Oh… I was visited by the Fairy Hobmother!  For your chance for a visit {& Amazon gift card} leave a comment about your weekend on this post over here!


  1. Should the link to the hobmother? lead to a bread recipe?

  2. @cnk2cav - nope! Sorry. Thanks for the catch, I've updated the link to my Saturday post.

    @ Christina -- I teach college students about biology; from the organism (plants & animals) up to ecology. I would call myself an ecosystem ecologist :)

  3. YUM! I love maple sausage, can't wait to see how the recipe turns out for that!

  4. What a great menu! And those carrot zucchini pancakes may be a hit in my house! It would be a great use of veggies from my garden!

  5. My goodness, I'm pinning so many zucchini recipes, I'm actually going to run out of my stock pile in the freezer. lol Thanks for hosting such a great linky party!

  6. Oy! That last comment was worded wrong, please delete it and use this one.

    I love all the zucchini recipes your posting. I think I'm actually going to use up my stock pile that I have in the freezer. lol Have a great week!
