Baking Fun kitchen smells so good.  This past week and weekend, I have been spending my down time taking advantage of all the great food grown during the summer. 

My parents have an apple tree that is producing like crazying!  We went out a picked 3 5 gallon bucketful's and shared with my parents.  With our half we have been able to make some great apple sauce for the winter as well as an Apple Cake with Walnuts that seemed appropriate enough to take to school for our first week back!

What's still left....anyone need some apples?

Today, Matt graciously helped me in the kitchen with the baking.  We started by using the Kitchenaid to shred a gigantic zucchini.  Now, I wish I had a picture of this zucchini before we started, but I didn't think that far in advance, so just trust me when I say HUGE.  Once shredded we had over 4 quarts of zuchinni to bake with.

Here is what we ended up with; 5 loafs of bread and 3 cakes!

Frosted with Hershey bars...that was always Grandma's secret!

Last weekend we also took tomatoes and peppers from our garden and combined them with peppers, jalepeno's and an onion from Matt's dad's garden to make some wonderful salsa.  I already had Matt call his dad and tell him we need more vegetables when he get's ready to pull everything up!

Everything is out of the oven, dishes are washed or loaded in dishwasher and the food is slowly being put in the freezer.  Now it's time to watch some football (Go Steelers), grade a few papers and relax!
