It’s a three day weekend, so I’m being productive at least one of the days!
Today I ran/walked the puppy to the dog park (almost 1 1/2 miles), where she ran around with 10 of her best friends for 45 minutes, and then we ran/walked home (mostly walked, the humidity was kind of crazy).
When we got home I decided to try my hand at a recipe I found online. Basically when you belong to a CSA, you have more zucchini than you know what to do with. So, I’ve decided to bake random foods I can eat with it.
I took those + 2 eggs (not pictured) and made:
They rose nicely enough (and look better than the picture, I am not a food-porn photographer). I forgot the chocolate chips until they were already in the oven and added them quickly (I burnt my hand and obviously dropped some in the wrong place).
Overall, I like the recipe. Latte feels it’s not sweet enough, but it’s not really supposed to be sweet. When she uses the zucchini, she can make something sweet with it.
Will I make it again? Probably not. It uses Justin’s Chocolate Hazelnut Butter, which is $6.49 when it’s on sale, so that makes it kind of pricey to make. If I find a cheap almond butter, I may make the paleo version of it.
Other than that, we got some shopping done, we got a door for the area that’s going to become the nursery (hopefully!!!!), and I got a replacement desk chair (my old one betrayed me Friday, and caved in, unexpectedly when a screw decided to pop out and not ever go back in- it’d a director-style mesh chair, so I’m surprised it lasted over two years).
The only not great thing is that Latte seems to be in a mood today. But she was up with the puppy for a few hours in the early morning when the neurotic friend of one of our roommates came over, and decided that cuddling with the dog would make her feel better (Puppy wasn’t a fan of someone she didn’t know well approaching her crate in the middle of the night). The girl is very nice, but a bit needy and nutty.
CD 1 will come in a week. It’ll be good to be able to try again. Ginger Jesus, I hope your specimen live up the the nickname we gave you!
I hope everyone’s having a good weekend!
