Today, when I awoke, I suddenly realized that this is the best day of my life, ever! There were times when I wondered if I would make it to today; but I did! And because I did I'm going to celebrate!

Happy Monday all!!!
I wanted to post a pic of all the amazing Cucumbers and Zucchini I got from my mother in-law's garden yesterday. I would love to have my own garden one day and would like for it to be behind my white farmhouse on 10 acres in the Tenn. mountains! :p Well a girl can dream right!
I love Zucchini and have so many recipes that I'll be making. I learned a few years ago that you can shred it and freeze so I'm going to do that as well.

Here are some of the cucumbers~ They are just perfect with a dash of sea salt

 Zucc and mushroom Quesedilla~ I had never made it before but it was so good!
I sauteed the Zucchini,portabellos mushrooms,onion, in olive oil until tender then added to 2  tortillas with some shredded cheese then cook for approx. 3-5 min on either side.(I just used the same pan I sauteed in)

It's so good with sour cream or salsa~ Delish!

I think I'll be making the Chocolate Zucc cake next :)

It's super hot today and we're under a heat advisory until tomorrow. It's getting ready to storm so I'm hoping that will cool it off some. I know it's only July but my mind is already wandering to those crisp cool days of Fall,I can't wait!

I have returned :)

Hey All~ If anyone is still stopping by I thought I'd pop in and make a new post today. It's been a long time since I have and to tell you the truth I wasn't sure I would ever go back to blogging but I think I'm going to try it again. I started my blog 4 years ago pretty much just to keep a record of my kids and all the things we did and it is so amazing to go back and read some of those posts. We all have grown and changed SO much since then!
My life has taken many twists and turns in the last 5 years or so but I feel very blessed today and every day.
I have no idea if anyone is still reading or ever will but I'm going to continue here with what's important to me family,my faith,my home,cooking, and who knows what else! We'll see how it goes :)
