Lighter Fare

For today. Zucchini, I have lots of zucchini, which I have sauteed, frozen and baked. This large fella was hidden amongst the grass and leaves. I got two loaves and two quart freezer bags from this!

I tried a recipe from the web. It's good, but I like my old standby better. If you never try anything different, how are you to know what you already have is superior?

We are having a beautiful rain this morning. We can use it. I love the sound and smell of a soft rain. It has been missing for a couple of years, so it's really appreciated at a whole different level of joy.

I believe I will have a slice of this bread with my coffee and listen to the rain.


  1. mmmmmm.... looks yummy! I love zucchini and it does bake so well in cakes and loaves.

  2. Zucchini on the grill is wonderful. Cut it in half, brush with olive oil, sprinkle with garlic salt and pepper...YUM!

    Our favorite way is the unhealthy version though - dipped in an egg wash (with dill and garlic salt added) and breaded with cracker crumbs. Fry that up on the griddle...oh my God. THere is nothing better!

    Enjoy the bread. What a great idea - I think I will head up to the kitchen and use up some of my bounty!

  3. I have a great recipe for stuffed zucchini...yum yum!

  4. Queen - I WANT that recipe! :)

  5. I agree, grilled, sauteed, baked. All good. I have not had breaded zucchini, I will need to try that.

    I want Queens recipe to!

  6. That looks scrumptious - and I bet that is your homemade butter on it. What could be better!

  7. I confess, it's my homemade butter. It is yummy, but it adds to my ever expanding tummy!

  8. A soft rain, with some coffee and a piece of freshly baked bread sounds divine. I made a loaf of banana bread a few days ago, and took it to work since hubby really doesn't care for it. It was yummy!

  9. I like banana bread, too bad I'm a few states away!


I really appreciate the concept and sentiment behind awards, but I cannot participate in them anymore. I have too may and I have not got the time to devote to participating properly. To all who have honored me, I am grateful but I don't have seven more things to tell anyone about myself! And I'm a terrible passer-oner.
