with the stress of the last two weeks, i feel like this is much needed.
the problem being, that because of the stress we have endured lately,
we have nothing planned,
and i wasn't excited like i usually
get when it's VACAY time.
i normally am doing the happy dance everyday, the week before....but not so much this time....
we have had company stay with us for a few
nights, so that has kept us busy.
school starts tomorrow for the kiddies, and i am
the little peanut (well, MY little peanut) is a senior this year.
tomorrow is her first day of the last year of high school.
i want to cry.
for all of you who have little ones, or have no babies yet.....
so today, i made some peace with myself...(well, baking seems to soothe my soul) so i
zucchini bread AND zucchini casserole.
i had a zucchini we got a couple of weeks ago, calling out to be turned into some
type of deliciousness.
2 cups shredded zucchini
4 slices bread
1 large red onion
4 cloves garlic peeled and sliced / chopped
1 egg. beaten
1/2 cup heavy cream. yes. heavy cream. ( i made no mention this was a healthy recipe, did i???)
2 cups shredded cheddar
1/4 melted butter
preheat oven to 350'. cut bread into cubes and pour into large mixing bowl. add melted butter. combine rest of the ingredients, with the exception of the cheese. pour into prepared 2 quart casserole. sprinkle with cheese..... bake for approximately 30 minutes or until heated through and cheese is melted. i let mine get somewhat bubbly on top and brownish.
this is the easiest side dish and actually for being full of a veggie, tastes delish. the smell of the onions and garlic while baking is heaven. no lies, peeps!
and this to line it with:
they have a TON...and so hard to choose.
