My Favorite Way to Cook Zucchini and Potatoes...

First of all I love this tool! 
You get the perfect slices using it...

Hold the zucchini and just run it across the blade...

The zucchini falls into the container attached...

Nice thin slices.  Works great on cucumbers as well.

Place zucchini in aluminum foil in grill pan. 
I just discovered lining my grill pan with aluminum foil  
makes clean up so much easier!

If you don't have a grill pan, just wrap the zucchini up in aluminum foil,
but don't close completely.  
You'll want to stir them while they're grilling. 
Sprinkle with salt, pepper and a maybe a tablespoon of butter.
You don't need much butter at all.  

Cook until zucchini is soft and tender...

Now on to the potatoes.
First boil the potatoes until they are fork tender.
Then cut them in half, or you can slice them. 

Spread some olive oil on a sheet of aluminum foil. 
Yes, I poured a little too much here.
Place potatoes on top, sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Wrap them up, but don't completely close them.
You'll want to turn them while they're on the grill.

Potatoes all done.

So crispy!

I also grilled a hamburger to go along with my favorite vegetables. 
Looks and tastes DELICIOUS!

I'll be making these two side dishes until it's too cold to stand outside and grill.

Veggie Pizza...

I know, I know, I haven't updated this blog in AGES!

Don't worry, I've been feeding my family!
Just needed a break.  

If you want to find out what I've been up to, 
head over to my other blog Walking on Sunshine.

Here's a great recipe I made 2 weeks ago.  
It was so good, I made it again last week!

First a little explanation.  
I was making this recipe just for myself.  

My kids would NEVER eat pizza with just veggies.  
So I only used half the pizza dough.
I made the recipe as usual and after the first rise, 
I cut the dough into two pieces.
I put the unused piece in a plastic bag and froze it.

And please DON'T feel you have to make your own pizza dough!
I've used store-bought pizza dough in the past 
and even pizza dough purchased from a pizzeria.

The tomatoes I used were fresh from the garden.
Are there any other kind to eat? 

And the zucchini I used was leftover zucchini that 
I had grilled for dinner the previous night.


1 recipe Pizza Dough
1 Tomato, sliced pretty thin
Mozzarella Cheese
Olive Oil

Spread out your dough.  Brush the dough with the Olive Oil.
Top with the sliced tomatoes, zucchini, mozzarella cheese...

Bake at 425 until golden brown and crispy on the bottom...

This was the most delicious pizza I've had in ages!

Let me know if you try it!
