Zucchini Corn Bacon Fritters and Jan 2019 FOTW

HEY HEY HEY you found me! Happy New Year, yes yes I know. It's already the eighteenth but it's still the first month of the new year. How many times have you written or typed 2018?

Welcome to the first edition of Fly On The Wall for 2019. WOW, remember the Prince song 1999? Of course you do, I mean who can forget anything that man sang...whew HOT baby! Okay before my mind runs amuck let's talk about 1999. It was TWENTY years ago! WHAT 2 0, two zero, ten two times, five four times, holy smokes Bat Man where has the time gone?

Any who... let's progress on shall we. How about a great side dish? A simple but delicious dish that still keeps me in my healthy/WW goal for the day. Oh yes but before I forget, this is Fly On The Wall. So you'll see blurbs about my day, conversations, and photos of things that have been happening since our last post of fly stuff. AND at the end of the post you'll find links to the other bloggers post as well. Buzz over and see what they've been up to.

Zucchini Corn Bacon Fritters (I know you read bacon and thought how can this be healthy, everything in moderation)
This photo is the first batch, no bacon in case you're wondering.

1 medium zucchini, grated and squeezed this removes the excess water and helps the patties stick,otherwise they are too wet
1 small yellow squash, same as the zucchini
green onion, 2 diced both white and green parts
1 medium carrot, same as zucchini
1/2 cup mixed white/yellow corn, I used frozen and thawed it out and drained
1 egg
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, fresh and grated
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup panko bread crumbs
Mix all the ingredients together and cook in a non stick skillet until each side is golden brown. I forgot to put the bacon in the first  batch and then forgot to take a photo of the second batch. LOL yep, they were delicious and we thoroughly enjoyed them. The mixture made 9 patties approximately 2 1/2 inches in diameter. You could make them smaller or bigger, add two zucchini instead of one zucchini and a squash. It's entirely up to you. Be sure to mix the ingredients well and I let mine sit for about five minutes, it makes it all sticky and it holds together better. Be sure to pat them out and not make them thick, otherwise it will be gooey in the middle.

I was in the park walking one morning last week and as I rounded the 25 feet tall tree, that had been used for Christmas, I was busy, singing to myself and BOO this stupid little squirrel scared me. I wasn't expecting to see him. You can't tell from the photo but he is about 12 inches high and was tied to the end of a branch. I'm sure some teenager put it there, laughed at myself for jumping. Maybe he's there to keep the real ones out of the Christmas ornaments. Who knows.

All of my kitties, not just Ms. Lily, love boxes. We bought them perfectly good comfy beds for Christmas and WHERE does she sleep? In a box that I tossed on the floor to throw out. Now I can't. Well, I could but she looks so comfy.

"Since supper is a big heavy meal and in two hours. Would anyone be interested in dessert?" I already knew the answer would be yes but had to ask.
Jesse. "So you’re fixing dessert now?"
Me. "Are you interested?"
Jesse. "So again. You’re fixing dessert now?"

Hubby trying a new hot sauce.
"Oh good flavor but not hot."
Picks up fork.
"OH DAMN there’s the heat!!"

Beau, my writing helper, or at least he thinks so.

Top Left my new necklace, a Christmas gift from hubby
Top Right, Sugar, he will sleep on anything.
Middle Left, the new coffee maker I NEED, yes need.
Middle Right, yes I did it, I did the dreaded thing. I joined the gym.,
Bottom Left, a hawk, WAY up in the tree.
Bottom Right, a doe who wandered up to our apartment. She was really big.

My office chair was in desperate need of repair, so my hubby, who does upholstery on the weekends, redid my chair. I picked out the fabric and he said "are you sure?" I said YES! I love it. 

Is it just me or do you wander around the grocery store looking for something new to try, or something odd, you say "HEY LOOK AT THIS". No? Just me? Oh's what I found recently

And another one...okay, no sugar- fine, jalapeno-fine, sriracha-fine, but SLIME? A throwback to the Nickelodeon days I guess.

On one of our weekend day trips we found this great old fashioned candy and soda shop. My son loved it, here are some of the interesting sodas we found. Some he bought, some not.
Be sure to visit Karen and Carol.
