This little family of ducks have been living in our canal and along the canal bank all summer. I love to go out at night and watch as the mother duck takes them for a swim . . . she really knows how to get her little ducks in a row!
They're quick so I can only get a photo of them from a distance, but they are so cute, and it has been fun watching them grow.
Yesterday we irrigated the pasture, and I thought the reflection looked so pretty as the sun was setting. I can already tell that, Mother Nature is starting to change seasons. The days are getting shorter, the nights are a little cooler, and I am finding more and more leaves on my lawn every day. School will be starting in another week or so, and it won't be too long before they are digging spuds. I'm not quite ready for summer to end. That said . . . I love Fall!
I have also noticed boxes of produce left on the table in the hall at church, mostly zucchini and spaghetti squash . . . tis' the season, but how wonderful to have generous neighbors! I've been so lucky to be able to get all the zucchini and produce I want from my son and his wife, who have a gorgeous garden.
One night last week, I made, Gina's, Zucchini Boats, and they were delicious! Her recipe is a super good basic recipe that you can change around to make it your own. I made a few changes, but it was basically the same. I added a little more liquid, because mine looked a little dry. If you like your zucchini a little softer, you could steam it beforehand, or even stick it in the microwave and cook it for a few minutes before stuffing it to soften it up. I covered it with tin foil and cooked it about 10 extra minutes. We had two boats left over so I put them in the microwave and reheated them the next night, I think they were even better the second day!
I highly recommend them! Thank you for the recipe Gina!
Have a wonderful, Wednesday!!
Hugs and Love,
