Or better still give it a shake and it ALL disappears like an Etch-a-Sketch.
How awesome would that be?!
I love Etch-a-Sketches!
There were tears here this morning.
And last night.
And then more......
They were mine.
Watching your children struggle is not pleasant.
Knowing that it is so much better for your kids in the end to NOT rescue them is one of the HARDEST things as a parent to do.
That teaching them resilience is what is best for them.
That teaching them to accept the consequences of their behaviour is what is best for them.
That teaching them to understand that their behaviour has ramifications is best for them.
But sometimes the best path is not the easiest.
In your head you know that you are doing IS the right thing.
Meanwhile your heart BREAKS.
And the tears are just sitting there on the edge caught by surface tension waiting to spill.........
Today is NOT going to plan.
No wonder I hate plans.
I totally suck at them.

In a griddle pan add a splosh of EVOO and leave the Zucchini to sit in the pan on medium heat for about 5 minutes per side- or until you can see the lovely char marks on the zucchini.
Turn and do the same to other side.
Repeat for all strips and set aside.
Place into a serving dish and crumble the fetta over.
Do same with the mint.
Now squeeze the lemon juice over and season generously with S &P.
