Yup, another morning has rolled around. Like yesterday, it is dark now - the clock is just chiming 6 a.m. I was up early (again) and slept really well! The stars did not appear quite as bright this morning, but I could still see them (and the moon). Lovely.
I managed to do a little stitching the other day, but not enough to merit showing or talking about on the blog. I'm planning on having more to show by next Tuesday for a true TNT report.
Yesterday a good amount of time was spent in the kitchen as well as outside. Two loads of wash were hung on the lines to dry. On the kitchen front I roasted the tomatoes in the morning.
I wish I could provide the scent that was coming from the oven - pure heaven! I put some EVOO in the bottom of the pan and then scattered a bunch of cut up garlic cloves and lots of fresh oregano and basil over that. Tomatoes were cut in half and into the oven at 400 that all went for roughly 1/2 hour. Once they cooled I pulled the skins off and threw everything into the blender. Voila - sauce! We are having that tonight with shrimp added to it. My mouth is watering already.
I grated just one of the zucchini (the smaller one which just about filled my food processor!). A new (to me) recipe came to my email yesterday for Zucchini Cookies With a Lemon Glaze so decided to give them a try. More like mini cakes than cookies, but hey! They've got veggies in them, so I call them healthy! LOL
I haven't tried one yet. But I'm hoping they are good. Today or tonight I will make some zucchini bread with more of the grated veggie. I plan to add fresh cranberries (well, ones that I froze last winter) and either walnuts or pecans.
Meanwhile, I'm heading to the office this morning. I don't want to go, but I need to go. Planning to get in early and get out early, pick up some wine and head to CVS for another try at getting Fletch's prescription and a few things I need. Hoping/planning to get home in time to work out before lunch. A busy, but (hopefully) productive day. Hope yours is a good one.
