He Tried to Kill Me, a Six Hour Vacation, Homemade Potato Chips & a Near Fire

At first glance these things may not seem to go together. But in my world it’s not even that unusual to have topics like these juxtaposed.

It’s Only Wednesday!

Yesterday I woke up with a migraine that felt like I was trying to give birth through my right eye. It was…unpleasant. And the rest of the day was equally as lovely. I’d accomplished so much on Monday that I was convinced this week I’d get my Super Wife/Mama/Bam cape and fly through the rest of the days like a super star.

Italian Sausage Stuffed Zucchini Boats

Italian-Sausage-Stuffed-Zuc

The zucchini plants are starting to produce in my garden. I’m being drowned in zucchini! Each year I swear I won’t plant as many zucchini as the year before but I do anyway. We’ve already had fried breaded zucchini and I’ve shredded zucchini for bread. I’m dehydrating it so I can add it to soups in the winter and I’ve thought about canning some pickled zucchini. And of course some will go to the food bank. Tonight I’m making Italian Sausage Stuffed Zucchini Boats for dinner. I love the combination of zucchini and Italian sausage. The dish is a little spicy, a little sweet, and altogether delicious!
