Second day of gratitude

oops - i nearly forgot about doing this.  and it's only the second day!  i hope i can keep it up.

this morning i've been feeling a little harried trying to make plans for the coming month.  there are a few friends i'm trying to get together with and it's being difficult to coordinate our schedules.  not only that, there are some friends i have a few projects going with - cooking, goal setting, writing/editing, not to mention the tutoring i've recently begun at the local elementary.  when something gets a bit frustrating i try to remind myself what life would be like without it.  i am MOST definitely grateful for friends, but today i think i'll focus more on being grateful for friends that are anxiously engaged in good work and motivate me through their examples and encouragement and just plain inclusion.  i like keeping busy with good things, and i can't imagine a life without so many good people in it that make all those good things possible.  now the trick is to make sure i stay true to my values and don't just get busy for busy's sake.

now back to the kitchen with me where i'm attempting to make mock crab cakes using shredded zucchini.  yep - i found it on the web.

Good luck with the crab cakes.
I just made potato-leek-zucchini pancakes for dinner! And blackberry applesauce. The pancakes were yummy, except for the overload of salt I accidentally put in... Oh well. Definitely a meal to repeat- without so much salt.

i'm not good at frying any sort of patty. they came out a bit oily and fell apart more than i would have liked, but they were still tasty and i think had a lot of potential. :) i halved the recipe and didn't have the right flavoring ingredients but i liked what i created!
