I KNOW...brilliant, right?
What to do with all those veggies in the garden...I came up with these. Stroll out to your garden and pick some fresh veggies or drive to the local market and pick up some up.  Slice, dice and throw them into a heated skillet with some EVO.
Next...send your daughter outside to pick an avacado off your tree and slice it up.
Then pull out some wheat tortillas, sour cream and MJ cheese.  If I had some salsa verde, I would have pulled that out too.  (next time)
I like my tortillas slightly fried but you can eat them plain too.  Go with whatever you're feeling that night.  Slather some sour cream on the bottom and top with the veggies, cheese, avacado and salsa.  (if you are smarter than me and remembered to pick some up while grocery shopping)
I grilled some chicken for the chickens who didn't want their fajitas completely vegetarian.  Here is a fajita unfried with chicken.  It's just as tasty.
See?  She LOVED it!
Two thumbs up for dinner.

You're welcome.  Bon Bon

1 3/4 c sugar
2 eggs
1 t vanilla
1/2 c buttermilk
2 1/2 c flour
4 T cocoa powder
1/2 t bp
1 t bs
1/2 t cinnamon
2 c shredded zucchini
3/4 c chocolate chips

Beat butter, applesauce and sugar well. Add in eggs, vanilla and buttermilk.  Mix well.  Sift in dry ingredients and create a batter.  Stir in zucchini and chocolate chips. Pour into greased cake pans.  Bake 325 for 30 min or so.  Cool 15 minutes before removing from pan.  Frost with chocolate frosting.

Stevie couldn't wait long enough for the sandwich so I gave her the mozzarella, basil and tomato drizzled in balsamic vinegar and virgin olive oil with salt and freshly crushed pepper.  MMMMMM!
 But if you are patient enough to wait the five minutes it takes to make these sandwiches, your mouth will thank you.  Here are the ingredients you will need:
 I bought italian bread and sliced it, brushed with olive oil and grilled the bread on my grill pan. (highly recommended)  Then placed one slice of garden tomato (thanks mom), a big leaf of basil, a slice of mozzarella and some pepper and salt.  See how excited Kayla is?
 These did NOT disappoint!  
Go pick some tomatoes and basil from your garden and
Lovingly, BON BON
