Saturday Ramblin'.....

Even though the temps have hit 90 degrees over this past week, it's just been beautiful! I've enjoyed what time I've had at home with windows open and fans going.  Yes, warm enough to turn on the air but I just hate turning it on so early in the season after being cooped up all winter, I love having the house open to let out all that winter stuffiness! 
Today, however, is another story.  Rain moved into the area a couple days ago and along with it came much cooler temps. I'm back to my flannel jammies and warm socks!

I want to share a recipe with you this morning....
2 cups grated zucchini*
3 cups flour
3 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
3 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1-1/2 cup sugar 
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup raisins**

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix all ingredients together. 
Pour into muffin cups and bake til done! 
This recipe makes 12 large muffins. (Yes, you only see 11 in the photo...but someone had to flavor sample before snapping the pic!)

*I use what I have peeled, grated, frozen then thawed.
**I soften raisins by covering them with water in a microwave safe bowl....microwave on high for 1 minute and let set while preparing the rest of the ingredients.
They are great the way they are or you can drizzle with glaze.
I'm not sure what the rest of my day will be.  Yesterday, I started working on the backporch, which has become the catch-all site of many things and I really need to finish that.  I've had people tell me they can't stand to be at home because they get bored. Haha....there's never time to get bored here as there is always something to do! So if not the backporch, it will keep til tomorrow while I work on something else today.

Enjoy your weekend!
