Bearded Dragons and Baking Bread
You know you’re too busy when you’re still reporting on things that you checked off the list in February…
My friend Abby and I intended to ride a zipline set up in a Boston park by a Kissimmee, Florida, tourist organization one February weekend. But when I arrived 15 minutes before it opened and the wait was already two hours, we settled for having our photo taken with a baby alligator and holding a lizard called a bearded dragon. I pleaded with the handler to refrain from putting a large snake around my neck. (However, the snake was surreptitiously slipped around Abby’s neck.)
I was expecting the bearded dragon to be solid and rough, but it had a very soft underbelly. It was cute for a lizard.
And with no segue…I baked zucchini bread for the first time. My mom baked it once in a while when I was young so I feel nostalgic whenever I buy it at a cafe. I found her recipe for zucchini muffins (not bread, curiously) and spent a Sunday afternoon grating zucchini.
It turned out SO GOOD. I’m adding it to my baking rotation now.
You’ll be hearing from me again soon as I attempt to make up for lost time…
