yes, i know that's a common theme here at Clarity in Creation.... i'm ok with that.
let's go tarheels!
... which was wonderful, until i got the burning desire to use up the zucchinis from mom's garden.
literally, they're storming our house.
we are overrun by zucchinis, and it's only getting worse by the day!
anyone need any veggies!?! please!?!??!
well, until then, i will eat them faithfully.
i will saute them, i will roast them, and i will bake with them.
as you can see, i made two batches.
one batch as is, but used a muffin pan, and a healthier batch for my mom's breakfast, baked in a loaf pan.
for the healthier version, i used 1/2 the sugar, and substituted whole wheat.
much to my chagrin, mom didn't want chocolate chips, either. strange.
because i'm late for a lunch date, visualize:
both were really good!
i ate one of the muffins and was sugar buzzin' for hours, and not shockingly, i preferred the whole wheat kind.
just so you know, when i make "treats," they are usually for my boyfriend or my 16-year-old brother. both of them are pretty hardcore athletes, and a little natural sugar won't kill them. for some reason, they aren't quite as interested in "that healthy stuff" as i am... go figure :)
also, on the rare occasion i eat dessert, i don't feel the need to try to make it healthy... it's dessert for crying out loud! no shame.
(not that i have a problem with healthy desserts - i just don't feel guilty if i eat a "naughty" one, capishe?)
do you grow your own veggies?
and what the heck do you do with all your zucchini!?!?!?
