Zucchini Pancakes

I woke up Saturday morning at 7am!!!!!!!!

Preparation for the bebe? Hmmm….perhaps. It could be the fact that I woke up with heartburn and a nagging pain in my back. I think I had a dream about bacon….which is what inspired me to get my butt out of bed and make us some breakfast.

I also really wanted mushrooms as you could see….

momma is craving mushrooms today

Waking up that early is as annoying as it is nice. I started grocery shopping at 8am and felt like there was soo much potential food wise this weekend.

While Casey was still sleeping, I was able to put the final touches on our new guest room. The old guest room is going to be converted into the new baby room. I love this new color blue. The really nice part is that you can lay in bed and look at the trees outside. A perfect place to read a book/magazine in the afternoon.

I also made those deceptively delicious brownies (seen in the previous post).

For lunch, I used leftover bacon and made us some BLATS (Bacon Lettuce Avocado Tomato Sandwiches)



We went to see a matinee showing of The Dark Knight today (really good btw).

I decided to treat us to a nice afternoon early dinner on the back deck.

Zucchini pancakes with a dill/cucumber yogurt dip, a mixed green salad (with tomatoes, cucumbers, red onions & feta) Hot Genoa salami, Sopressata & some slices of a sour batard.

I also made a yummy *mocktail*

cucumber & pineapple juice, gingerale, seltzer, ice & a pink straw.

Cucumber & Pineapple Juice with Ginger ale and Seltzer water. MMMMMMMM Refreshing.

Nothing like putting some zucchini to good use!

three little pancakes in a row

Zucchini Pancakes

(made about 8)

-3 large zucchini, shredded (drain in a bowl lined with paper towels for an hour before making)
-1/4 cup flour
-1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
-2 large eggs
-3 tablespoons chopped Italian Parsley
-2 teaspoons garlic powder
-1 dash of cayenne pepper
-salt & pepper
-cooking spray

1. Preheat oven 200 degrees. Put a cookie sheet in the oven- line with a few pieces of paper towel.
1. Mix dry ingredients together in a bowl. Add the egg & zucchini. Mix well.
2. Heat up a non-stick skillet on medium heat with cooking spray. (It’s much healthier than frying). Spoon zucchini batter on the skillet and flatten each pancake.
4. Cook each pancake for about 3 minutes per side before flipping. Put cooked pancakes in the oven while you are making the rest!
5. DEVOUR. Immediately.

Top it with a yogurt/dill/cucumber dip and you have yourself a little slice of heaven.

Now I leave you…off to start the laundry and relax. There’s a nice breeze here today and I’m thoroughly enjoying the calm before the storm.

Happy Sunday Everyone.
