Zucchini Boats, Bread and Top of the Morning to you!

Top-A Departure:
My husband made these stuffed zucchini boats the other evening.
They were filled with a tomato/panko breadcrumb and lima bean based stuffing. He put in a heaping amount of this said same stuffing and they were extremely tasty!
Yum. Yum. And yum-- like
totally. He's the dude in my book when it comes to creative vegetivity.

Thus far we have (also) had: 1. Zucchini thinly sliced in salad, 2. a cold pasta, zucchini and vegetable dish, 3. Zucchini cake (absolutely scrumptious I might add. It was a HIT and even with my kids...amazing-- for sure!)
Hey wee garden...keep them coming!!
Middle: Yesterday, I am so proud to announce, I made my first homemade bread completely and utterly by hand. I do have a bread maker, but the loaves come out oddly shaped and sometimes they just don't fully rise. Voila!!
:) Won't you join us?!
Bottom: The sunrise yesterday here with a light morning misting in the Appalachians...
:) Enjoy!!


  1. I will definitely join you! Great friends, great food, and great views! How could you ask for anything more? :)

  2. Ooh - I'll be right over. Except it is already gone I guess. Sigh. :) I'll bet that bread was good with some butter on it. Yum.

    And isn't it amazing how zucchini multiplies like loaves and fishes? It sounds as if you are making good use of it. I loved that Barbara Kingsolver memoir about living off the land and she said you would come home and someone would have hung a bag of zucchini on your mailbox and ran. :)


Please do...tell.
