Wonky...

I'm all out of sorts this morning. As you know Mondays aren't my most inspirational days and today is no exception.

Nothing exciting happened this weekend to brag about. Unless you count a 15 minute trip to get ice cream on Saturday. Ooooooooh! Or a 30 minute trip to CVS yesterday. Ahhhhhhhh!

I know you're jealous.

Yesterday the teen left for band camp so S went up to help get the kids luggage unloaded & set up for their practices this week. That meant I had some free time just to myself.

And I don't know about you but when I've got some free time I like to get CRAZY.

Yeah right.

I ended up watching the The Next Food Network marathon & baking. See... I CAN still party. Just with flour, eggs & sugar.

I made another cherry cobbler, this Pineapple Zucchini cake (The Pioneer Woman herself recommended this one) and because I was still up to my elbows in shredded zucchini, I went ahead and made a Double Chocolate Zucchini bread.

Is there any wonder why I participate in TTFT?

Anyway tomorrow might be better.

But I wouldn't count on it.

Chocolate and Zucchini? Interesting.

Tomorrow will be better. I'm sure of it. For one thing... it's closer to Friday!

Mondays are always horrible. When I woke up this morning my hubby was like ... welcome to Monday. I swear, he's lucky he wasn't within slapping distance.

The goodies look good, and your weekend sounds relaxing. Nothing like taking some time just to unwind.

thanks for the ideas I too have too much zuchinni.

I don't think I could stay on track if I really liked to bake :-) But the pineapple zucchini looked like you could make it pretty healthy. Or at least not horrible. We obviously need to work on a ranch so that we can eat what PW cooks!

LOL... I watched that too, but I didn't bake. Too hot here and I was very unmotivated.

Yeah, The Next Food Network Star. Love that show!!!!

I want cobbler.

And chocolate.

No zucchini though. Well maybe with chocolate in a bread.

Everything you made sounds yummy! I watched the finale of Next Food Network Star and was happy Melissa won.

I'm afraid I'll get hooked if I start watching cooking shows, so I don't but I want to I realy want to

I LOVED the Next Food Network Star this year and was thrilled when Melissa won!

Zucchini is a new veggie for me. I don't know why but I haven't cooked with it much. But lately I've been sauteing it in olive oil with some garlic and yellow squash. Umm, I'm getting hungry!
