Labor Day Weekend

Had a wonderful weekend with son and his wife. DS got my old lap top up and running now I think I am going to need to replace the heat sink in it and probably get a cooling pad for it. So now Fred will have a computer too.

    We wandered around the country side  and took Stef to pet a cow.( I do have pictures of that I will post later)  I don’t know if it was a life time dream but it was an experience. The cow wanted to lick her just like a doggie would only the tongue is a lot longer.

So this morning we sent them on there merry way home to Colorado. Hope they have a good drive home and don’t run into any funky weather on the way.

Also we have been picking a friends garden and have an over abundance of produce so did some dealing with that also. Shredded  a bunch of what is called Zucchetta it taste and is like zucchinis and we have been eating it sliced and fried, in a quick bread, and today I mixed a cup of zucchetta with 2 eggs, added onion, garlic and salt to taste then decided it was kind of runny so added a Tablespoon of flour.  Plopped about a 1/3 cup of the mixture in a skillet and fried it kind of like you would a potato pancake. We ate it with some left over Pesto sauce and it was good something to make again that is for sure.  It would be a good side dish or morning breakfast dish. I think it would be good with a salsa on the side and maybe some sour cream. (sorry I did not think to take a picture of it)

Now I will work on catching up some laundry and work on the binding of the Triple Irish Chain Quilt. Oh and I picked up my other quilt a shattered 9 patch that I made with left over fabric from the Triple Irish Chain (I got carried away when buying that yardage is all I can say) The Shattered 9 Patch came out wonderful Thank You! Connie Klausen from Elgin Iowa. I would highly recommend her quilting if you need a quilt finished.

Looks like I have a bunch of photos to post on all this in the very near future.
