Hey buddies! How was your week?

Mine would be totally better if this zit would just go away. It’s so big that I seriously could charge it rent. Like, downtown-Chicago-two-bedroom-apartment rent.

The darn thing is just sitting there, lookin’ all big and bossy on my right cheek. My husband thought it was a mosquito bite. Putting makeup on it doesn’t help – it makes it stand out even more! Got any tips for me? Home remedies? I hate this thing. It needs to pack up and move!

In other news, I made you Fried Zucchini Chips. Aaaand I am going to make your breath smell like garlic for about 16.8 hours.

The Garlic Vinaigrette is pretty amazing. In all honesty, I could just sop it up with a slice of fresh baked bread. Actually, I did do that last week. I made a batch of these Croissants with Sesame Seeds and Feta Cheese and I just dipped and dipped and dipped away… One of the best “meals” I’ve had in a long time! The next day I decided to continue with my dipping, but only this time it would be with zucchini.

I always knew that summer was coming to an end once my mom started serving this particular zucchini dish. In Macedonia, zucchini, garlic vinaigrette, and August go hand in hand. Come August, this is the most frequent side dish to just about any meal, especially grilled meat. OR it is served as an appetizer with a side of Rakija. That is, Moonshine. Homemade. BURNS like hell!

I pass on the Rakija thing and enjoy them as is.

If you have never had zucchini rounds with garlic, you must must must make them right now! Okay, soon is fine, too! And, if you’re not a zucchini fan, I think you might want to give it just one more try

…which reminds me, and it’s totally random, but this song has been in my head for the past 4 days. Listen and name that singer. If you are/were an NKOTB fan, this should be a no brainer! Okay, ready? “Listen”

One more try I didn’t know how much I loved you…

One more try let me put my arms around you…

Living all these lonely nights without you…

Oh baby can we give it one more try.

I. Can’t. Stop. Singing. It. AND I hope you are now humming to it with me… 😀

    Tommy Page sang that song! Saw him in concert with NKOTB & Tiffany in early 90’s! Think that was his only big hit!

    Zucchini is awesome but that dressing. I think I will be making it all the time and putting it on everything.

  3. Way healthier than the ones I fried the other day. With these I can eat without guilt and keep the vampires away!
