Zucchini Bread

I of course haven't blogged in about 9 months and so much has happen but tonight I want to blog about my zucchini recipes.  It isn't mine actually it is one my Mom and Dad used to make back in the day when I was a little kiddo.  It is so delicious.  I make it every year when someone gives me the required humongous zucchini.  Without further ado:
Zucchini Bread:


list of ingredient's:
3 eggs
1 cup salad oil (i used canola)
2 cups c&h dark brown sugar, packed
2cups grated, raw unpeeled zucchini 
1 Tbs pure vanilla (I had imitation on had and flavor was still fabulous)
1 cup chopped nuts (I leave out due to allergies)
3 cups all purpose flour
1tsp each salt and baking soda

Beat eggs: add oil, sugar & zucchini, mix well.  Stir in the flour, salt & soda.  Fold in vanilla and nuts(if using)  Pour into 2 greased and floured loaf pans (9x5x3in).  Bake in 350 oven one hr.  Remove from oven and let sit for 5 minutes then remove from pans onto cooling rack.

I like to add about a cup of chocolate chips to the batter
I personally think this is the best one I have ever had but if you have a better one please feel free to share and I will try it out.

Christmas 2012

We had a nice, quite Christmas this year.  The boys were up at 7am and went out to see what Santa had brought.  They made out pretty well.  After that Connor passed out presents and they went to town.  They loved all their gifts.  Connor got a CSI kit and he played with it for quit a while.  He was really into looking at all the fun stuff and trying to figure out what they did.  They also both got an X-box game that they played for most of the day.  After presents we did our cinnamon rolls and sang "Happy Birthday" to Jesus.  It is something we started when Connor was really young and have done it ever since.  Both boys love doing it and look forward to it.    Since it was just the 4 of us I threw a beef stew in the crock pot and we had that for dinner.  At about 8pm I really wanted some pie but I hadn't gotten any so we bundled up and headed over to Shari's for some pie.  It was fun and I think we have started a yearly tradition.  This year was quite and very laid back and I loved it!!  Here are some pics of the day.  Hope you all had a very blessed Christmas also.
