My Extended Vacation

I feel as though I've been gone for an eternity.  I'm just now re-entering the human race after a bout of some nasty bronchial /cold ailment.  For the past two weeks I wanted to sleep my life away and only survive on ice cream (that's actually normal for me, though).  Meals consisted of very simple salads/sandwiches, etc.  I did climb out of bed for a pizza on my birthday and wander up to our dear friends home for dinner.

At the onset, hubby and I flew to Santa Fe, New Mexico for some R and R.  Why there?  We've never been there, heard it was a culinary and cultural hot spot (more on this trip later) and we celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary.

So, now I'm "back in the saddle", so to speak, getting back into the kitchen and coming up with different ways to use my zucchini, eggplant and tomatoes that have thrived from all the monsoonal rain we've been receiving.  Love the rain!

This simple zucchini spaghetti was thrown together with garlic, red pepper flakes, olive oil, Parmesan cheese,  pine nuts and parsley.
