Zucchini Bread and a Retro Apron

First of all, let me just say that posts will be a little off schedule this summer.  I will be honest, and say that I doubt I will post every day.  However, I will be posting as often as I have time and they might show up at any time of the day.  Typically, I get the posts ready the night before and they post at 5 am the next morning.  That works for me most of the time, but summer is just a whole ‘nother ball game!  So, please check back to see more projects as often as you have time, and I promise to post as often as I can.

I forgot that I hadn’t shown you the teacher gifts that I sent to the men teachers.  I made Zucchini bread this year, and it was a first for me.  We also made red/black tags (our school colors) with starts on them for the men.  I thought I’d share the recipe.  I doubled the recipe and it made 10 of these little loaves.  I took some to my in-laws and my sister/brother-in-law on Memorial Day and I got lots of compliments on the recipe.  So…….in case you want to make some, here it is!

Zucchini Bread


2 c. shredded zucchini

1 c. oil

3 tsp. vanilla

1 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. baking powder

1/2 c. nuts

3 eggs

2 cups sugar

3 cups flour

1 tsp. cinnamon

1 tsp. baking soda

Directions:  Mix dry indgredients and moist ingredients in separate bowls, and then combine.  Pour into 2 greased loaf pans.  Bake at 350 for 45 minutes to 1 hour.

I also wanted to show you the apron that I made for my Sister-In-Law who lives in Dallas.  I just wanted to make her something fun and surprise her……..she really doesn’t even cook all that much, but I knew she’d like the apron anyway!   It was made with McCall’s pattern M5643 and it is called “Retro Aprons”.  I bought my material and buttons at JoAnn’s Fabrics. 

She told me she loved the fabric so much…….she just wanted to eat it up! 

Hope you enjoy your weekend.  I will back on Monday and will start showing you the projects that we are making at our Club Classes next week.  Til then…….have a ton of fun!
