Monday Morning in the Kitchen: Bacon-Wrapped Zucchini

I can't claim credit for this idea, and unfortunately, I don't remember where I first read this recipe.  (If I read it on your blog, please let me know, and I'll put in the link to your site!)

Are you swimming in zucchini?  Is your freezer stocked with zucchini bread?  Have you put grated zucchini in all of your favorite casseroles?  Have you thought about just wrapping zucchini in bacon?


Bacon-Wrapped Zucchini

Cut zucchini into spears.  Wrap 1/2 slice bacon around each wedge.  Fry in pan until bacon is done and zucchini is crisp-tender. 

Enjoy!

What's your favorite way to use zucchini?

  2. I love zucchini -- usually sauteed in butter with some mushrooms! Yum! But this -- you may have found a way for me to get my grown daughter to eat zucchini - wrap it in bacon! She loves all things bacon! Thanks!

Ten Things of Thankful: Post-Thanksgiving Edition

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I'll jump right in:

1. I'm thankful for cooperative return policies. Several weeks ago, I mentioned that I had to return a range that I had purchased, and I hoped that the particular range was just a lemon and that the replacement wouldn't have the same problem. Well, unfortunately, it did. On the bright side, the store quickly picked up the second range and refunded my money. I'm putting appliance purchases on the back burner (!) for the moment. 

2. I'm thankful for temples. I went one morning this week to the temple. I'm always amazed at how much insight comes in just an hour or two of reflection. 

3. I'm thankful for my sister. She and her family came to Utah to spend Thanksgiving with her in-laws, and I got a chance to see her and her family on Wednesday. The last time I saw her was in January at our grandma's 100th birthday celebration. We feel lucky to have two visits in one year! 

4. I'm thankful for my brother. …

Ten Things of Thankful: California Poppies

Spring has arrived.  On Wednesday, I took off for a few hours to hike.  The weather was perfect:  the sun was shining, the wind kept itself to a cool, slight breeze (as opposed to Thursday, when the sustained wind speed was 37.5 mph), and the temperature was warm, but not oppressive.  

My Ten Things of Thankful list this week will be mostly made of photos.  Each time I climbed another hill, or turned another corner, I was delighted with the new view.  Come along with me!

The poppy fields can be seen from miles away.

Many other people had the same idea I had on Wednesday. The line to get into the Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve was longer than I've ever seen it. Many cars turned around and decided to just park on the main street and hike into the reserve.

Once I finally got the car parked and started to hike, I was greeted with wonderful views.  I hiked the steepest and furthest trails, and was rewarded by moments of solitude.
