Even though the beans have taken over the kitchen this past week I have attempted a couple “new” menu items that I thought I would share.
I made some hamburger buns that were fantastic.
Recipe can be found here. For some reason I can’t get the actual recipe page to load so you will have to search. That will be easy for you, unless you are blessed with dial-up like me. But the search is worth your time if you are looking for some great hamburger buns. I made half the recipe and it made 34 buns!!
I also made some Zucchini Cupcakes for a family gathering this past weekend that I found here.
You all know how much I love all the fantastic things that Amanda makes and these were really great. I didn’t have much time to make them as fancy as hers, but they still tasted good!
I also made a Chocolate Zucchini Cake. That recipe I found here. Can you tell I have some zucchini? Farmer Neal found a big one hiding and those are great for baking so I have been doing my part to use it us. I still have a few cups … it was huge … so another recipe might have to be found.
I would take a picture of the cake but that means I would have to open the cake holder it is in and I would have no choice but to have another piece. I am trying hard not to eat it … it is delicious! Evelyn and I shared a piece after dinner. So … you will need to use your imagination, it is a beautiful chocolate cake baked in a bundt pan … my favorite.
Curious about that bean total?
I have officially canned 78 quarts of green beans and there are 15 quarts frozen in the freezer. Plus, I have 4 quarts of fresh ones in the refrigerator. I really really hope that is the end! There are more in the garden but I am hoping they end up in someone elses kitchen and not mine. Thankfully there are lots of people who love beans.
So there you have it folks … just a little glimpse into our farm kitchen.
