Zucchini Crescent Pie Repeated

Zucchini Crescent PieI was lounging around in my hammock chair today, looking through a summer cookbook, when I came across this old favorite. I posted it a couple years ago, but decided to post again because it is so yummy and it is zucchini season!

 

 

 

Ingredients:

4 c. zucchini, thinly sliced

2 eggs, beaten

1 c. chopped onion

2 c. (8 oz) mozzarella cheese, shredded

1/4 to 1/2 cup butter

8 oz. tube of crescent rolls( can use reduced fat)

2 tsp. mustard

1/3 c. parsley, chopped

1/2 t. salt

1/2 tsp. pepper

1/4 t. oregano leaves

Directions:

Cook and stir zucchini and onion in melted butter for 10 minutes. Stir in parsley, salt, pepper, and oregano leaves. Combine beaten eggs and cheese; add to zucchini mixture. Separate crescent rolls into triangles. Place in an ungreased 10″ pie pan, press over bottom and up sides to form crust. Spread crust with mustard. Pour vegetable mixture into crust. Bake in preheated in 375 degrees for 18 to 20 minutes or until center is set. Cover crust with foil last 10 minutes of baking. Let stand 15 minutes before serving.

 

The last time, I had forgotten to cover the crust, so it got very brown. I said that the next time, I would cover it, so this is the new pie picture. I remembered to cover it, but not until it was almost too late!

 

Hammock Chair Hideout

Caribbean Jumbo hammock chair

My family has five hammock chairs around our big maple tree. We sit in there, a bit hidden, under the shelter of the branches. We love our special family time spent here. It’s shady and cool in the heat of the summer too!

Yesterday morning I saw that one of the branches was laying on the ground. Did it even storm? No! It must just be too heavy from the rain, and the long branch couldn’t hold itself up any more. Not a complete tragedy, of course, as we still have privacy in the backyard. But we will miss that full branch! Thank God for our hammock chair hideout!

I am doing a series on Bandit, our family’s dear little Chihuahua. He truly loved relaxing in hammocks!

Actually, he was just so happy to be sitting near anyone in the family. He is a little hard to see, but he is sitting in this hammock chair too!

Go Fly A Kite

turquiosechairI like the expression “go fly a kite”. It usually is perceived as a way to tell someone to bug off. However, here at the kite festival, it is a nice saying, actually a blessing to these kite flyers.

Any one of them would be thrilled to just a fly a kite! I was actually able to catch a short swing in a swinging hammock chair on the porch of the kite loft while watching a few kite competitions!

Beautiful Day

Brazilian hammock chairI am so thrilled! We finally have spring! Well, it’s actually feels like summer. It is almost hot at close to 80 degrees, but I will not complain. Not after how long it took to get nice!

I actually love the spring weather first, however. But I am just lounging in my swinging hammock chair, watching the birds fly around and listening to them chirp. There goes a beautiful blue bird!

Windy Again

Every day, and I know I complained before, and so did another blogger, but it is windy again! My hammock chair is flying around like a twirling top!

I am ready for the wind to go away because “windy March” is over! I guess it will be April showers soon, that bring May flowers!

Homework Chair

So, as I said yesterday, my Mom got me a hammock chair  this year for my birthday. I actually think it should be called a “homework chair”! Well, because it isn’t quite warm enough, and daylight enough, yet, to do my homework outside in the evening, my Dad hung my chair in my bedroom corner! It is so perfect!

It helps me relax to focus on homework and also before I go to bed. Because, even though I am so tired at bedtime, sometimes my mind is still busy reliving the school day events. It helps me to calm down before I get into bed. I highly recommend these hammock swings for anyone and everyone!

Make a fun, yet delicious and healthy, fruit flag for your cookout! Then enjoy as you are hanging out in your hammock swing.

Ingredients:                           

29 large strawberries

30 large blackberries

7 or 8 bananas

lemon juice

Directions:

Hull and halve 29 large strawberries and set them aside.  Arrange 30 large blackberries, as shown, in the upper left corner of a serving tray or cutting board (it should be at least 8 by 13 inches). Cut 58 banana slices, 3/4-inch-thick, into a bowl. Sprinkle on lemon juice and toss the slices gently with a rubber spatula to keep them from browning. Assemble the banana slices in rows as shown and top each slice with a strawberry half.

A Wonderful Evening

One of my dear friends stopped in spontaneously this evening. I had just weeded, planted, and mulched this past weekend. I also planted several flower pots with some of my favorite annuals, the daisies with the purple centers, that come in several colors, like orange, purple, and white.

It was fun to be able to share my gardens and flowers with her. When I work hard on the beauty of my garden, I do it because I love it and I enjoy the work. It is therapeutic for me. It is rewarding, though, when you know you bring pleasure to others with what you have created. We had a wonderful chat we had, on the patio, over left over sushi and a glass of wine. We then walked around the gardens and ended up each stretching out in a hammock swing and enjoying the friendship, the conversation, and the beautiful evening. I truly believe that these type of moments are what make us the happiest. The simple, unplanned, spontaneous moments that we need to stop and appreciate because they happen all the time and we need to take notice.

Children who have difficulty with focusing on tasks such as  math or reading may find it easier to concentrate while sitting in a hammock swing as their bodies sway with the motion. It seems unbelievable until you learn that hammock swing therapy is actually a treatment in Autism. But some of our children just have a problem maintaining their attention, and this can be very beneficial.

It can be a very easy and inexpensive solution to homework battles. A hammock swing can be hung up or taken down in seconds. Just hang on a hook in a ceiling beam or doorway. It can be used indoors or outside. It is definitely worth a try because all in the household can enjoy!
