Welcome!

I've finally decided that I am a writer - all the other things I do just pay the bills. Someone eloquent once said that if you do what you love, the money will follow. Well, let's just see about that.

RIP Aggie
Aggie was my fifteen-year-old cairn terrier - or maybe I should say I was her 55-year-old person! She was my faithful companion, spoiled rotten and I am still trying to figure out what to do without her.

Bee is Peter's buddy. He's eight years old and has made himself right at home. I guess cats really do come in pairs or sets of three!

Baked zucchini...

tastes so much better when you order it as an appetizer in a restaurant and they bring it to your table all crispy and steaming hot.  I decided to try making it at home for dinner - zucchini was on sale - and I was not altogether thrilled with the results.  I sliced the zucchini and threw it into a ziploc bag with some olive oil and some italian-seasoned bread crumbs.  After I had the slices pretty well coated with crumbs and olive oil, I spread them out on a foil-lined baking pan, tossed on some grated parmesan cheese and baked them for about forty minutes at 350 degrees.
They sure look a whole lot better than they tasted.  I mean, the zucchini was edible, but something wasn't right.  I need to try again with a little more salt and cheese in the seasoning, I think.  Any suggestions?
