Alone Again Sunday
Visit Beth Fish Reads each Saturday for collected links to blog posts about cookbooks, recipes, restaurants, and other culinary adventures
This week I was by myself on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and now most of Sunday. My DH is working on getting his mother's house ready to sell. I thought I would get bunches accomplished. But I did not. I got to my water aerobics class everyday except Friday morning. I did household chores. We have company coming next weekend. So I need to spiff up the guest bedroom and make sure the guest bathroom is presentable. I read, and was on the internet. Thursday however I did bake. That is unusual for me at this time. I used to bake all the time, but now with just 2 of us, I don't do it as much. A friend gave me some zucchini, so I decided to make zucchini bread. I grated one of the squash that she gave me and got 4 cups. My recipe called for 2 cups of grated zucchini to make 2 loaves. So I froze the remainder. Then Friday, when I was expecting my DH home, I looked for a Zucchini Casserole recipe online. I finally decided on one from the Food Network. Neely's Zucchini Gratin. Since I usually tweek recipes as I go, I cut the garlic down, only used 1/2 an onion, 1 large zucchini cut in bite-size slices, and yellow cheddar mixed with asiago cheese. It was really good. I don't have a picture of the casserole, but should have taken one, because it was pretty to look at too.
