Stormy morning...this is what my house looked like at 8:30 am
We got 5 inches an hour I think. leaks everywhere and a tornado nearby too. we are supposed to get another round in a hour. I am starting to feel water logged! I was running around the house with towels this morning mopping up leaks! The pictures show how dark it was I hope. My little beast kept asking me if it was still nighttime when he woke up. He now has a storm
anxiety obsession cause the past 3 years we have been it harder than ever with late summer storms and Hurricanes.
On to real business...I have adapted a recipe for a lighter Zucchini Banana muffin (below), a new yarn for a new baby booty that will be up on Etsy and a new beading project. It's a Mala (a meditation tool) and its the first one I have ever made myself and I love the process. The colors hear I have Moon Stone, Chrysocolla and Agate from here
We also have a winners for the giveaway..Adrienne and Cindy thanks so much for visiting and commenting. Email me your info and I will get your goodies right out to you! Let me know what your plans are for the fabric too!
Zucchini Banana Muffin
- 1 medium sized zucchini about a cup,cup in a half shredded
- 1 banana
- 1 cup sugar divided
- 1/2cup butter softened
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 4 eggs
- 2 cups flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg... I use freshly grated
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 cup Greek non fat yogurt...I use Fage
Combine shredded zucchini, mashed banana and 1/2 cup sugar and set aside. Beat butter,sugar, and vanilla together until well blended on medium speed. Add zucchini/banana mixture and beat well. Whisk together dry ingredients. Add alternately with yogurt, mix after each addition. Place into muffin cups ( I sometimes make it in a small cake pan too). Bake at 350 for 25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. You can frost these or even add some chocolate chips. I usually use a cream cheese frosting. These are a bit lighter and not as dense as regular zucchini muffins.
Try the recipe and let me know what you think?? We have a busy week this week. Birthdays and some off to school over seas. I fill you in on the next post...I'll be typing all day and I want to get off before te next round of storms hit!
Peace & Love
