Sometimes I cut them in half horizontally (especially if they are picked while fairly small), and "paint" them with olive or canola oil with the pastry brush, and grill them since that is now an option. I know there are some great veggie casseroles they can be used in, too. According to the Victory Garden Cookbook, they can be used in the same recipes you use zucchini.
I have now added the directions for freezing zuchinni and corn to my recipe blog... here.
