Weekly Favorites

There were so many great and wonderful ideas on blogland this week.  Here are just a few of my favorites. 

Baked Zucchini with Mozzarella from Jamie Cooks It Up - This got a 2 thumbs up from everyone in the family except Boo Boo who just doesn't like anything zucchini.  We will be having this again.  I did not have any Johnny's Garlic Bread Seasoning, but I found a recipe for it on Our Best Bites.  We liked it alot too, will be great for garlic bread and pizza.  Check it our here.

I wanted to find a way to preserve the delicious cherries we have had this summer.  I already made Cherry Jam, but I really wanted to find an alternative to the overly red marischino cherries my kids like on top of their ice cream.  I found the solution at Simple Bites.  With cherries BOGO this week, we will be making more than a few pints of these.  I plan on adding vanilla beans to some and almond flavoring to others.  I might even get adventurous and add bourbon and make some bourbon cherries that my husband pays $8.00 a jar for at the distillery.

Finally, what geography teacher can pass up a chalkboard globe!?!  I can't wait to make this great project I found at Under the Table and Dreaming and put it in my classroom.  I will be the perfect place to write down test and project dates so they don't get erased from the whiteboard and forgotten.  Now, if I can just find a cheap globe.......
