I've been given a lot of zucchini lately. I'm not complaining though, I love it. Mostly, I've been fixing suppers and zucchini bread with it, but I've run across some new recipes that sound pretty good so I'm trying those out on my family and neighbor. My neighbor grew a huge organic zucchini plant this year and has gotten 14 fairly large zucchinis off of it. This is so great, cause the ones I was seeing in the stores were pretty small.
Tonight I baked zucchini-oatmeal chocolate chip cookies ....
(Once the batter was mixed according to the directions, I noticed it was a little runny, but I let it set for a few minutes ,remixed and it seemed to thicken up just fine.)
As you can see, I finally figured out how to post pictures on my blog posts again, but I haven't figured out how to size them. So, for now they will just be bigger. I haven't found any sizing options on the app I'm using..but I will keep messing with it:) Crazy I know , right? Oh well, I have missed blogging , and am just glad things are working out however slow.
I found this recipe on Pinterest and decided to give it a try. It was a big hit with my family, and it's now on my husbands list of favorites.
I get bored making the same things all the time. This is one thing that technology has made easier for me. I tweeked the recipe a bit, using what I already had on hand or more to our liking.
I substituted sliced (drained ) carrots instead of corn , added sliced and drained mushrooms & used large butter beans instead of white kidney beans ...which I could not find here. Turned out wonderful.
The meat and pasta are added just before serving..so I kept the noodle separate. I didn't like them in mine but everyone else did. So they added what they wanted to their own serving. Worked out good for everyone. I also wasn't sure how noodles would freeze so I left them out of the portions to be frozen.
I also made homemade garlic butter and toasted some kieser rolls. Way better than saltine crackers with the soup!
