Baking Day

My friend Stephanie from California is coming to visit tomorrow. We used to work together many moons ago and I haven't seen her in about two year. We are going to do wine and canvas, take the kids to see Cars 2 and then just.... ya know, visit!

I asked Stephanie was her favorite cookie was and she said sugar cookies cause they taste like Christmas. Geez, that's easy. So here are some sugar cookies for Steph, ready for the oven...

Yes if you come from out of town to visit, I might make you cookies. That's how I roll.

Here's the simple sugar cookie recipe I followed. I was too lazy to ice them so I rolled them in sugar for good measure.

And then I moved on to this bounty. 4 zucchinis freshly picked from the garden and grated.

Half of it went into making 4 loaves of bread. Half of those loaves will go into the freezer. The other half of the pulp was tightly wrapped in cling wrap and Ziploced for future usage.

(I learned the hard way that it must be tightly wrapped....freezer burnt zuc pulp is a sad sight).

Hoping to get some zucchinis from our garden this year....I've never made zucchini bread, but am hoping that this is the year!
