"What's For Dinner?" - Zucchini and Ground Beef Skillet with No Knead Bread

What's for dinner? Honestly, I am terrible at meal planning. It's just not how I roll. Sure, I plan if I am having people over and I might think of something a day ahead, but generally,  I am the kind of person who comes up with a dinner plan a couple of hours before it's time to serve dinner. So, I thought it would be fun to share some of the dinners I come up with from time to time.

Tonight, I had a craving for some homemade bread. And what better to go with bread than a veggie centered meal? It's nearing the end of our garden harvest and I happened to have two large zucchini and generous handful of cherry tomatoes to use. Whenever I have fresh zucchini from the garden, my go-to meal is Zucchini and Ground Beef Skillet. It's basically a zucchini boat, but less labor intensive and certainly faster to make. It's light, and summery, and delicious.

Brown Butter Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

My grandma was a wonderful baker. Her house always smelled like fresh baked bread. When you visited grandma, you could count on her having a cookie jar full of a variety of her homemade cookies. You never knew what kind of cookie you would pull out of the cookie jar, but it didn't matter because they were all good. These brown butter oatmeal raisin remind me of Grandma's chewy oatmeal raisin cookies, I think that's why I like them so much. I hope you will too!
