Gulp. I really need to come up with a better preparedness plan than using my stockpile of wine to barter for necessary items if the big one hits.
It's not what you think, Objectified is a documentary about design and manufactured goods. While it sounds rather dry, the film was very interesting. Best of all, if you dropped your DVD option from Netflix recently, Objectified is available to view instantly.
This year I was fortunate enough to get one of the community garden plots in my condo complex and I've had a great time tending to it this summer. Like most gardeners who plant zucchini I suddenly found myself with more squash than I could possibly eat. Sure, I gave some away, shredded and froze some, but I really wanted to use as much as I could while it was fresh.
I found this scrumptious-looking recipe for zucchini noodles on the excellent food blog, Kitchen Confindante. I even ordered one of those crazy shredding tools mentioned in the blog post to make the noodles. I have a mandolin which would do the job as well but being a bit clumsy I sliced open my thumb using the mandolin and decided my digits would be better served using the $5 tool.
The recipe was very simple and a perfect light meal for a warm summer night. The leftovers were terrific for lunch the next day too.
