Zucchini in excess!!! Freeze it!!

If you have a garden chances are you have excess zucchini.

Did you know you could just slice it up, blanch it and freeze it??
Then in the dead of winter when the snows a fallin' pull it
out and enjoy some garden zucchini!
Fried in a tiny bit of olive oil... Yum!!!

Check this link for more details or just do a
simple search for freezing zucchini.
I read that unblanched zucchini will last 4-6 months
while blanched will last 10-12.

Of course don't forget to shred some for the
WONDERFUL Zucchini bread.

Oh and don't forget to leave the peel on!!
It's got the good stuff!

What's you favorite way of eating zucchini??

Ranch Dressing Recipe.. NO HFCS!!

Have you ever looked at the
ingredients of your salad dressing??

Besides having about 40 of them it includes
high fructose corn syrup (3rd ingred.)

Why they have to put all that junk in our food is beyond me...
But the good news.... We don't have to buy it!!!!

Here is a easy, quick recipe for Ranch dressing from
Heavenly Homemakers.
I love her site and have been getting soooo many
recipes from her!!

I tried the dressing this week and it's a keeper!
I even put it in our mashed potatoes last night!!

Anyone else sick of HFCS
in ALL our food?!?!?!?

I've been working on HFCS for around 4 months and
I'm excited to say that we're about 90% HFCS FREE!!
