The hot sweltering weather is gone for now and it has been really nice out. I took a nice long ride this morning. Work was slow, so that allowed me a longer ride.
This is me 16.5 miles later:
This ride took me about 80 minutes. The neighbors probably were wondering what I was doing trying to balance the bike on my hip and get the angle of the picture right 😀
I wanted to share this fun little project. I am always on the look out for repurposed stuff for the garden and I saw a picture on Pinterest to recreate. I always scope out garage sales and thrift shops looking for cheap dishes and cups for this stuff. They don’t have to match, but this set did.
I just used this stuff to glue the cup to the saucer:
Then hung it on a hook.
I am concerned about squirrels putting their weight on this, so I filled it with niger seed, which the squirrels are not interested in. Hopefully the birdies will find it soon. It seems to take a couple weeks before they notice a new feeder. At least it is cute to look at anyway.
So you know I am trying to eat different veggies this month. We were at the farmer’s market this weekend and I picked up some yellow squash. They look good, don’t they?
I preheated the oven to 400 F. Then I sliced the squash into 1/2 inch slices and put them on a nonstick mat. Then I sprayed the tops with cooking spray, salt and pepper and distributed 1/2 ounce of parmesan cheese over the top:
Bake for about 20 minutes or so until the squash is tender and the cheese is melty and a little browned.
Dinner is served!
The squash was quite good this way.
The yellow squash seems to be a lot softer than a zuchinni. I think I might next want to try it in a quiche. What is your favorite way to eat squash?
