Summer Time!

"Summer Time and the living is easy"--we are singing this song as we maneuver along our August journey. A friend gives us lovely zucchini during the summer growing season. We try to find unique and interesting recipes for these plentiful zucchini. Some recipes are delicious and 'keepers' but others are a waste of time and effort. We are putting our daily serving of veggies into our diet though. This past week we made Zapple pie--yummy! Next on our list for preparation is chocolate zucchini cake--another proven recipe. Of course, these are desserts and we try to balance out the zucchini use without the aid of sweeteners. We really enjoy the hot pepper cheese squash casserole! Thanks friend!
Earlier this week we came home from errands to be greeted by loud sawing noise and large bucket truck in our back area. We couldn't believe our eyes and ears--they were cutting down that nasty, huge, ugly tree, which is in the greenbelt area. Over the years, this tree has not been trimmed and ice storms has broken several main branches. The tree had just grown helter skelter--worse of all--it was blocking our full view of the front range. The tree is officially at the back of our neighbor's. We shouldn't rejoice when a piece of nature is gone but............
Going........
Going......
Almost gone.......
Gone! The view was one reason we bought at this location. We love trees, but they need to be maintained and trimmed--we want trees not bushes.
