JUNE Recipe (Without the Recipe) from the Garden: Zucchini Bread

Since my last garden post, you can see that the zucchini plants have grown a bit! That stuff is crazy, out of control and we have gotten quite a few mammoth zuchinnis from it!! Short of giving it all away, I need to become more creative with it.
That would be the zucchini plants on the left, towards the center.
You really can't go wrong with zucchini bread...

I would post the recipe for this zucchini bread but I honestly don't want to because zucchini bread recipes are so easy to find and I'm really just too lazy to post it! ;)

MAY Recipe from the Garden: Fresh Strawberry Yogurt Cake

I hesitated whether or not I should post this since it was from May but I thought it was necessary because the recipe is VERY yummy. So yummy that my neighbor (who I had shared some cake with) asked me to make one for a work get together and paid me to do it!  

This is our garden back in May when it was tame and under control...
We have strawberries at the other end of the garden. We also have watermelon, zucchini, carrots, cucumbers and peppers. 

This picture doesn't give this cake justice. Go here for the recipe and some good pictures!
Try it, you will be very happy you did!!

Our Goofy Grouch Turns Three!

This little boy is either making me laugh or making me want to pull my hair out!!
He is extremely goofy and at times, very grouchy...definitely a "Mason" trait.
Why he is like his daddy...he is content to be by himself and resembles him!
Why he is like his mommy...he is intense and cautious!
He tries to make Madelin happy when she is sad by being goofy and Madelin "pushes his buttons" like no one else can (which brings out the beast)!
He adores "Kater," "Kater Booger," "Kater Bugger" and finds her to be quite entertaining!
Some of his LIKES include watching t.v. especially Super Readers and Wild Kratts, Buzz Lightyear, "Wightming" McQueen, fruit, raisins, pulling his pants off when they get wet (any kind of liquid ;)) and playing outside.

Me with my birthday boy!!

His first bike!

New light "saver" and he was happy to get it! :)

Ice cream made by momma.

Blowing out his candles!

Cruisin on his new ride, with help from daddy!
His comment was, "Help me daddy, I might fall off!" Hmmm...sounds just like something I might say.

I can't wait to see what the future holds for this little man!!! :)
