I rode to the Farmer's Market this morning on Matt's bike (helpful brother-in-law still has mine). They were having a sale on crookneck squash, $5 for all you can fit in a bag. So I rode home somewhat lopsidedly. And made zucchini bread and zucchini fritters, but all with yellow squash. Then I weighed what I have left - I've still got 6.6 lbs. of squash. Silly me. But what a deal! My sister may get some zucchini bread this afternoon. And some squash. I love cooking. Especially when I am not doing it while putting off my thesis!
Last night we did a little more mild celebrating (a friend was having an ugly tie party). And my tie was the ugliest there (Matt wouldn't wear it). Very festive, it was covered in a holly and berries pattern and went horribly with my otherwise cute outfit. It was a blast. Most of the girls didn't wear ties so the host had to go find ties for them. But not me ;)
Anyone got more good zucchini/squash recipes?
And this p.m. a friend is coming by to look at our broken and also insanely installed A/C unit. Hopefully he can give us some useful advice, although it seems like the heat has kind of broken for a while. Low 90's I can deal with. But when the CA fires were really bad we were getting a lot of smoke and the news kept telling people to stay indoors with the windows closed and the A/C on, and we couldn't. And it sucked. So hopefully he can help us out, or at least tell us who to call. Just in case.
Then we are going to a second-run showing of Kung Fu Panda. Yes, yes we are.
