Golf Clap, Please



1. It's not my success... rather it's an incredible and humbling privilege... but my husband and I were asked to be godparents. It's my first godbaby! This child will be a canonized saint some day, mark my words.

2. Deciding to tackle the squash invasion head on, I made zucchini bread! It actually wasn't so great (I don't like zucchini bread in which you can actually taste the zucchini), but at least now I've got a recipe to work with and fewer green batons on my counter.

3. I walked out of WinCo (a grocery store in the NW) without having to sell my right arm. Yes, I had to refrain from buying a lot of stuff, but the self-restraint hurt less than it did last time. Maybe next time I won't even notice (maybe).

What a blessing to be godparents! I'm sure you'll be wonderful influences on your godbaby! God bless you!

I'm always on the lookout for zucchini recipes. Found a one on Cooks.com http://www.cooks.com/rec/view/0,164,151173-247197,00.html
and this one from King Arthur flour

I'm trying to be healthy with the whole grains and not turn a veggie into too much of a dessert.

Congratulations on being chosen as godparents. It's an honor indeed!

Good work sticking to that budget.

It IS an honor. We love it!!!!! Blessings to you and I'm thrilled for how the guidance I know you'll bestow on your Godchild.

Ask Peggy if she has Mom's zucchini bread recipe - it has pineapple and other surprises in it and is absolutely delightful (this from someone who doesn't normally care for zucchini or pineapple). There is also a similar dessert-y one that adds cocoa powder and chocolate chips. Mmmm...

Did you see Pastor Ryan's fried zucchini cakes on PW Cooks? Those look tasty. I've been wondering how they are...

And good job on self-restraint at the grocery store! That is one that I still struggle with sometimes. It doesn't help that I do a lot of my grocery shopping at lunch time.

Congrats to be God-parents! And I too have a good zucchini recipe, I just add a bit more sugar! Way to go budgeter!
