It's Friday!

One of my favorite things about summer is all of the fresh fruits and vegetables available... The other day I stopped at the farmer's market and picked up some eggplant, zucchini, red and green peppers, asparagus.... Cut them up and put them in a large ziplock bag with Italian dressing to marinate for a few hours... Then popped them on the grill... YUM!
They are great as a side dish with grilled chicken or steak... I try to make extra for leftovers throughout the week.... cut them up and toss them with pasta or put in omelettes... or put them on a sandwich for lunch.... So, so good- and good for you!
A little sneak peek of a block I am working on for a special interest publication (i.e. magazine) which is scheduled to hit the news stands in November- I like the way this came out so much, I may try to design and entire quilt around it (time willing!)

This weekend promises nice weather, we will be shopping for a new minivan (ours isn't being nice anymore!) and trying to fit in some laundry, housecleaning, yard work, church and a picnic on Sunday- it's getting so that I look forward to Mondays so that I can "rest"!
Have a great weekend!
BTW- I took all of the photos myself this time- since my "professional" staff photographer is in school!


  1. Peppers and onions! Yum!
