Wise use of Time

"Look Carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil."
What verses lead up to today's verse of the day I wondered...How funny...is this the best use of my time...taking pictures of my broken sugar/Splenda bowl and trying to figure out how to use paint? (O'Donnels, you amaze me w/your paint talents!) At least I have given up drinking wine like verse 18 advises (too many carbs :-> ) I am thankful for the $3 wannabe Crocs I found at TJMaxx after Christmas and my new skillet Josh promptly hung up. Two other wise uses of time are making bar-b-que pizza and Zucchini Boats. Last summer Robin gave me some Key Lime Bar-B-Q Sauce that is absolutely wonderful and made unbelievable pizza (today's lunch).
Zucchini Boat Recipe
4-6 zucchinis washed, cut lengthwise
4 oz light cream cheese, softened (veggie cream cheese or chive is nice)
1/2 cup shredded pepper jack cheese (or Cheddar)
1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
Mix together cheeses and pepper
boil zucchini for 5 min, pat dry and scoop out pulp. My cheese mixture wasn't too soft this last time so I divided it by the number of "boats" I had and rolled a long clump in my fingers and plopped in the zukes. Place in a greased dish and bake at 350 for 10 min. I like to broil it for a second or two at the end to brown them. mmmmmmm
This recipe is based on the one in the Curves diet book by Gary Heavin.
Also love the stuffed mushroom recipe in it...made it last week too!
