That's what I call a productive evening

Maybe it is the excitement in anticipation to see this man tomorrow. Maybe it is the pure glee from knowing I don't have to go to my office tomorrow. Maybe I'm just nuts.

Amidst cleaning and prepping for tomorrow's houseguests (read: Parrotheads) I decided to use some of our local produce to make the Bungalow smell delicious while whipping up some yummy treats for our guests.
(The cobbler isn't burned. That is cinnamon. It got a little clumpy in the process.)

Peaches from Romney, WV and a recipe from The Lady were all that was needed to create a bubbling, golden peach cobbler. I picked up a 1/2 peck of peaches at Saturday's farmer's market downtown. They are quite delicious, but I didn't think we could finish them all before the knats took over. So I baked a cobbler (yes, I made Mike run out for vanilla ice cream to accompany it).

Zucchini is abundant with our crop share from Provider Gardens. What better way to use it than make some of Connie Harper's zucchini bread? She gave the recipe to me years ago and I substitute no-sugar-added applesauce for the oil. I'm sure this is a Connie-approved substitute. Just look at this picture. Doesn't it make you want to crab a block of cream cheese and go to town?

Now I'm off to finish dusting. Fins to the left!


  1. Hi, I'm AnNNAT. I'll be your server today. (where were we when she was our server?)

  2. You know, you shouldn't post pics like this when you aren't bringing me a share to the office. I'll just sit here, bundled up in my blanket, starving. Have a great time at the concert!!

  3. I am so sorry that I didn't eat any of that stuff. It looks sooooo good.

  4. It looks absolutely yummy.....thanks for the shout....I, too, substitute the applesauce and that block of cream chees would need to be low fat...
