This is a sponsored post. I was compensated financially by USA Rice. All thoughts and feelings and opinions about rice are entirely my own. As always, I wouldn't tell you about a product unless I loved it.
I didn't grow any zucchini this year. In fact, I didn't grow much of anything except pots of herbs and 3 tomatoes. No, not tomato plants. Tomatoes, singular. I'm not sure why the heck my tomatoes did not flourish, but I have an inkling it's because my yard has become tremendously shady over the past couple of years. Veg hate shade, that's a known fact. Good thing I'm dating a vegetable farmer so there has been no shortage of tomatoes, or zucchini or anything else that grows in the ground around here. If I were an emoji right now, I'd be the one with hearts for eyes.

Good gracious, is it me or is this year flying by? Canadian Thanksgiving is this weekend, and yes, we've had our first flakes of snow fall here in Saskatoon. I see you shudder with disbelief. Now you know how I feel! Flannel sheets are now on the bed, and the furnace is now my friend. Which reminds me, I need to change the filters. Fall house maintenance. It's a thing. Next up is raking all of the leaves (once the snow melts) and my fella has offered to clean out my eaves for me. What a guy. There may just be an apple fritter in it for him. That's right. I said apple fritters! I made them recently for an article I was writing and they were so delicious they left me without coherent words. Only sounds of complete and utter satisfaction were able to leave my lips. Tasty treats, those apple fritters. Find the recipe here.
