The garden may or may not be saving my life right now. For the first time in months, I got into my kitchen to do some baking last night. All thanks to one ready-to-be-picked zucchini.
I don’t remember the last time I stayed in on a Saturday, by myself. I haven’t been feeling well lately, and I knew that if I went out – I’d just end up feeling miserable today. So, I took myself on a solo date, at home. This included: cooking myself dinner, baking, laundry (ugh, necessary), and watching a terrible rom-com that no one would want to watch with me. Thankfully, The Vow lived up to my lower expectations.
Cat had mentioned that some items in the garden looked ready for picking. I found myself putzing around the backyard last night, checking on some of the plants. This zucchini must have grown three times in the past week as last Sunday, it was just a little baby. I immediately consulted the Smitten Kitten for a Zucchini Bread recipe. This one was perfect. No butter. I reduced the amount of sugar. Delightful.
I hope my coworkers are ready for a boatload of zucchini bread this summer.
I feel so remarkably better today. I hope you do, too.
