I made the strawberry lemonade on this post yesterday. We had a friend here for dinner and so we could have a glass of wine with dinner, we used the lemonade as a pre-dinner drink (She had to drive home) and it really hit the spot. Very refreshing. It would also be good , we decided, with a splash of gin or vodka, as an adult only drink With the berries in the garden (or freezer) this will become a staple here.
This is one I tried so far this week. I'm also going to have a bowl of chilled zucchini soup w/ lemon for lunch. This one was good , but still not sure I'd make again. It was also the first time I've cooked fish on the bbq and was really happy it didn't fall apart like I thought it would so that worked well too. This had over 2,000 great ratings from allrecipes.com.
Kind of a bland looking picture, hopefully I'll learn from you guys soon. Needs some nice pretty broccoli instead of the yummy garlic/ cauliflower recipe that Linda/ cllw had shared before. Also some smashed potatoes that Chefly had posted too.
Jill, Good Job!! I think it looks delicious..what makes you think you might not make it again? Did you try it on a cedar plank? Salmon is delicious on those...
I don't have anything to add to the 'new' this week...bad Linda!
I would love to try a cedar plank Linda! Our kitchen store is going out of business and in the past they would still order something for you and would still give you the discount during their sales. I can't blame them, but they won't do that this time.
I guess there's 2 reasons I may not make it again, 1 I have so many great recipes for salmon and 2 I tend to overcook fish to begin with and even easier to do that on the bbq. Still didn't get too dried out and may try it one more time.
cllwI don't have anything to add to the 'new' this week...bad Linda!
It's only Monday!!!
Jill I'm always on the fence with salmon. I know it's good for me but I don't always want to eat it.
Well where are all the other recipes? Lol. I hope to see a few more here. I know, it's only Tues.
I've been lucky Sue, I didn't really grow up on seafood except maybe trout from our fishing trip when I was young, but have always like almost all of them. Really for me salmon is better out, they cook it all the way through but don't overcook it, not sure how they do that. And really a lot of people aren't too fond of salmon, so nothing to worry about.
I sure hope there's a few more new recipes posted soon. I hate playing by myself...lol.
This one I pretty much completely changed from the original recipe but will still show where I got the idea. These were really delicious and will definitely make them again. I do need to try them later to see how they taste after they've sat for a while, make sure they don't get soggy or anything.
This is the recipe I started with~ http://www.tasteofhome.com/Recipes/Lemon-Zucchini-Drops
And ended up with this one. Will even make it healthier next time by using a healthier margarine and sugar. I'm also wondering how chocolate chips would work in it. (ok, not as healthy)
Any suggestions on wording my instructions better?

Great Job Jill . You're on a Roll!!!
I'm enjoying your photos.
Jill you've done awesome this week!!!
Guess I better pick a new ingredient for tomorrow? Any requests?
Wanna pick the category? Meat, Vegetable or Fruit?
Where were these when I had my coffee this morning??? YUM!
At my house........I waited as long as I could........where WERE you????????????
Sigh .....at the Middle School Awards Assembly I would have snuck one into the auditorium though!
I'll gladly pay you Tues. for a muffin today! (lol, do you know what that's from?)
I wish I were there to help you out on those too Carol, they look fabulous! Thank-you for such great pictures, rec. & rev!
So my cookies didn't get soggy which I had been afraid of. After sitting in the bag they do have a fairly strong zucchini odor which puts me off a bit. I've always loved the smell of zucchini bread so not sure why I'm having a bit of a problem with these. But still they are delicious and fairly healthy so am glad I tried my revamped recipe.
Sue, We've done meat and fruit now. My vote would be vegetable but I'm really not that picky. You've done a great job of picking out an ingredient that we all can work with so whatever you pick is fine.
