Sad news (for me anyway). Little boy #1 dropped our camera a few days ago and messed up the lens. I thought it was out of his reach, but apparently I was WRONG. Fortunately, the manual focus still works, but auto focus does not. Sad. Does anyone have a Canon Rebel XTi standard lens they want to get rid of? Just kidding. Sort of. 😉
Onto happier things…
I made a zucchini-apple bread the other day and it was yummy. I’d been wanting to make zucchini bread but only had one zucchini, so I added a grated apple and it worked perfectly. Calla and I just finished off the last two pieces of bread this morning!
1/2 c. butter, softened
1 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 medium zucchini, grated (appx. 3/4 cup)
1 medium apple, grated (appx. 3/4 cup)
1/4 c. plain yogurt OR sour cream
2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
Preheat oven to 350. Cream butter and sugar in a large bowl. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well. Stir in zucchini, apple and yogurt. Combine all five dry ingredients in a medium bowl; add to creamed mixture and stir until combined. Pour into greased 9×5″ loaf pan and bake 60-65 minutes. Let cool in pan 5-10 minutes, then transfer to wire rack to cool completely.
Try not to eat it all in one sitting. 🙂
