Garden Bunco

Happy Thursday! πŸ™‚ It’s almost the weekend. I’m excited because the boy graduates tomorrow. Super proud of that kid.

I wanted to share the zucchini’s that came from my garden. They are massive!

It was a perfect time to pick them because last night was “Garden Bunco” and I was hosting! I made zucchini pizza’s, using the zucchini instead of a crust. Low-carb, baby!

They turned out so great! The recipe is below – it’s an easy and quick one.

We also had:

A meat and cheese plate; Cucumber, tomato and cheese salad (so refreshing).

Hummus with veggies and pita chips; Celery with peanut butter and raisins.

Walnut, strawberry and fresh spinach salad – from Tracy’s garden; Toffee dessert bars.

Sadly, I missed Falon’s amazing strawberry shortcake bar! I also made flower cupcakes.

It was such a fun night! We had the window’s open too since we have a freak storm come through the Valley last night. I love when rain cools down the desert during hot days. πŸ™‚

We also had a little shopping center going on from Dani’s boutique, Crystal Wearables in Chandler. I wanted to buy everything! They have cute blouses for work, maxi dresses for evening summer parties and crystal bras, for a special night with your hunny. πŸ™‚

Here’s a blouse I bought last night. It has the mullet style in the back, which I love. I paired it with grey rolled skinny jeans from Forever 21 and my favorite cork/grey wedges.

Have a great day! πŸ™‚ I’m heading to happy hour at Casey Moore’s after work to thank my friend Courtney for being an amazing nurse, since it’s National Nurse’s Week.

Zucchini Pizza


1 large zucchini, sliced
1 8 oz can tomato sauce
3/4 cup mozzarella cheese
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp basil
salt and pepper, to taste
2 Tbsp olive oil


Set oven to 350 degrees. Saute sliced zucchini with olive oil in a medium pan until tender and slightly brown. Arrange on a Silpat or sprayed baking sheet. Heat tomato sauce in a small pot and add garlic powder, basil, and salt and pepper. Place a small spoonful of heated sauce onto each zucchini slice, then add pinches of the mozzarella cheese until gone. Bake in oven for 10-15 minutes or until cheese is melted and a little golden brown.
