Enough with the Zucchini

Farmer Brown rolled his eyes when he came home last night. From three medium zucchini, I made Lemon Poppy Seed Zucchini Bread, Frosted Zucchini Brownies, and Zucchini Cakes. These recipes can all be found here: http://realmomkitchen.blogspot.com/search/label/zucchini. I also have made the Lemon Zucchini Cookies from there.

This first picture is of the poppy seeds that I spilled all over the counter. Those little boogers rolled everywhere. I am still walking on them this morning. I must say that the Lemon Poppy Seed Zucchini Bread made for some first-rate batter eating. The same thing can be said about the brownies.

The Zucchini Cakes were a hit because dinner was dubbed "Dip-o-Rama". We had chicken fingers from a WW recipe (they were gross and soggy), and the kids dipped them in barbecue sauce. Then, we dipped the zucchini cakes in ranch dressing.

We each had a brownie for dessert. We liked the bread, but those brownies were fabulous! I didn't make the frosting because I was out of marshmallows and chocolate chips. (I even cleaned out the cabinet because I was sure I had chocolate chips. All I found was spilled corn syrup. So then, I had to take everything out to clean that up, and I freaked out because there were things that looked like mice poo. On further inspection, it was just some spilled mini-chocolate chips. Thank goodness.) I did find chocolate frosting in the cabinet. I used that and Frick decorated them with star sprinkles that we also found. We also found FIVE bags of powdered sugar.

And since the subtitle of this blog is OF FAT, just so you know, I don't eat all of this stuff that I make. Most of it gets sent to friends who will tolerate a dry bread if the recipe doesn't turn out. I have also been sending food to work with Farmer Brown. I made this lovely tray for the city workers last night and here it was this morning. I think that Farmer Brown subconsciously left it here because he is tired of the zucchini. Surprise, we are taking him lunch and this tray.
