I can’t be the only one that’s enjoying the fact that there’s so many long weekends during the summer. Not having to go into work on Monday makes such a difference even though it’s only one day!
Friday I found this zucchini in my garden. I could have sworn that only a couple days ago it was half the size. It must be the hot weather we’ve been having lately.
I cut it off and had to think for a day or two about how I was going to eat it. Being that it was my first one from my garden, I had to make sure I had just the right thing to put it in.
Saturday I ended up having goat cheese pizza. Yeah, it was just as amazing as it sounds. So delicious!
Sunday morning I decided on putting the zucchini in a pasta salad. I made this salad once before and it was pretty good, so I figured it was worthy of my zucchini. It didn’t disappoint.
I’ve been watching a lot of Olympic soccer. I spent Monday afternoon watching the Canada – US women’s game while eating Olympic mix. Yeah, I’m cool like that. It was a crazy intense game, non-stop action. If you didn’t watch it you missed out on two hours of amazing soccer. The outcome (and reffing) of the game is a whole other post though, so I’ll end by saying that both teams played their hearts out and it was a lot of fun to watch.
I also spent a good chunk of time this weekend reading one of my favourite books – Pride and Prejudice. This has to be one of the most popular books ever. It always makes me think of Colin Firth as Mr Darcy. If you haven’t seen that movie you need to see it soon!
Did you do anything exciting with your extra day off?
