gg-girl's Journal, 13 January 2013

Sunday,

I will be trying a new twist on an old favorite recipe today. Chocolate/raspberry Zucchini cake. How many ways can I use up the seemingly endless zupply of zucchini I have frozen? Not sure, but so far, nobody has complained...LOL! Sometimes these ideas just come to me, so we are going to roll with it today.

Wisconsin has officially re-entered the deep freeze today, which for me is good. Freeze that lake back up good & solid, I do worry about those crazy fishermen out there. I think that Sturgeon spearing season starts soon too, & last year if I remember we didn't have ice. Anyway, back to the totally selfish reason, I like the lake frozen good & solid, then some nice snow to blanket it with, along with all the lovely snowmobile trails.

I do love cozy Sunday morning big breakfasts, I do, I do, I do! Nice & snug & warm in the house. So that is the plan, breakfast, followed by a little baking creativity session so we have a wonderful dessert to go with our baked ham dinner. Going to try a mashed cauliflower dish using olive oil, garlic, chives & romano cheese I found on pinterest, the original recipe was for mashed potatoes, but I am going for cauliflower version...it sounds totally delish, so I am excited about that too.

So, I have to get going, lots of laundry to do yet, cleaning & getting prepped for work next week. A couple more days yet of the super tough variety to get through yet, but, work wise, I can see the glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel...maybe.


I hope you all enjoy your Sunday as best as you can.

Sounds like a productive day, GG, AND an interesting recipe. I just finished making spicy bean sprout soup for my korean bf for breakfast. i'm hoping to make an eggplant salad this afternoon for me! Have a great day.

That sounds yummy, I love taking something and giving it a healthier twist. I would love a dash of snow, the forecasters say the UK is in line for a blanket covering, though here in the south we rarely get any. You also reminded me to get my work uniform in the wash...lol

GG, I miss having a nice big freezer to keep excess soups, veggies, and meat on hand. Oh well.....maybe the next house. Anyway, I'm sure that dessert will be a hit....at least it sounds really good to me! Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

For your sake I'm happy that you'll have a little more time to enjoy your winter wonderland. As for me, I am rather enjoying having the back door open to air out the house with these 70 degree breezes.
