cut up and freeze zucchini for winter cooking

Do you do anything special with it or just cut it up and put in freezer bags? That is what I do with my surplus of garden tomatoes, never thought to do it with zucchini.

How did the boys do with the remaining entries at the fair?

My Monday to do list:

DD up and ready for school
Caffeinate - I know there goes my goal of going back to just drinking water, but hey, it's Monday
Work
Afternoon Meeting
Dinner
Bathtime
Put guest room back together
Bed

Shhh, don't tell Mt. Washmore, but I conquered it this weekend. As of Sunday night, all laundry with exception of what we wore Sunday, has been washed, folded, and PUT away. How did that happen.

Ho hum...Monday

Gonna need some coffee

DD9 has a fever so...not sure what this is going to do to my day tomorrow.

If I she stays home - lotsa laundry, hot spot cleaning. Maybe some scrapping.

Gonna need some diapers tomorrow!! So have to fit that in somewhere....maybe Grandma can watch over DD while I make a run for Target.

:wizard:to BAMB - feel better

OK already up. DH has been battling someone/something in his sleep, DD2 woke up at 2 and 4 screaming "Momma" and DD9 has that hacking cough that once you start you cannot stop. Gonna be a long day in Mommyville today. At least I can watch the DIS as people report on booking the Panama Canal cruise. I can see what prices are skyrocketing up to before us lowly silver level people get to book next Monday. Not happy I will not seemingly get tier 1 pricing. But a girl can sip a latte and dream, right!?

My mom makes really good Chocolate Pumpkin Pie muffins - I think she got the recipe from calanniebu?

morgansmom2000
09-21-2009, 09:24 AM
Can you send me the Chocolate Pumpkin Pie Muffins recipe? Pumpkin is a favorite flavor of mine ;)

PinballFamily
09-21-2009, 01:09 PM
Calanniebu said it was a WeightWatchers recipe - I made a couple of tinkerings with it - so easy and the kids have NO idea these are healthy-ish.

1 15oz. can of pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
1 box of chocolate cake mix (anything - choc fudge, devils food, etc.)
1 egg
Handful of chocolate chips

Mix all ingredients together - batter will be VERY stiff - I use my KitchenAid mixer. In our house, this makes exactly 12 very large muffins. (So, they're probably kinda more than the 2 points suggested by WW :rolleyes1)

Bake at 350 for 20 min. That's it!

They taste really good and chocolatey - the kids scarf them down. Sorry, morgansmom - they don't taste pumpkiny at all. (I make double batches in the hope *some* end up in the freezer for school day breakfasts - but they don't last that long around here!) And they're nice to share with friends. I think TinkerBean is enjoying one of hers today - is it good?

morgansmom2000
09-21-2009, 01:14 PM
Ooh, thank you! I can't wait to try these (it's okay if they don't taste much like pumpkin, it's enough if there's an essence!).

morgansmom2000
09-21-2009, 01:15 PM
Huh, no word from Holly yet?

TinkerBean
09-21-2009, 01:20 PM

I just finished mine - YUMMY!!!:goodvibes

Ugh! I had no internet all day. Thought I would go crazy.

Little Bit got his first H1N1 shot today. Hopefully there will no weird side effects. He loves that he is getting paid for what his friends will have to get anyway. He gets a second one in October. But they are hoping that everyone will only have to get the one. There have been no strange or unusual side effects reported so far in the trial. Three groups have gotten the H1N1 already. Little Bit's group is the last one to get one. Two other groups are getting their second this week.

Need to go play catch up on all the things I've missed all day.

PinballFamily
09-21-2009, 03:00 PM
Glad you like the recipe/muffins!

Apparently, it is an "oldie but goodie" I had never heard of, until Calanniebu generously brought a batch of these to a summer crop and I ate an embarrassing number of them (as did Z2H)!!! If anyone else tinkers with the recipe and finds even more yummy flavor - be sure to let us all know...

Hello everyone- it has been a busy morning and it was my first chance to check in here.

I hope all those getting sick feel better soon.

Duchess had her check up this morning and the vet said she did a good job with removing the stitches- but she doesn't need to do his job.

I still need to:
check on birthday spending
check with mom on what she is getting Larry for his b-day
order a b-day gift or 2 for DH
dinner- pork chops and wild rice w/ vegies
try and get a few things ready to take with me to Disney to work on a few swaps this week

Well, we're home from softball early. PrincessM pulled something in her leg and ended up on the DL list, crying her eyes out. She's soaking in the tub, and DH and BIL went for Chinese. They don't like the restaurant I do, and I reallllly don't like the restaurant they do, so I had a baked potato from Wendy's. Yeah, I'm going to need more food.

Still no word from Holly? I texted her around 5:00 pm and still haven't heard from her... :confused3

morgansmom2000
09-21-2009, 07:04 PM

Jennifer
I'd hoped for a word when I got back on here tonight so I'm going with no news is good news (not) I also know that they probably told her nothing till it's read. Hopefully that's the issue.

HOLLY where are you?????????????????????

TinkerBean
09-21-2009, 07:19 PM
I keep checking this thread to get a Holly update too.

Poor Morgan, hope she feels better. I could go for a baked potato about now:goodvibes

My mom makes really good Chocolate Pumpkin Pie muffins - I think she got the recipe from calanniebu?

I make similiar muffins but with just the can of pumpkin and spice cake mix. Yummmmy but I am thinking I need to try the Chocolate Pumpkin muffins. Sounds wonderful!

Little Bit got his first H1N1 shot today.

Poor Little Bit, i hope he doesn't experience any side effects from his shot.

check with mom on what she is getting Larry for his b-day
order a b-day gift or 2 for DH
Rebecca

When is DH birthday?

Well, we're home from softball early. PrincessM pulled something in her leg and ended up on the DL list, crying her eyes out. She's soaking in the tub

The poor little Princess. I hope a good soak eases her pain.

Holly, it is a funky feeling being in that tube, isn't it? By Wednesday, start calling the dr's office for the results. We have waited long enough, we want you well now!:hug:

well, my goal of going caffeine free has been blown out of the window. I did good until about a half hour into my work day. So I went down stairs vowing to get just a small cup of coffee. Oh no, that didn't happen, they are back to serving Pumpkin Spice flavored coffee for the next two months!!! One large cup each day won't be a bad thing, will it?:confused3 :goodvibes

joyah
09-21-2009, 08:47 PM
Holly glad you checked in lisa (i think anyway) is right start calling on wed am. I couldn't durvive one i'd have to be drugged to wheelchair mobility!:rotfl2: and we love you too!!!
Jennifer Sorry to hear abt. M hope she's doing better. Brain dead though I'd responded and guess the thought went through the head and the fingers didn't type it. I need to get to bed.
Lisa if I liked coffee that would be the one it's only around for 2 months go for it. maybe just the small cup will get you through.

Taking thyself to bed

:hug: Holly... I'm so sorry.. DH says he knows you pain... He said but at least hopefully for you it is a one time thing.. He has it done every October.. His next one is due up in 2 weeks... (keep fingers crossed there is nothing new)... Anyway, I agree w/ the others.. 48 hours... call them first thing Wed. morning.. Keep us posted..

As for the townie, is it the same one as last time? Do I need to give him a reminder of what happened not that long ago?

morgansmom2000
09-22-2009, 07:54 AM
PrincessM is a princess first, so she knows how to pluck momma's heart strings. She's fine, gave her a little Motrin and she had a good soak in the tub. She woke up fine, and is off to school.

Holl, start calling Weds at noon. No delay, you need an answer this week. I've had a couple of MRIs. The first one was the worst, but after that one, they haven't been so bad.

Pumpkin Spice coffeeeeeeeeee....Okay, I'm off to make a second cup of coffee. If there was a Starbucks closer, I'd be out of here right now, to get a Pumpkin Spice Latte (my favorite until the Gingerbread comes out). Lisa, one cup of caffeinated beverage a day is okay...Really.
