Now time to finish cupcake order....

Hybrid Cookie recipe

I am calling them oatmeal zucchini raisin breakfast cookies.

1 cup raisins
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup Splenda ( or you can do 1 cup sugar or all Splenda browns better with sugar)
2 eggs
1/2 cup 1% milk
3 cups oatmeal
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup white flour ( again you can use any flour you want)
1 1/4 teaspoon soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 generous teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup zucchini, grated
1/2 cup mini semi sweet chocolate chips

I just threw everything in a big bowl broke out the handmixer and let her rip till well mixed.  Put them in a 375 degree F oven for 12 minutes.  I made generous sized cookies more like small biscuits.  You can make them smaller probabaly cut cooking time down 8 to 12.

I always use parchment paper now when I do any cookies.  No brown bottoms ever unless you REALLY over bake them.  I use the same sheet several times too for same cookies. Save a few pennies....

Anyway lots of fiber!  worst thing in this recipe is the shortening I think you could use a cup of apple sauce and tablespoon of vegetable oil instead.  I just like the texture of that the shortening gives them.

Ups and Downs

221.6   YIPPEE.  I wish the weight was coming off faster, BUT from 228.8 it isn't bad especially with a trip home for a wedding. What makes me sick is last year at this time I was under 200.....  No use beating myself up over it! BUT If I'd kepted on track I'd probably at 150.....

Well, so much for NOT beating myself up.... 7.2 pounds down in 19 days.   I need to step it up!

                                           Still pretty though!

                                           RED SKY AT NIGHT SAILORS DELIGHT

ON THE GOOD SIDE I LOST WEIGHT  222.4 this morning!  And the bad side Jim and I had a HUGE fight.  More like he ranted at me, and I listened.  I must admit he has a point.  BUT two of the things he ranted at me about he helped create too.  Now I have to fix it.  I should have fixed it long ago.  I've taken steps.  I got a job.   i need to drum up more Cake business.  WISH ME LUCK!

Katie and I went shopping
 I got new reading glasses.  I broke my prescription ones.  These seem to be close to my prescription if not spot on!  I want to find sun glasses like this!  I had a pair and they are missing in action :(
Am I a hat person?  well in the pool reading I am the glare kills my eyes any more.  I think a big one too!  Yeah, I can rock hats why not?

Finally found Katie-boo a swim suit!!!  YIPPEE!  She got a cover up, shorts, and  couple of shirts too.

Jim, Katie and I  saw the Men in Black 3 film.  GOOD!

Almost back to where I was..... need to work a bit harder....BLAH!

Zucchini bites!

 The smell of these cooking is HEAVEN!

1 cups zucchini, grated
1 egg
1/4 yellow onion, diced
1/4 cup cheese (cheddar or Parmesan work the best) ( I USED BOTH)
1/4 cup bread crumbs - I used Italian style
Salt and Pepper

1. Preheat oven to 400F. Spray a mini-muffin tin with non-stick spray, set aside.
2. Grate the zucchini and then place in a dish towel to squeeze out the excess water- like when using frozen spinach; if you skip this part, the middle of the zucchini tots will be really soggy while the outside gets crispy and no one wants that.
3. In a bowl combine, the egg, onion, cheese, bread crumbs, zucchini, salt and pepper.
4. Using a spoon or a cookie scoop, fill the muffin cups to the top. Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until the top is browned and set.

Mexican Food OH MY!

 Katie's MONSTER BURRITO she had three bites....
 Katie & Rebecca
Chile Verde

So I took my daughter and one of her friends to dinner last night.  Love Mexican food, BUT the tortilla chips are DANGEROUS!  Before we knew it the 3 of us had scarfed down a whole basket with queso and salsa, another was put before us after that... When our dinners arrived we all took about three or four bites.  Guess what I'm having for lunch today?! MINUS THE DREADED CHIPS!  not very sensible eating friendly  :(
