To me, EVERY day is a reason to celebrate!!! Every morning on the show, I break the celebrating down for you by telling you ‘Today is…’ Here is how I plan on celebrating TODAY!!!

Since today is Sneak Some Zucchini Onto Your Neighbors Porch Day, I thought instead of leaving a zucchini on the porch I would bake some Zucchini Bread and HAND deliver it! ;-)
Here is my recipe… from my Simply Recipes App!
Ingredients
2 eggs, beaten

1 1/3 cup sugar

2 teaspoons vanilla

3 cups grated fresh zucchini

2/3 cup melted unsalted butter

2 teaspoons baking soda

Pinch salt

3 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)

1 cup dried cranberries or raisins (optional)

Method

1 Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). In a large bowl, mix together the sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Mix in the grated zucchini and then the melted butter. Sprinkle baking soda and salt over the mixture and mix in. Add the flour, a third at a time. Sprinkle in the cinnamon and nutmeg and mix. Fold in the nuts and dried cranberries or raisins if using.

2 Divide the batter equally between 2 buttered 5 by 9 inch loaf pans. Bake for 1 hour (check for doneness at 50 minutes) or until a wooden pick inserted in to the center comes out clean. Cool in pans for 10 minutes. Turn out onto wire racks to cool thoroughly.

Makes 2 loaves.

- As far as meditating, I asked the question today, on the show, who would you pay money to meet? My answer, I would pay money to meet Dr. Wayne Dyer. LOVE HIM!!! Would LOVE to spend time talking one on one with him about MY gifts within, meditation, relaxation, meditation and inner peace. He has written several books, made many videos and can be seen on PBS. :-)

Feel free to make these a part of your daily to do’s!!! :-)
