Almond flour zucchini bread (and my dog)


This post was meant to be about this awesome Paleo zucchini bread that I made a few weeks ago and never shared with you, but now that I have a dog I have to sneak a photo of him in, too…look at our little family!

I now understand how people can get obsessed with their dogs. I’m currently not very happy with mine considering he woke me up at 6:30 on a Saturday morning and has done both #1 and #2 in my house today. Grrr. However, he’s a cutie. You should see him go up stairs! (He’s so small that we have to carry him down and it takes him forever to get back up them with his little legs. It’s so cute!)

Okay, anyways, back to our regularly scheduled programming…

A few weeks ago, I had a ton of zucchini and made this beautiful zucchini  bread oatmeal. With lots left over, I attempted a Paleo almond flour zucchini bread, which turned out pretty great as well! My only complaint is that it wasn’t very sweet (actually, it wasn’t sweet at all), but after topping it with peanut butter and nuking it in the microwave for ten seconds, I was really pleased.

I followed this recipe from Running to the Kitchen. Next time, to give it a sweeter taste, I will probably use two bananas instead of just one, so if you’re looking for something sweet, be sure to add more sweetener or an extra banana!



We got a dog!


The title says it all: we got a dog yesterday!


Say hello to Dempsey!

Andy grew up with dogs and has wanted one since before we got married. On the other hand, I definitely did not and am actually pretty scared of them. They are very overwhelming to me, and I really don’t know what to do with them. I’m usually about 90% sure I’m going to get bit at any time.

However, I knew getting a dog was pretty much non-negotiable for Andy, so I eventually got him to agree to hold off until this summer… since he works in a school and has summers off, I figured that would be the best time to get a puppy and train him/her.

We’ve been looking all summer, and it’s been quite a process! Finally, we found this collie/shepherd mix at a local farm. I told Andy we were just going to “look”…

Dempsey & ANdy…so you can see how that ended up 🙂

Does anyone just go to “look” at a puppy and not buy it? I would have to guess “no”…

We’ll see how the next few days go…I am still apprehensive, but the hubs is about as happy as can be! 🙂
