"Mom, what's for lunch?" Link Up

Today was a weird day. I am trying to get school plans done. But life goes on in the middle. And wouldn't you know, those kids wanted to eat somewhere around 12:00 noon.

We needed something quick, easy, healthy and tasty. A look in my fridge revealed a bowl of grated zucchini. My computer-like mind remembered a recipe for zucchini patties I had seen in an Amish cookbook. So, I set out to make said zucchini patties. I only kind-of sort-of followed the recipe. I also looked one up on The amounts I used are approximate:

3 cups shredded zucchini
3 large eggs
1-1/2 cups shredded low-fat cheese
Italian bread crumbs (enough to soak up the excess liquid)
Olive oil
Marinara sauce

Combine all ingredients. Heat a griddle over medium heat. Add a bit of olive oil to the griddle--just enough to keep the patties from sticking. Spoon heaping tablespoons of the zucchini mixture onto the griddle. Cook until golden brown, then flip over and do the same to the other side. Serve with warmed marinara.

These definitely fit the prescribed bill. And . . . the kids liked them.

So, I got to thinking, "What if we could start a beginning of the homeschool McLinky to share easy, quick, healthy lunch recipes.

Of course, that set me into a search on how to make blog buttons and how to set up a McLinky. I have a feeling there are a couple of bugs, but, hey, it's my first try.

Come join me. Add your recipe, and link up.

What's for lunch, Mom?

  1. The use of platinum as a pinnacle precious metal is very much the replica watches of this collection. Usually I have a clear vision on what I think about a watch and its brand, but here I have more mixed feelings of concern and rolex replica sale than anything else. So, humor me a bit as I try and frame it. Specs about the watch, I get to at the end. A blued hand for the pointer rolex submariner replica date further assists legibility and reduces dial clutter, keeping the overall design simple and elegant. The main replica watches sale for this might be that the machines used to produce hands and indices are set up for gold and replica watches platinum such small pieces would be incredibly difficult to craft from platinum, possibly the most challenging metals to work with in the luxury replica watches uk industry.
