My zucchini flower had opened up, today! Zucchini flowers are edible, but I don't want to pick this flower and eat it, even if there aren't any female flowers open for it for pollinate. By the way, apparently zucchini leaves are edible, too! I just found that out the other day! I don't think I've eaten zucchini leaves; have you?
I went to the office today and had a fairly productive day. One of my co-workers brought avocados from her tree to share at the office. I helped myself to a couple of them and am keeping them to ripen to make avocado pudding! Made by mashing ripe avocado with sugar and milk.
My tooth has been bothering me again, for the past couple of days. I'm glad I'll be seeing the physician on Monday - hopefully, my blood pressure readings have stabilized enough for him to sign off on the medical release form and I can get my dental work done. At least have the painful tooth taken care of, whether what I need is a new filling or an extraction.
My gardener friend was working on the garden when I came home from work. I chatted with him while he weeded and mulched around the orange tree.
Afterwards, I made myself a cup of coffee, returned a cousin's phone call, had a snack, and then, fell asleep on the sofa! Didn't wake up until almost 9:30 p.m.!
Today, I am grateful for:
- Avocados from a colleague's garden
- Zucchini flowers
-Tylenol for the toothache
- Phone call from cousin
- Naps on the sofa
Saturday's To Do List:
- grocery shopping (need some fresh fruits and vegetables)
- a bit of sewing
Also, either tomorrow or on Sunday, I want to go to the temple to make a donation towards the flood victims in Sri Lanka.
How was your Friday? Did you know that zucchini leaves are edible? Have you eaten zucchini leaves? How about avocado desserts? Any plans for the weekend?
