JeffreyW’s yummy zucchini and summer squash
A bit delayed this weekend. No real excuse, except life, as usual, was a little hectic. Today I went for my first ride in at least a year. Had to test out my bike after the crew that was here to replace my furnace and add energy upgrades, also fixed my bike. Loved those guys.
When I got home, I was startled to find a hawk sitting peacefully in my driveway, awaiting my return. I believe he was a young Cooper’s hawk.
For this week, we are raiding the garden – Zucchini and Summer Squash Saute featured along with a Family BLT on Monday.
One of JeffreyW’s many BLT photos. Now I’m hungry.

At least someone has fresh tomatoes…mine are a long way from JeffreyW’s crop.

Technically this is my BBQ pulled pork sandwich, but you get the idea.
Friday’s menu features Slowcooker Shredded BBQ Chicken Sandwiches, perfect for those hot mid-summer days when you don’t even want to fire up the grill.
I’ll be out of town next weekend, so next’s recipes could be delayed. I’m a little nervous – first time with the new pet sitter. She seems great and has had Great Danes herself. But I never know if Bixby is going to be a big lovebug or decide to throw his weight around. And fingers crossed Bailey doesn’t decide to eat any more furniture. Crazy dogs.
What’s on your menu this week? What’s your favorite summer garden food? Mine is corn on the cob. Someone asked in one of the recipe threads how best to cook on the grill. I like to peel down the husks, wash off the silks and then pull the husks back up and grill the wet corn. The steam helps it cook quicker. If you desire a little char on the corn, once it’s done cooking, pull the husks off and grill for a minute or two more, turning often until desired char is achieved.
