Don't Try This At Home

Exercising in the Hood

History will record that I'm not the MOST fit person in Colleywood. A bum foot with more titanium than a new set of Callaways will do that to a person.

I dunno Doc, sometimes I feel like I'm walking on pins and needles. Wait a minute...turns out I AM walking on pins and needles

Bob's Foot-350.jpgI do try and live a reasonably healthy lifestyle. And after extensive research I've learned that moderate exercise may not help me live longer, but it will help me die slower. So I've got that going for me. 

My day typically begins with a four-mile walk inside the bubble that houses Colleywood and Baja Colleywood (you know it as Euless). It's an urban/residential mix and my only wildlife sightings are what I see on the sidewalks, streets and parking lots.

Full disclosure, I've seen the coming of the lard and it's delicious...

There's a pattern here. I see the same "types" of people every day. The seasons change...the outfits are constantly changing, but the people...well, I've identified 4 distinct groups.

Here's the Dish

Skillet Zucchini Parmesan

In Texas, we enjoy fresh zucchini year-round. So I'm all about finding new ways to prepare this green, cucumber-lookalike.

Here's one of our latest favorites. It's super simple because you need only seven ingredients. Actually, make that five - zucchini, tomato, Parmesan cheese, chives and olive oil - because the other two are salt and pepper. And they shouldn't even count!

Great for weeknights when you're short on time (like always!), this yummy, stovetop side or vegetarian main dish comes together in under half an hour. You just slice some zucchini and mix it with diced, fresh tomato and dried chives. Then sauté the medley in olive oil until the zucchini is tender crisp and has absorbed most of the tomato juice.

Then toss on some Parmesan cheese for an Italian-inspired treat. Anything but boring, it's a vegetable the whole family will adore.

We like this stovetop sensation with crusty bread and grilled chicken or fish. But it works well with just about any basic main dish.

I Was There Too

Have you ever seen a movie and thought, "I wish I could've been there when they filmed that..." C'mon, wouldn't you have loved seeing Spielberg shoot the face-melting-Nazi scene in Raiders of the Lost Arc...or been a fly on the wall during Meg Ryan's infamous, I'll-have-what-she's-having shot in When Harry Met Sally.
