Recipes 8/16

My garden is at an in between phase right now, so I'm not producing much. I started going to the farmer's market again, until mine picks up. Here's a few recipes I made from farmer's market goodies.

Pineapple Zucchini Bread
(This one if from my mom. It is sooo good! I haven't ever put in the cherries, but I have tried
it with and without nuts. I've also never done muffins, just bread.)

3 eggs

2 cups sugar

1 cup oil

2 teaspoons vanilla

2 cups zucchini -- grated

3 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup pineapple -- crushed

1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)

1/2 cup maraschino cherries (optional)

Beat eggs, sugar, oil, and vanilla. Add zucchini, flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, pineapples, nuts, and cherries. Pour into two greased 5 x 9 inch loaf pans or 24 muffin cups.

Bake at 325 degrees for about 1 hour for loaves, or 20 minutes for muffins. (24 Servings)

Makes: 2 loaves or 24 muffins

Black-Eyed Peas over Pasta (serves 4)

5 slices bacon, chopped and cooked until crisp ( set aside)

1 yellow onion

1 bell pepper

1 jalapeno/serrano (optional)

1 italian sausage ( I use hot)

around 2 cups diced tomatoes

8 oz egg noodles

5-10 diced mushrooms

1-2 cups fresh black-eyed peas ( to your liking)

cook onion, peppers, sausage until sausage cooked through and veggies soft

add mushrooms/peas and cook for another minute or 2

add tomatoes and enough water to covPublish Poster peas

bring to a boil and cook until peas are soft (30 mins to an hour)

serve over egg noodles

put sprinkled bacon and basil on top

(Forgot to mention ... add salt and pepper as your cooking to taste)
