If you listen close enough I think whispers of Marco can still be heard to this day floating over the pool with inevitable Polo replies hanging in the air. One classic game known to a select few would be bucking bronco. Perhaps not a well known … Read More Zucchini Casserole

I can’t take total credit for this recipe… I got the idea from a recipe on AllRecipes.com and then worked it a little to fit my needs. I use it with all sorts of variations. I like to roast the jalapeños for a richer flavor. I grow them in my garden and keep them in my freezer which makes handling a bit safer. It’s … Read More Chili Weather
