A Can of Red Spray Paint

It's been a while since I've pulled out a can of spray paint.  I'd say it was about time.  

My sister-in-law, Julie,  painted this really fun picture for me a few months ago.  A llama with heart-shaped red glasses--love it!  

As soon as I received it, I envisioned putting it in red frame to hang on the wall.  It only took me a few months to take action, but I finally did it.  

I couldn't find a red frame, so I picked up a black one 

And some pimento red spray paint.  

And now it's hanging on the wall.  What do you think? 

I love it! 

And now I have the spray paint bug again.  Hmmm...what else can I spray down?  
Are you working on any projects?  I'd love to see what you're working on!

Zucchini Pasta

Have you ever made zucchini pasta?  I tried it out for the first time a few weeks ago, and I love it!

First, let's talk about the zucchini.  Zucchini serves as an excellent source of vitamin C. A water-soluble antioxidant, vitamin C dissolves in your body fluids and protects your cells from free radicals, which are highly reactive compounds that oxidize your DNA, lipids and proteins, causing cellular damage. Getting enough vitamin C in your diet also aids in nerve cell communication, and helps your body metabolize cholesterol and keeps your tissues strong! It's so much better for you than normal pasta. 

I purchased this little gadget (below) called the Veggetti.  I wasn't sure how it would work, but I'm very pleased with the purchase.  It was well-priced, easy to use, and easy to clean!  

Within a few seconds (seriously, not even minutes), I had my zucchini noodles warming on the stove with a little minced garlic & a bit of olive oil.  I topped it off with a bit of tomato sauce for my son since he seems peculiarly attracted to tomato sauces hahaha.  I've added other veggies to it, and once I made a creamy cauliflower sauce.  I think next time, I'll try an asian noodle dish.  

Any other zucchini fans out there??
