Comfort Food

Comfort Food

So, with two girls home sick with high fevers, what makes everything better? Comfort food of course. Last night I made some Tuna Casserole. I love that it’s so easy to put together, and tastes like childhood! What I don’t like is that only Cassidy and Alyssa like it. How can they be related to me and not want to eat the whole casserole? I don’t get it.

So, to make things better, I found a bag of shredded zucchini in the freezer. Hanging on from summer, it was calling my name. Seeing that earlier this week I made apple bread, I still had a taste for homemade breads. I whipped up a batch of Kari’s Crunchy Zucchini Bread…yum.
