The Office

So... I work from home for part of my day and I found this great pic of the office on my camera yesterday! I am very lucky to have such a nice job with a great boss.
The company is 180 Networks and I answer the phones, schedule appointments, do the invoicing, run errands, and generally make my boss' life easier.

And in the afternoon...

I get to play with kids! I work at Zia Montessori Preschool as an aftercare assistant. I am currently working towards becoming more of a teacher to the little angels that I work with. We have a new director and she is giving some teacher training next week...I'm excited! She is also interested in having me take some more training to become Montessori certified and perhaps even begin taking classes for a teaching degree. What a nice compliment! I'll keep you posted.



Calabacitas means little squash

I made some this evening for the first time and man is it good!
My mother passed along a recipe from a friend and I ventured to try this delicious dish.

3-4 small zucchini
3-4 small yellow squash
1 med onion chopped
2 teaspoons garlic (preferably the kind you can buy in a jar)
green chile (bueno frozen)
fresh corn or box of frozen
2-3 tomatoes cut into large chunks
1- 1 1/2 pkgs shredded cheese (3 cheese variety works well)
olive or canola oil

slice zucchini and squash into about 1/16 inch slices - microwave in high 10 mintues
Add oil to large skillet till bottom is completely covered. Saute chopped onion until transparent.
Add garlic and chopped chile and saute together
Add squash and zucchini
salt and pepper to taste.

Cover and cook on med to low heat stirring frequently. If looks dry, add more oil. After about 15 min add corn. If frozen cook 15-20 min, less for fresh.

Add chopped tomatoes. Stir. Cook until tomatoes are hot.
Turn off heat
Add cheese

When cheese is melted it is ready to serve!

Makes great burritos and enchilada filling. Add beans or fried potatoes if desired!

Hope you like it as much as I did. Easy, fun, and most of all tasty.
