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!
2 c. shredded zucchini
1 c. oil
3 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 c. nuts
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.
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!
