Summer goodness ...!

 I'm an all season gal. Every seasons has its perk ... 

Summer ... I love all the fresh vegetables. Sadly, at this point in time in my life, I do not have space for a vegetable garden ... but I can certainly enjoy the bounty of others.

I love zucchini ... and yellow squash .... They makes such a wonderful refreshing dish.  This is one of my favourite dish .....

What you will need ...

1 yellow squash

1 zucchini 

Olive oil (high quality)

Fresh garlic (you can use powder)

thyme (fresh or dried)

salt to taste

Sun-dried tomatoes

Added at the end - while in a serving dish:

Fresh lemon juice (you do not want to cook your lemon juice)

Parmesan cheese (optional)

Fresh ground pepper

Sauté the vegetable with all of the ingredients except the sun dried tomatoes. I like to add them towards the end of my desired cooking time. I like my vegetable crisp. Plate your creation and squeeze the lemon ... add the cheese. 

This was my lunch today ... so yummy

I added some pine nuts for protein. You can add cooked pasta to the dish. It is so light and a wonderful summer dish.

How are you enjoying the summer bounty? I cannot wait to have my own garden ... soon I am hoping!

Bon appétit!

Catch you all later!

UFO kick ....

Saturday evening, I was watching a video on IG from Corey Yoder (Moda fabric designer) and she was showing us around her quilting studio, talking about the various tools she likes to use ... All of a sudden my quilting mojo got a spark ...

Sunday morning, while enjoying my morning latte ... wondering .... 

Nancy does have a valid point! lol 

So ... I did neither and decided to work on a UFO. I wanted to finish an English Paper Piecing (EPP) quilt I had blogged about on July 29, 2015.

So, I got busy looking for that quilt so I can work on it.

Voila ...

The pattern is by Sue Daley called Little Things: Hexagon. All it needed was to be machine quilted and the binding sew on!

What a great feeling to strike one off the UFO list.

What have you been up to? 

Catch you all later! Cheers!
