One of my favorite veggies is zucchini. It’s been a favorite since I was a child. My mom used to slice them up and steam them with saltine crackers. I know that wounds weird, but it was an all time favorite as a child. I still eat zucchini as often as I can and grow it in my garden when the season is upon us. This recipe is an easy one since I also added Trader Joe’s frozen spiralized carrots. with onions and some seasoning, this one goes from stove to table in no time.
We had a family dinner the other weekend and since it was one of the first warm days of the year, we decided to grill burgers and dogs. How nice that was! It was in the high 60’s so it felt great to breathe in the fresh air while cooking. This recipe was perfect to accompany those grilled goodies.
Since it was such a nice spring day, my niece put together a very pretty spring table with lovely napkin rings. Isn’t this gorgeous?
And these beautiful rings are from Pier One Imports, but you can similar items on Amazon as well. It’s just so pretty and springtime festive!
