Lunch at the Gelato Company downtown proved to be a quite nice. Good salad and panni with old world look and old school music.

Happy Wednesday!



Good morning and a very happy  National Zucchini Bread Day GLOBers.  The GLOB Master has never enjoyed zucchini bread. Hmmm . .. .  maybe I can find some at the farmers market today. Were you aware of the fact that  explorers who came to the Americas brought back what they considered strange foods, including the zucchini.  The zucchini eventually found its way to Italy where it was named zucchini .  Native American referred to zucchini as “something eaten raw.” However, we all know that zucchini tastes best cooked, especially in bread.



Speaking of zuchinni GLOBers It's Union St. Downtown Farmers Market Wednesday and Market Elder Charlie Lybrand is seeing more squash at the market than you can shake a frying an at.
