FROZEN quilt, Zucchinis Demise & Zucchini report, etc...

If you have been living under a rock for the past year you may not know about Anna and Elsa from the Disney movie FROZEN.  They are very popular.  OK. Now that I've brought you up to date...

I have the PERFECT pantograph for these quilts.  This is Flurries by Lisa Calle, and I bought it through Digi-Tech.

Now for the funeral march.   
What the hell has happened to my zucchinis???

Some kind of bug infestation.  Little bastards.  Tunneling into the stems until there is nothing left but mushy pulp.  Some people have been suggesting that perhaps DH had a hand in this tragedy.  Although he can be a devious sumbitch, I have faith that he would not do that to me.  And he has denied any involvement.
Last week I referred to a recipe I was trying, for Zucchini Soft Taco Shells.  (for your own safety please sit down now)  DH said, and I quote:  "I WOULD EAT THESE AGAIN."  I had to ask him to repeat himself.  If you have a zucchini hater in the house, try these.

Since I will have no zucchini to shred for the freezer (excuse me a minute, I have to go blow my nose).  Sorry.  Last night we blanched and froze 24 cobs of Snyder's Sweet Corn.   Hoo baby!  That is going to taste just FABULOUS in January.

I was so distressed over the zucchini, I was a little crabby and sent Sadie out to work.  Here she is doing her job as a Wind Sock.  Check out those ears!  ha ha ha...

There will be another report next week because I will pick the last wee stragglers today, but it'll be the final year end stats.  Sadly.  :-(

Picked this week:      7
Picked YTD:         100


  1. Love that Panto pattern. Sad about your plants!

  2. Just found your blog through a series of links, and I love your sense of humor! Poor zucchinis, but sometimes it's nice to have something bad happen to them before they take over the world. My granddaughter is almost 4 and Elsa and Anna are so important in her life, but I imagine there are still people somewhere in the world who haven't heard of them yet.


Please - share your wisdom...
