Well at least I am going to try to bring it back!  Let me know if you are in!!

It all started back in October or November.  One food blogger would name an ingredient, and people would submit recipes on their blogs posting back to the BSI (Blogger Secret Ingredient) host and a winner would be chosen at the end of that week.  The last host has been bogged down with work obligations and hasn’t named a winner for the last contest.  So I thought I would just jump start it since I know I had a  lot of fun with it!  You can see the history here: http://stevianspice.wordpress.com/tag/bsi/

So I am picking ZUCCHINI.  I love zucchini because you can make it savory or sweet and they are great both ways!   Here’s the deal:  submit a recipe to me by either posting the recipe on your blog and emailing me at bdl319@gmail.com so that I can keep track of the recipes.   If you don’t have a blog, just email me the recipe and I’ll put it on mine.  Submit recipes starting tomorrow and I will do a wrap up post on Sunday, January 25 and pick a winner on Monday, January 26.   Update:  The prize will be a $20 gift card to Whole Foods!

Lunch was a lot of fun today!  It’s nice to catch up with friends!   Here are D & D!  Our friends of 32 years!

they are fraternal but they look identical!

And me and my sister – I am on the right:


After some suggestions, I did end up getting the chicken wrap on the appetizer menu – it was awesome!  My pics didn’t turn out that great – not enough light and the flash was kind of obnoxious!


They had the best cucumbers on the side – kind of vinegary (if that is even a word!) and with sesame seeds:


So Hannah was shopping while we ate.  We met her after lunch and went into Urban Outfitters.  That place is rediculously expensive and gaudy.   Hence the pants you are about to see – and these were $68!   Hannah was too busy shopping to eat, I thought she’s pick up something from the food court.  I bought her a vanilla bean bubble tea from from Chill Bubble Tea.  She loves tapioca and I’d never seen a place for them around us before.  She said it was amazing!!  

these may become my goal pants to fit into - NOT!

I am off to watch Dexter on DVD.  Apparently my step-son got hooked on it – its on Showtime.   He ended up going to blockbuster and rented the whole first season for Tony to watch.  Since they are watching football, Hannah and I are off to watch the first episode. 

Come back for classic roast beef and mashed potatoes tonight!
