Friday Favs!

Happy FRIDAY!! it is time for friday favs.. that means I got in 2 posts in 2 days.. blogging life is funny I go 9 days with no posts and now I think I can post 9 times in 2 days! HA! But I wont!! Gotta save some stuff!!

TOMORROW is PTIs blog hop! Oh I HOPE I can play.. BUT I am not ready.. AND we are taking out the boat.. so I dont know if I can make it in this month! BOO.. I will for SURE be checking in on sunday to see what everyone else shared... they are so FUN and ALWAYS INSPIRING!! :)

On with my Favs!!! My friend Joni likes to do a theme to her friday favs.. so I am gonna take that idea and BORROW it this week!! My friday favs are going to be

I have it coming out of my ears here! Ok not my ears ... but the garden!!

The zucchini plant grew so big.. it blocked my onions and carrots.. BUT we did get the zucc., lettuce, and STRAWBERRIES>. (those buggers take over EVERYTHING too! LOL!) anyway... here are the 2 I picked last week! (that long one is LONGER then Justin was when he was born! LOL!!) More are growing!!

Here are some of the goodies I made up using ALMOST ONE of them! :)
Zucchini parm... this is just something I made up.. trying to eat REALLY WELL.. and get into those shorts that are all dusty! :)
I just sprayed the zucc. slices with cooking spray.. and coated them with panko bread crumbs..broiled them.. topped with homemade sauce and a bit of fresh parm. cheese.. YUM!

Made up THIS recipe choc. chip zucchini bread/ was so good! I did add some honey to it!

Oh and I also made up THIS salad.. YUM-O.. it is soo good I made it all last summer.. and am again this summer! it is so easy.. you can add ANYTHING really you want to it.. I am going to add some shrimp for dinner one night.. I do make the dressing a bit different.. I use THIS (sorry no link!) from Trader Joes.. it is Sesame Soy Ginger Vinaigrette.. I add a TINY bit of olive oil, tiny bit of chili oil, pepper, lime and garlic... YUMMY!

and finally I made this up yesterday.. Zucchini Hummus it is from Tosca Renos Eat Clean Cookbook! as always I had to change it! I didnt have the tahini so I used some lowfat greek yogurt with a drizzle of sesame oil mixed in it! , and I had no parsley.. I didnt make the full recipe.. since it is just probably me gonna eat it! It was soooo GOOD.. gonna use some on my turkey sandwich! :) I know you ALL wanted to know that! :)

  6. That zucchini parmesan sounds good. And now all of us remember how to spell zucchini!
