Day 116

Well I woke up and got ready for school. Ally spent the night and came to campus with me. I made zucchini banana bread for my class that I taught today. I needed to bring in a snack and I figured i would make something instead of picking it up at the store.

For Breakfast: Cassi, Ally, and I taste tested the banana bread. Coffee.

Went to my first class then I met Ally at a library to print some things out for my class. This ended up taking a while and I just about got into a fight with the printer.

For Lunch: Salad from the school's salad bar. Romaine, red bell peppers, garbanzo beans, egg, carrots, and sunflower seeds, with a balsamic vinaigrette.

I taught my class today, there are 19 people in it and I think it's going to be really interesting. I was pretty nervous before the class, but I calmed down during it. And people loved my banana bread. Here's the recipe!

Zucchini Banana Bread
3 eggs
3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 cup grated zucchini
2 bananas, mashed
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease and flour two 8x4 inch bread loaf pans. In a large bowl, beat eggs until light yellow and frothy. Add applesauce, brown sugar, white sugar grated zucchini, bananas, and vanilla; blend together until well combined. Stir in the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix in the cranberries and nuts. Divide the batter evenly between the two prepared loaf pans. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 50 minutes. Allow to cool in the loaf pans on a wire rack before removing and serving.

The original recipe is off of a website, I modified it, with adding apple sauce and a couple other little changes, this is my modified version!

After class got out I went home a basically had to get ready to go right away for work. Work was terribly slow, which is disappointing because I haven't made any money all week, I was hoping friday night would bring in some cash.

Ally, Mom, and Tim were downtown shopping and picked me up from work so we could head up to Arlington. I had Mauricio from work make me a little something to take with me . . .

For Dinner: Steamed Broccoli, with spicy sauce on the side. My work makes this sauce that I love and I put it on a lot of different things, I will have to find out what the ingredients are. I think it's basically just pureed hot peppers with Olive oil, but I am not sure.

Up to Arlington!
