Zucchini Slice

Alone, lonely, lonesome…..

Elly and Mia went back to school this week leaving me alone, lonely and lonesome. I wander the house looking for someone to talk to, giggle with, take to the movies, pick up after, even be ignored by. But no, there’s no one. Oh sad of sad days, I do so love the school holidays when I have my babies here all day.

Last time the girls went back to school I wrote about their attitude to the humble sandwich and their desire to eat something else on the weekend. I guess it get it, but I do think I could eat sandwiches every day so long as it wasn’t always Vegemite. Anyway, because I adore them and like to make them happy I thought I’d come up with something they could take in their lunch boxes that didn’t involve vegemite, peanut butter, jam or slices of bread.

Zucchini Slice. The idea came from the gorgeous and bubbly Julie Goodwin because she makes this for her boys and it looked so good I just had to try it. I’ve Moodie-fied it quite a bit by reducing the amount of eggs/oil/cheese, replaced plain flour with wholemeal flour, upped the zucchini, added some spinach and removed the bacon (but feel free to add some low fat bacon). And guess what? It’s yummier than yummy. I make it for the girls’ lunches (it freezes really well), but we also have it for lunch on the weekend with a big salad or for dinner when I need something quick and tasty but light and healthy. Served hot or cold, it’s a winner that you’ll make time and time again.

Do you like having the house filled with family or do you dream of days filled with peace and solitude? And, do you like a good sandwich like I do?
