Zucchini good

This was a fantastic use of the zucchini today....um, yes, I made this today. It was so good, we decided to share it with some of the "unsung heroes" at DH's school: the secretary, janitor, librarian, gym teacher, art teacher, and music teacher. We had a few nibbles before dinner and after dinner. It won't last long. Here's the recipe:

Chocolate Zucchini Cake (from the Conrad Iowa Entre Nous Club Cookbook)
1/4 cup oleo, softened
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup sour milk
2 1/2 cup flour
4 T cocoa
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp soda
2 cup zucchini
Mix together ingredients. Pour into a greased and floured 9x13x2" pan. Sprinkle 1/4 cup sugar and 1/2 cup chocolate chips on top of batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes.

Here's what else we did today:Don't I look so domestic in this fab apron?

DD spent over an hour looking at her scrapbooks - - a good reminder of why I scrapbook.

Digging out from the big storm

DD & I also made her Valentines for the party at school tomorrow - - we took mini Kit Kat bars, pulled off the wrapper and made our own fancy, stamped, personalized wrapper complete with flouncy ribbon. No photos; DD was sick of me taking pictures by then.
