Thank you for sharing this journaling journey with me!   It has been a subject I’ve been trying to explore in more detail for the last year or two, and I’m glad you joined me here.  🙂

Thank you for being part of NanoPoblano!  It was great to meet new friends and touch base with old friends.  Thanks especially to Rarasaur, who puts the whole thing together.  ❤

Funnies

Why Not?

Admiring the Christmas trees displayed in his neighbor’s windows, Peter asks his father, “Daddy, can we have a Hanukkah Tree?”

“What? No, of course not,” says his father.

“Why not?” asks Peter again.

Bewildered, his father replies, “Because the last time we had dealings with a lighted bush we spent 40 years in the wilderness.”

Makes sense to me!  lol

Have a stunning weekend!

Another kind of creative journaling is what’s called Art Journaling.  Instead of writing in your journal, you paint.  Or paste in pictures.  Or color with pencils or crayons or markers.  The sky’s the limit!  Anything but writing, that is.  Use whatever creative element you want to express yourself.

Bits of fabric?  Check!

Stickers?  Stamps?  Check!

Pieces of plants or other botanicals?  Check!

Pet fur?  Check!

Seriously, this is art for arts sake.  Express your feelings in art.  You cannot do it wrong. 

Below are some links to help you get started if you’ve never tried this kind of journaling before.

 

Have you ever art journaled?  What medium did you use?

French Onion Zucchini Bake | i am baker

So, you’re looking for a nice side dish to go with dinner.  Something tasty, not hard to make.  Something maybe a bit oo-la-la.  Maybe even something lower on the carb scale.

You definitely need to try this recipe.  French Onion Zucchini Bake

Being me, I made a couple of substitutions to the recipe.  I used 1 zucchini and 1 onion, and 1 6 oz package of shredded Swiss cheese.  It’s just a lot less pricey than Gruyere and more available to me.  Plus, I used a 10” skillet instead of a 12” since I’d kind of halved the recipe, as I knew my kids wouldn’t eat it.  They don’t like Swiss.  (!!?!)  Also, I omitted the sugar because #KetoGoals. 

I have to say, this may be one of my favorite vegetable dishes ever.  EVER.  Even my husband liked it and he doesn’t like onions.  Yes, it is that good! 

It takes maybe 10-15 mins to put together, and then you throw it in the oven for about half an hour, give or take.  I put it in during the last 30 mins of my roast cooking.  It’s also very forgiving.  One time, I did the stove-top part, and then didn’t put it in the oven until like an hour later, and it turned out great.  So easy!  And so yummy!

French Onion Zucchini Bake

  • French Onion Zucchini Bake combines the amazing flavor of caramelized onions, fresh zucchini, and piles of melty gruyere cheese for a side dish that is sure to impress!  If you love French Onion, make sure to check out my homemade French Onion Soup!

    First things first, let’s talk ingredients.  You will need:

    • Zucchini – We obviously prefer to use our garden zucchini, but if you have to purchase at the supermarket, select medium-sized zucchini that are firm and feel heavy for their size. They should be green or yellow with shiny skin.
    • Yellow Onions – There are a ton of different onions to choose from, but I stick with yellow onions because they have a signature sweetness when cooked.
    • Gruyere Cheese – If you are looking to substitute this with a different cheese you want to select one that melts very easily.  I would recommend a Compte’ or Jarlsberg.
    • Butter – We use unsalted in this recipe because we prefer to adjust the salt level by adding kosher salt at the end.
    • Worchestershire Sauce
    • Beef Broth
    • Granulated Sugar
    • Thyme – Fresh thyme can be substituted for dried but you need to adjust the amount.
    • Kosher salt and freshly cracked pepper
