Feeling Industrious

Yesterday, I realize I had a bunch of produce I wanted to use up before the kids
and I visit Grandma and Grandpa this week.
I'm proud to say I had a productive, exhausting day,
but it's so good to taste the result of hard work!

Chocolate Zucchini Bundt Cake that has since
received a drizzle of ganache-like frosting.

Mother-Knows-Best Carrot Cookies from carrots I cooked down and froze a few weeks ago. Sounds gross, but they are so good! I've been wanting to try this recipe for over a year and I finally did. They are supposed to be frosted with an orange buttercream, but they are so yummy without it I may just skip that step!

A half batch of Bread and Butter Pickles from the cucumbers from my garden.

And lastly, the kids and I worked on some freezer paper stencil T-shirts for Daddy and the Grandpas.... for Father's Day gifts. Hmmm, a bit behind, but luckily we have very understanding men in our lives. I'll post the final product another day.

Needless to say, I slept very well last night!
