HI, pals! Happiest of Sundays!! It’s gonna be a good one because I’m wearing my Sunday’s-best; black yoga pants with one of my husband’s white t-shirts. Bring on the food!!

I have to confess. There’s a song that keeps on playing itself in my head, especially this week. It goes a lil’ something like this:

“Back to liiiiife! Back to reeeealityyyy!
However do you want me! However do you need me!”

Can I just say that life is not as easy as it was 12 days ago? There’s a person in this house that goes to school. Full time! And just because I am now with only one kid for a full 8 hours, that does not mean that I can just put my feet up, sip my coffee and watch Real Housewives reruns all morning long. I learned that the hard way.

Somehow, there’s more to do because when Ana gets home, there’s all these papers I have to look through, AND they (as in her teachers), want me to, like, help her and stuff… Things are definitely not how I thought they would be. Suddenly, last year’s preschool days sound SO MUCH better.

That’s my confession. I just need to learn how to get into the groove of doing school-work. (AGAIN?? BUT I did it for 20+ years!!! WAAAAAH!)

Okay. Now we can talk about Stuffed Zucchini and how I love thee.

      Hi Kristina!! I didn’t do that, but you definitely can. Just fry it up together with the corn. Hope that helps! Have a great Sunday! 🙂

  1. Our Zucchini has not come up yet, but our yellow squash is over the top. Everyone is sick of me giving them some. I did this with yellow summer squash and fresh corn it was DELISH. So sick of putting up squash relish. If anyone has some good squash ideas, let me know. I just tried cucumber chips and squash chips and canned them together with dill like pickles. Other than the squash being yellow, you cant tell the difference. 1titantyler@gmail.com

      Try freezing these on parchment paper and the in freezer bags with the air removed. I ddi and they were a good last minute dinner.
