My co-worker does a lot of cross-stitch. She gave me a sandwich sized
bag of bits and pieces of embroidery floss, in all kinds of colors.
Some pretty long pieces.

If anyone wants this, please email me off group - free to the first
person! [I figure someone doing a crazy quilt piece might need it?]

Also, last night I made zucchini bread, thanks to one judge's veggie
garden. I only used half the zuke. Made two loaves, which lasted about
15 minutes this morning at work. I am including it here. Apparently it
was very good ;)

Ginger in CA

ZUCCHINI BREAD
2 cups shredded raw zucchini
3 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 cup unsweetened applesauce [replaces oil]
2 cups flour [unbleached or half regular/half wheat is a good combo]
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice [original calls for cinnamon]
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup chopped walnuts [optional]
1- 1 ?  cups raisins [optional]
Preparation:
Put zucchini in strainer and press or squeeze with hands to get some
of the excess liquid out. In a mixing bowl beat eggs, sugar, and
applesauce together. Stir in the flour, baking powder, soda, cinnamon,
salt, vanilla, walnuts and/or raisins, mixing just until all
ingredients are combined. Add drained zucchini. If mixture feels too
liquidy, add a heaping tablespoon of flour. Mix well. Pour into 2
greased and floured 8 1/2 x 4 1/2-inch loaf pans. Bake for 55 to 60
minutes at 350, or until a wooden pick or cake tester inserted in
center comes out with very little or no crumbs clinging to it.

*** I grated two carrots and added this to the grated zucchini, which
makes it a little different taste ;)

*** If using raisins, soak them in hot water for 10 minutes, drain
well, before adding to batter

just curious, how about if you soaked the raisins in something stronger than
water?
i wonder what might be nice for that, hmmmm.

sounds delicious, thanks so much.

That's not much of a recommendation, Ginger.  My experience around courtroom
gangs assures me that they will eat anything except keyboards and I've seen
teeth marks on some of them.  Polly

That was just the secretaries and judges. We didn't clue in the
bailiffs! They're the ones leaving teethmarks in keyboards and trash
everywhere.

Well, since it was going to work, I didn't. But I have done that in
the past.

Great idea Jeanne, and I speak from experience: eating a rum raisin
chocolate bar right this minute.

Well, I was told if it had been entered in the County Fair it would
have won a blue ribbon. Go figure. It was a standard recipe that I
"Gingerized", as I am prone to doing.

Ginger in CA
suffering through having another batch of the stuff in the oven, had
to use up the other half of the zuke!
