We are having a light lunch on the deck to celebrate the start of school. Our grandsons are eager for school to start, and of course, we are encouraging them to "Give It OWL You Got."
I'm using a new settee I purchased half-price
and paying tribute to the wise old owl with some owl salad plates.
I am a retired educator (retired twice) and happy that I'm not starting back to school.
My husband is a Superintendent of Schools (retired once from Missouri and this will be his last year in another state).
Our grandsons are eager to return to school; one is in 3rd grade and the other in kindergarten.
We hope they use this old poem and listen to their teachers:
A wise old owl sat in an oak;
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard;
Why can't we all be like that wise old bird?
I recently took this pic of the Screech Owl while visiting
The Nature Center at Land Between the Lakes.
For our light lunch, we are having Sauteed Zucchini (recipe at the end). It's very easy and super fast to make.
and fresh tomatoes from the local farmer's market.
The black-eyes susans are blooming in many yards around Murray. They are so colorful!
Heating 2 tsps of extra-virgin oil and 1 clove of smashed garlic and 1/4 tsp of red pepper flakes in a skillet, stir constantly for about 30 seconds then remove the garlic.
Add 1 lb of zucchini that has been cut into 2-by-1/4-inch matchsticks, cook undisturbed for about a minute on each side until golden brown.
Sprinkle some breadcrumbs and stir lightly.
Remove from the heat, and salt and pepper to taste.
Transfer to a serving dish and top with 2 lbs. finely ground Parmesan Cheese.
I didn't use garlic but it's optional. I also tried a little dill weed to vary the flavor.
Thanks for stopping by for another day of Life in Kentucky - Judy.
