Zucchini Bread

At the school I work at we are part of a vegetable grant from USU. The students, from USU, were at our lunch today giving samples of zucchini bread and recipes as well. It was really good. The recipe that they used was from The site has Mom's Pineapple-Zucchini Bread recipe as well. I am a fan of pineapple in just about everything so if you click on the recipe name you can view that one too. Do you have a favorite recipe? With or without zucchini? Share it with us in the comments.

Magic Jack - Phone Service

What is Magic Jack? It is a new choice for phone service. The Magic Jack is an extremely small USB telephone adapter that allows you to make telephone calls through a regular phone for free. This includes local and long distance calling to the US. All you have to do is pay a one time fee of around $40 to get the Magic Jack USB adapter and then your first year of service is free. It is then $19.95 each following year. You do need a high speed internet connection to use this service.

My husband and I are currently using the Magic Jack service and we are overall happy with it. We do get a digital stuttering every now and then but not too bad. Another downside for us was that we had to get a new phone number. The company said that later this year they should be able to use your current phone number. Overall we are happy. Click here to read more about the service.

We bought our Magic Jack adapter at Best Buy for $39.99. You can check out the official Magic Jack site and decide for yourself if you are interested. I don't think it is perfect but it has been a good alternative for pricing for us.

Make Your Own Laundry Soap

So my friend, Ginger, was on Facebook and saw a posting from a friend about making her own laundry soap for $8 and it makes quite a bit. She emailed me the recipe so that I can share it with everyone. I Googled each of the ingredients and if you click on each one you will see what I learned. Each ingredient sounds great and useful for more than just washing your laundry. I have several months of laundry soap in my storage but I can't wait to try it. These are items you should be able to find in your local store. If anyone has ever tried this before let us know how well it works.

1 Fels Naptha Bar
20 Mule Team Borax
Arm and Hammer Washing Soda

Grate 1/3 of Fels Naptha Bar with cheese grated. In large pot bring 6 cups water to boil. Add grated soap. Let dissolve. Add 1/2 cup borax and 1/2 cup Washing Soda. Let boil 10 minutes on medium heat.

In a 2 gallon bucket, mix together 4 cups of boiling water and the soap mixture above. After mixing, add 22 cups water.

Cover and let sit for 24 hours.

After sitting it will be like jelly. Beat with a wire whisk until smooth and more the consistency of syrup. Store in large liquid laundry detergent container. Measure the same as you would any other laundry soap.

Cost is about $8 for all the above ingredients that will make around 3 batches.

The claim is that you do not need to use bleach or fabric softner, but you can add those to the laundry load if desired.

Zucchini Parmesan

I'm wondering if I could get away with 'Meatless Mondays Meals'? I think the guys may protest a bit and I do worry that my son would be eating again an hour later but I think it's worth a try. I know it wouldn't hurt us to go without meat at one meal, it might even be healthier, so I am going to try it for a month and then give my report. I know the following recipe will be on my food budget since I am growing my own zucchini and I have everything except the Parmesan cheese in my pantry already. I have a really yummy french bread recipe that is easy to make that will follow the Zucchini Parmesan recipe.

Zucchini Parmesan

Zucchini is fried then baked with an herbed tomato sauce.

* 4 to 5 medium zucchini, about 1 1/2 pounds
* 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
* 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
* 1 teaspoon dried leaf oregano
* 1/2 teaspoon dried leaf basil
* 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
* 1/4 cup olive oil
* 2 tomatoes, sliced
* 1 cup sour cream
* 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Butter an 8-inch square baking dish. Scrub zucchini and cut into 1/4-inch slices. In a medium bowl, combine flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon oregano, 1/4 teaspoon basil, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Toss zucchini slices with the seasoned flour, coating slices thoroughly. Heat oil over medium low heat in a large skillet. Sauté zucchini slices in batches until golden brown, about 4 minutes on each side. Drain well and repeat until all zucchini is browned. In a bowl, combine sour cream, remaining 1 teaspoon salt, remaining 1/2 teaspoon oregano, 1/4 teaspoon basil, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Place zucchini slices in baking dish. Top zucchini with tomato slices; spread sour cream mixture over tomatoes, then sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake at 350° for about 30 minutes, or until zucchini is tender. Serves 6.

I'm going to serve my Zucchini Parmesan with spaghetti and marinara sauce as well as the fresh bread.

French Bread
1/2 c warm water
2T yeast ----dissolve in the above Water

2c hot water
1/2 c oil
1T salt
2T sugar ----place in mixing bowl and dissolve the salt & sugar

mix in:
3c flour

then stir in the yeast mixture, add in 3 more cups of flour. I need to add 1/2c - 1c more of flour, depending on the weather, till it forms a soft ball. This means it is pulling away from the bowl forming a ball and is a bit sticky to the touch.

You will let it rise for 10 minutes then turn on the mixer, or knead by hand, to get the air out. You will repeat this process three more times. On the fourth time I divide the dough into two or four balls, depending on the size you want, and shape into loaves of bread. I do use a serrated knife and make a slight cut three times diagonally on the top of each loaf. Whisk an egg and cover each loaf to add a golden crust. Let rise 10-20 minutes and bake at 350 degrees for 25-35 minutes. Make sure that the bread has a dark golden crust and you can knock on the top and hear a hollow sound. Then I know it is done. I have made this bread when I couldn't bake a single other thing, it is that easy. Fresh, warm bread is a treat all on it's own but add some fresh jam and dessert is served!

Old Navy Saturday Deal 8/29

If you have seen television lately then you have seen a commercial about their $19 jean sale. I was in Old Navy tonight and spoke to the manager asking him what this Saturday's deal was going to be. He informed me that on Saturday with each $19 jean purchase you would get a free t-shirt. The free t-shirts will not be any of the licensed shirts such as super heroes or sports team logo shirts. That is an outfit for $19. That is a great deal!
I also noticed that about half way down the store in the women's section they have a '$5, $10, $15 Store'. Here they have moved all of their sale items that meet these price points. There were cute long sleeved shirts for $5! That was the best deal that I noticed.
The next weekend, Labor Day weekend, there will be 1000 items on sale and Sept. 11th-14th will be their big 'Womens, Babies, & Maternity Event'. I will post more information on these weekend sales as the time draws closer.

We Survivied!

My husband got a job today!
Time to celebrate!
I want to thank everyone for their kind
words, prayers, and thoughts on our behalf.

Free Pizza for Camaro Owners!

All because one man has too much money...

FREE Papa John's large, one-topping pizza to anyone who drives up in a Camaro tomorrow, 8/26.

Papa" John Schnatter conducted a nationwide Road Trip this summer, all for one purpose: finding the beloved 1971 Z28 Camaro he sold more than 25 years ago to help his dad's tavern stay afloat and ultimately launch Papa John's.

Just how beloved? So much so that Schnatter, founder of the world's third-largest pizza company, initially offered a $25,000 "finder's fee" to the person who could produce the title to his long-lost Camaro, and later offered $250,000 to whomever could produce the title and transfer the car. The search was chronicled online at, where thousands of people logged on to offer tips on how to find his car.

Today, Papa John's cherished Z28 Camaro is coming home to Louisville, Ky.

In celebration of Schnatter finding his Camaro, Papa John's will offer a free large, one-topping pizza on Wednesday, August 26, 2009, to Camaro owners. To redeem, Camaro owners must arrive at their nearby Papa John's restaurant in their Camaro to order and pick up their free pizza. Limit one pizza per Camaro, and one visit per Camaro.

I have to say this one stings a little. I have always wanted a '67 Camaro and this is just rubbing my nose in the fact that I don't have one, yet.

Butternut Squash and Apple Bread

Last night as my family sat down to dinner they looked at the chicken and tortilla casserole and asked what vegetables were in the dinner. I laughed and said that it was a 'zucchini free' meal. So I decided that today's recipe would be a 'zucchini free' one as well. Because we got a butternut squash in with Bountiful Baskets I thought we would still go with a squash recipe.

Butternut squash is very low in saturated fat, cholesterol, and
sodium. It is a good source of vitamin E, thiamin, niacin, vitamin B6,
folate, calcium, and magnesium, and a very good source of
vitamin A, vitamin C, potassium, and manganese.

Butternut Squash and Apple Bread

Moist and tender, this breakfast bread tastes simply
incredible spread with cream cheese or preserves.
Makes 1 loaf
11/2 cups all-purpose, unbleached flour
1 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon allspice
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/3 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
1/3 cup dried cranberries
1-15 oz. can Farmer’s Market Organic
Butternut Squash OR Farmer’s Market
Organic Sweet Potato Puree
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 cup applesauce
1/3 cup apple juice or skim milk
Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a standard
loaf pan (9 inches x 5 inches x 3 inches) with butter
or vegetable oil. Combine all dry ingredients in a
large mixing bowl (flour through dried cranberries).
Combine wet ingredients in another bowl (butternut
squash through apple juice or skim milk). Make a
well in the center of the dry ingredients and fold in
wet ingredients until just combined. Pour into loaf
pan and bake in the center of the oven for about 1
hour and 15 minutes until baked through. Insert a
skewer or toothpick into the center to test doneness.
It should come out clean when removed.
Serving Suggestions
You may also make muffins out of this mix.
If baked as muffins, cooking time will be
approximately 30 minutes.
