Zucchini "apple" pie

Posted by Amateur Teacher on Friday, July 27, 2012, In : food 
I've been talking about this pie for a few days now and how I was going to make it... (heck, I've been talking about zucchini for, what, like a month now?) I must say, I was somewhat afraid to make it. What if it was gross? What if I waste my ingredients on something I'm not going to eat? Then, I looked at the pile of zucchini on the counter and thought, "Seriously? What is it going to hurt?" 

Since I was going to visit with my teacher friend and watch some Whole Brain Teaching videos (we've b...

Back to school! Almost...

Posted by Amateur Teacher on Thursday, July 26, 2012, In : canning 
Our carpets at school have been cleaned which means we have the green light to get back to work. Every year I always say how much I don't want to go back to school... until I see my schoolroom. In the moment I see it, I want to jump in the air, click my heels, and squeal with delight. I love teaching. There's no way around it. It is what I was born to do and no matter how wonderful a summer may be, or how terrible a school year could be, I can't wait to get back to work! My teacher friend met...

Posted by Amateur Teacher on Tuesday, July 24, 2012, In : canning 
Pun intended. Here's what I just posted to Facebook:
 
  "The last three weeks our zucchini plants have been LOADED. I have made zucchini bread, zucchini chocolate muffins, zucchini pie, zucchini patties, zucchini fries, zucchini brownies, zucchini medallions, breaded zucchini, sauteed zucchini, and, today, zucchini relish (which smells fabulous! it's in the water bath as I type!). My favorite of all these recipes? The brownies. Hands down. Tomorrow, I'm trying a zucchini "apple" pie. Gotta get...

Zucchini overload... and a sneak peek!

Posted by Amateur Teacher on Wednesday, July 11, 2012, In : homework 

I love zucchini. It just may be my favorite vegetable. It is so versatile and adds great moistness and flavor to any dish. So, when I discovered ANOTHER giant zucchini this week (you'd think I would learn to lift those leaves by now) I decided it was time to do more than just the ol' saute method. I ended up with four cups of shredded zucchini from this one bad boy. I was able to make two loaves of zucchini bread and a recipe of zucchini patties with it! Look! It measured 12 and a half inches...

About Me


Amateur Extraordinaire I was born to a farmer and a farmer's daughter. I, however, was just a tiny little thing when my parents had to move from their farm. All my life I heard stories of "the farm" and the life they had there. From a young age, I knew I would have my own one day. While it is far from the farm my daddy had, my Mister and I bought our first place in August of 2011. Sitting on six acres is a homestead we're making into our own slice of heaven on earth. Follow along as we stake our claim on this piece of earth the LORD has entrusted to us.
