Bake A Thon

Ready, set, here we go!

I started out making four loaves of zucchini bread.  Two for my father-in-law and two for us.

Sadly I may only have enough zucchini to make one more batch of bread. :( My zucchini plants are very stressed from the heat and lack of rain.  We did receive some more rain overnight and again this evening.  Thank you God!  If this continues just maybe they will be able to survive. 

I spent a good portion of the afternoon and evening baking.  I don't know how many dozens of cookies I made. 

Ms. Betty Crocker helped me to quickly whip up a batch of brownies. 

It has been a while since I have spent time baking.  It felt good to be back doing something I love! 

There is a family reunion this weekend. Tomorrow will be spent in the kitchen making some more good stuff for Saturday.  It has been about three years since we have seen Chuck's family from Iowa.  I am looking forward to catching up with them tomorrow evening. 

May your day be filled with joy and contentment!
