Destination Day...a new beginning
Today is the first day of the rest of August. The sun is shinning…the bread is rising on the screen porch…the tea is brewing in big glass jars by the garden…the bicycle tires are filled with air…and I am pumped.
I take my 15-second stroll to the produce aisle of my yard to check out what’s for lunch. Since the temperature is pushing 100 degrees—mixed greens and a glass of ice tea seems in order. An abundance of zucchini will most likely play a starring role for dinner. I’m thinking about sautéing it in olive oil and adding it to whole-wheat pasta with fresh rosemary and garlic--a salad or fresh spinach for a side is a no-brainer. If I have the time blueberry scones would make a tasty dessert.
