Moderation in all things! Today I will celebrate Julia Child’s would-be 100th Birthday!
A box of apricots needed attention and I pulled out Baking with Julia.
The apricots turned into a modified Lekvar, pureed apricots, brown sugar, lemon zest and juice. I just heated it through, will let it cool, then save it in small amounts for smoothies, winter oatmeal and pastries, anytime! It tastes Wonderful!
Today’s zucchini was a big one, so I sliced it, sauteed in olive oil, then simmered in lemon juice and chicken stock. I browned some of the leftover bread crumbs in butter, sprinkled those and some shredded cheddar on top and broiled the slices. When they were bubbly and starting to brown, I sprinkled more fresh lemon juice and zest, salt & pepper. It was irresistible!!
