Weekly Recap + Italian Flag Veggies Recipe

Happy weekend, all!

I, for one, am thrilled that it’s the weekend. Or at least I was until my cat woke me up at 6:30 this morning…

On a high note, I managed some form of workout at least 4 days this week! I hit the gym Wednesday morning, played hockey on Thursday and Saturday, and broke down an event set up at work on Friday. I was so sore after putting away all the tables, chairs, and large pieces of vinyl flooring we put out to cover our gym floor. It was a lot of work in a little time, so I’m counting it as a cardio/weight lifting session, damn it!

I’ve also gotten a little better this week about writing down my meals. I’m trying to write it into my bullet journal now with a short blurb about how I feel as well. I’m trying to make sure I eat enough of the right foods, but I think only my body can really tell me how it feels about the sustenance I’m getting. Let’s get on to the recap, shall we?

Italian Flag Veggies

Italian flag veggies are one of my favorite things my mom used to make for us when my brother and I were younger. It’s so simple and quick, but makes a wonderful side dish. I made a huge pan of it the other night.

  • 2 zucchini
  • 2 yellow squash
  • 3 plum tomatoes
  • Bread crumbs
  • Parmesan cheese

Preheat the over to 400º. I lined a cookie sheet with foil and sliced my veggies into rounds about 1/4 of an inch thick. I basically made stripes on the pan with the veggies; a line of yellow squash, then a line of zucchini, then a line of tomatoes, then start over with the yellow squash… You get the idea. Once those were laid out, I covered each round with bread crumbs and parmesan cheese. I baked this for about 20 minutes and it comes out all melty, but kind of crispy, and so so yummy.

What is your favorite childhood side dish?
