I've Picked My Friends

The Mr and I spent last week in Ireland for a friend’s wedding, and as one would imagine, the experience was magical.

It was also full of whiskey and Guinness. I have absolutely no complaints.

Of course while we were gone our vegetable garden was left to it’s own devices. And my, oh my…. did it have some fun.

Primarily, the zucchini…

It’s like that scene in Dirty Dancing. “I carried the zucchini.”

I mean… what the heck am I supposed to do with these??? A girl can only make and eat so much Zucchini bread. Or Zucchini muffins. I mean… do I take them to the state fair?

No.

The Mr had to go into the office the day I harvested these, so I was left at home to my own devices, and like a good wife I decided to make something with them that I could surprise him with.

But I’m me, and as many of us know, cooking is not my strongest skill.

So…. Instead I went with something a little bit more…. romantic.

The Mr said I would never use that top-hat by the way. WRONG AGAIN, THE MR.

I don’t know why she suddenly looks so unsure… Look alive, lady, IT’S YOUR WEDDING DAY.

I was going to just let The Mr see them when he got home, but I was too excited about my new friends, so I texted him the above photo.

The Mr: You need to see someone.

Me: What? They’re cute!

The Mr: Absolutely. But it is clear that you require human contact at least once per day. You’re literally making friends out of produce. because you haven’t seen another human being today.

Me: You don’t know that.

The Mr: Oh really? Who is with you?

Me: ZACK AND ZARA ARE HERE.

The Mr: Is that what you named the zucchini?

Me: No… it’s what they told me their names are.

The Mr: I’m leaving work early.
