Fall Cara Box

Cara Box
Hello!  I participated in the fall Cara Box and got matched up with 2 great ladies: Merry and Linae!  I received a great box from Merry.

Merry hit on all my favorite things: baking, reading, the color red, delicious smelling candles!  Thanks Merry for the great goodies.  I especially look forward to baking something.  I need a new recipe with ramekins!

Cara Box Reveal!!

Cara Box

This month I participated in something new (to me): the Cara Box exchange on the Wifessionals Blog.  You can paired up with a couple fellow bloggers and exchange a box of goodies.  The theme this month was seasons of life- you got paired up with someone who is in the same place in their life.
Contents of my box: photo book, baking goods, romance novel and card
 got paired up with Rabia and Danielle.  I was really impressed with what Rabia sent me and even more impressed once I read the great note she included.  She took the time to include items that were specific to me and what I enjoy doing (cooking, baking, reading). I will definitely be participating again, and I like that it's now every 3 months even more.  There's more time to think and plan.
Great guilty pleasure reading

What do I do with this Zuchini?

A couple weeks ago, my husband brought a zucchini as big as a house. There are so many things sweet and savory you can make with this veggie - ultimately - here's what I've done:
  • Chocolate Zucchini cake - this was a very unique dish, using olive oil instead of butter.  Recipe from Food Network.
  • Breaded zucchini  
  • Zucchini tacos - my own creation
Ground beef
Summer squash
Taco seasoning
1/2 can of butternut squash soup (or tomato sauce)

I served this with chips, shredded cheese, and lettuce- but you could do tortillas, sour cream or tomatoes!

  • Sautéed zucchini as a side dish
