Zucchini Bread

From: a hybrid between my mom, my aunt mollie, my BFF beth

2 eggs
1/2 c oil
1 c granulated sugar
1 c grated zucchini
1/2 t lemon juice
1 t vanilla extract
1/2 c chopped walnuts or pecans
1/2 t salt
1/8 t baking powder
1-1/2 c whole wheat flour (or substitute all purpose flour)
2 t ground cinnamon
1/2 t nutmeg
1/2 t baking soda

-Preheat oven to 350

-Grease loaf pan

-In a large bowl, BEAT eggs until light and frothy

-MIX in oil and sugar

-STIR in zucchini, lemon and vanilla

-COMBINE flour, baking soda, cinnamon, baking powder, nutmeg, salt, nuts

-STIR into egg mixture

-BAKE 45 minutes

MY NOTES: I combined my friend, beth's, recipe and my mom's - which was already a combination of her own and my aunt mollie's. I have to say, this turned out to be the best zucchini bread I ever wrapped my lips around! I added five more minutes to the bake time but that will vary no matter where you are. I also adjusted many of the measurements bc the original recipes were for two loaves and I only have one loaf pan. So instead of halfing quarter measurements I rounded up or rounded down.

Easy Peezy Dinner ideas

Lately, I've not had the energy to make a proper dinner. It was really hard for me to consider what to eat instead. Here are some options I finally came up with...

Loaded Potatoes
(with the leftovers of that) loaded hot dogs
Frozen pizza and salad
Spaghetti and frozen garlic bread
Sausages and cous cous (one of my hubs time favorite meals!)

then of course there is the old stand by: PB&J

Hope this helps you figure out what NOT to cook!
