A few weeks ago we celebrated my 30th birthday. Yup....the big 3-0 folks. For once the hubs did not permit my nonchalant, "just another day" attitude that was my signature for every 20-something after I could legally get into a bar. He got together a group of friends and planned the perfect shindig - old school steakhouse followed by a tequila bar...the perfect combination of classy and scandalous. It was a night of delicious debauchery, but one that also blew out eating-out budget for the month. It was totally worth it, especially considering the awesome cheap eats that we can do at home to balance that big ticket night out a bit.

My very favorite thing about zucchini is its versatility. Grilled, sliced or shredded, it's a great addition to practically practically any savory or sweet dish. But from time to time, it's important to remember this veggie is flippin' fabulous all on its own and it deserves the full spotlight every now and again. Particularly when that light comes with panko and cheese.....yum.

I have always been a sucker for condiments. Ketchup, barbecue sauce, pickled jalapenos, tomato relish, pesto, creamed honey...if you can spread it, I can overindulge. Where most would be happy with a tablespoon or so, it seems I always need about a quarter cup to satisfy my craving. This is also the reason I hoard emptied food jars like a crazy person...it seems there are always more sauces like this delightful chimichurri that need to stored.

Cherry tomato season is finally upon us! May the feasting commence!!! Ever since I was a little girl picking veggies in our family garden, I have looked forward to the first fresh tomatoes of the year with the same anticipation most people reserve Black Friday. (Red...Wednesday? Why not!) Now my hubs is pretty darn terrific. Sure I've mentioned his culinary talents and yes, he is now officially a doctor. But there's a lot more to my man than that. For instance, he is also an avid reader, loves kids and has a die-hard fanbase in the online world of Tetris. But last week he topped the cake by bringing me the very first ripe tomato from our rooftop community garden. That's one heck of a man.

So remember that last post in which I alluded to fabulous Italian cuisine on the horizon? Perhaps I should have been a bit more exact with my timeline...for three weeks later not a recipe has been posted. Why? Well because these two foodies and our pup have relocated to beautiful Minneapolis, Minnesota!
