Fall is here!

Well, winter is officially on its way. We woke up this morning to a windy 39 degrees, and unfortunately, it looks like snow for this weekend, so we'll see how that goes (cross your fingers, everyone!). Tyler got to try out his new snow gear this morning. The mittens seem to be going over well; he couldn't stop chewing on them. Something kind of funny happened on one of our runs this week: we were running past this older lady's house, like we do everyday, and on this particular day, she offered us some zucchini. I guess she had some extra from her garden this year, and we thought it was nice of her to offer. Well, she brought out this gigantic zucchini. This thing is the size of Tyler! One way or another, I ended up with the thing, so if anyone has any good zucchini recipes, let me know, pronto!

That zucchini is GIANT!!! You could make a HUGE loaf of zucchini bread. :) Or lots of little loaves, I guess. Kendy

How about this:

Camilla* Kimball's Zucchini Bread

1 C sugar
1 C brown sugar
3 eggs, beaten
2 cups grated zucchini
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1 cup nuts, chopped
1 cup oil
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
3 tsp cinnamon

Combine sugar, oil, eggs and beat until well blended.
Add zucchini and vanilla.
Sift dry ingredients and blend to rest.
Stir in nuts.
Pour into well greased and floured loaf pan or two small loaf pans.
Bake at 325 for one hour.

* Hinckley family trivia: If McKay had of been a girl instead of a boy, his name would have been Camilla after President Kimball's wife.

Tyler looks cute in his winter gear! If you still have any zucchini left, there's a great recipe for zucchini muffins on They're called "Super Duper Zucchini Muffins."
