Today we went into the garden in the back yard and we picked 2 summer squash , 2 zucchini squash and 2 cucumbers ! Bobo and Sissy were so excited.
One of Mommy's sisters called Auntie Lala (because she always sang the Elmo Song ) loves to cook in the microwave. She peeled the squash , cut it up and put into one of those zip and steam bags . They were delicious and kept all of the nutrients in the bag instead of losing them if you boil the squash like Nana used to do. They cook in shorter time and there is no pan to cook. We are certainly going to use these all summer. Can't wait to pick more vegetables.
For the past few days we have seen a rabbit with a white bushy tail running around the garden . This is wonderful for the kids and we look forward to learning something new everyday.
