Anything is good, in moderation. I cook because I love to and because I can share with those around me. I crochet for the same reason.

Do what you want to do, enjoy what you do and use it to touch those around you.

Need something new to do with zucchini or a healthy meal that is nutritious and affordable?  Try this - even my Italian friends like it:

  1 Lb Ground Beef                                                                   1/2 Tsp Salt
  1 Tsp Ancho Chili Powder                                                       1/2 Tsp Ground cumin
  2 1/4 C Water                                                                          6 Ounce Angel Hair Pasta, broken
  14.5 Oz Diced Tomatoes                                                         -in thirds
  2 Tsp Chili powder                                                                  2 1/2 Cup Zucchini, cut into chunks
  1/2 Tsp Garlic powder                                                            

In a large skillet, heat oil and add ancho chili powder.  Add beef and cook over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Remove beef and keep warm. In the same skillet, combine the water, tomato's, chili powder, garlic powder, salt and cumin; bring to a boil. Stir in spaghetti; return to a boil. boil for 6 minutes.  Add the zucchini. Cook 4-5 minutes longer or until spaghetti and zucchini  are tender, stirring several times. Stir in the beef and serve.
