First a tip for those who walk with dogs. Don't be mean, like us, and tell them they are going for a walk until the very nanosecond you are taking them out the door. We made the mistake of putting Millie's leash on her before we put on our shoes. There was some serious pouting over her pokey humans.
This weekend I may have discovered my new favorite food - Zucchini Pie. My in-laws have been on vacation for two weeks. When they come home from out of town I always try to make some food to have waiting for them at their house. Since they were going to be home around midnight I decided on something they could eat for a super easy breakfast/brunch the next day. I have plenty of fresh zucchini to use up. This Zucchini Pie fit my requirements perfectly. The bad thing about making a pie for some is that it is hard to sneak a taste. It smelled so good and I could barely make myself leave it at their house. I came straight home and baked another one - hurray for zucchini abundance! (I also made them peach pie scones, but figured I wouldn't torture you all with those pictures.)
I loved how super easy it was to make and that the final product looked every bit as good as the pictures on the beautiful blog where I found it - The Seasoned Mom.
Overall, my weekend was kind of hit and miss on my eating, but much better than the chow-down-free-for-alls I have allowed in the past. I am very excited to get my walking game on again and I think our group challenge is perfect for me. My goal for this week is to get myself out of bed earlier and squeeze in some miles before work.
In completely unrelated news, if you are looking for a fun summer movie, I highly recommend Pixels. We saw it Friday night and it was the perfect date night for children of the 80's.
