Whale Bracelet from Cambodia


My mother flew in all the way from Thailand and she brought presents! This silver whale bracelet is one of them. She bough it from a silver shop when she was visiting Cambodia. I asked if it was from a sweat shop, and she assured me that no it wasn't. I love this bracelet and wear it every day now. Thanks Mommy!

Chocolate Zucchini Bread


My neighbor left three HUGE zucchinis on my doorstep the other day. This is great because I've been eating a zucchini every day as part of my breakfast, but this much was too much for breakfast. I embarked on my first zucchini bread experience. And of course, it had to be chocolate zucchini bread! The recipe is from Pioneer Woman's Tasty Kitchen website. It is really tasty and rich. I love it! My version is wheat-free of course.
Here's the biggest zucchini. This one alone made enough for a double batch of the bread, and I froze enough for three more double batches. I'm set for the year (or at least the next four weeks).
