Sweet tea and zucchini pie

and grilled pepperoni pizza...

Zucchini Pie

2 ready made pie crusts pre-baked as directed. Or make your own!
Preheat oven to 325.

Saute 1 clove minced garlic in 1 TBS olive oil.
Chop one onion and add.
Stir in 1 sliced zucchini and 1 sliced summer squash. Saute until tender. Add salt and pepper to taste.

In a bowl combine 1.5 cups shredded mozzarella, 1.5 cups shredded cheddar and one cup mayonnaise.
Slice 1-2 tomatoes.

Layer in each pie shell: tomatoes, zucchini mixture, top with half the cheese.

Bake for 40 minutes.


I got a new cookbook - Country Cooking with Trisha Yearwood. Amazing recipes that my Grandma cooked and my Mommy. This recipe is from there - only I didn't put in the water chestnuts because John doesn't like them.

The pie in the back has a cup of spaghetti sauce instead of the tomatoes. It turned out a little sweeter. I like the one with tomatoes better.

John hardly ever buys himself anything. Today, he got a smoker grill. So, Jaima and Daddy went through the recipe book that came with it and decided to grill a pizza since we didn't have any beef thawed. It turned out EXCELLENT and we ate it before I could take a pic. Jaima is one good cook!

I also love a good glass of sweet tea. I usually make a homemade syrup, but I cheated today and made it with my Keurig coffee maker. I like to drink the first glass right after it's brewed, when it's still kinda warm. Trisha Yearwood said that in her book, too. Then, I have to have tons of ice for the rest. I figure since I don't put sugar in my coffee or hot tea anymore, I can indulge in my summertime favorite!
