Tomato and Zucchini Bake

Hi Everyone,

Half way through the week!  I am looking so forward to the weekend!!!  No plans just enjoying myself.  I told myself that I want to do something every weekend, even something small to make me feel good and smile.  I’m thinking a nice hike through the Berkeley Hills this weekend.  Hope Little Jenny is up to it!!!

Since I have an over abundance of tomatoes and zucchini I decided to do a spin-off of my Grilled Zucchini Pizza.

This bake is so simple and mighty delicious!!!  I used one of my 8 ball zucchini’s and 2 medium tomatoes freshly picked from my garden.  If you don’t have an 8 ball zucchini, regular zucchini will work too!!!

For added flavor I added mozzarella cheese and basil to my bake.  Yum!!!  For my Husband who is not a zucchini fan, I added pepperoni to his.  All I can say is he ate it right up!  I swear I can only get that man to eat his veggies if I add pepperoni or bacon to it.  I personally love it fresh!!!

I want to tell you that I have been keeping up on my 90 day workout program.  I feel great about it and I even lost a couple of pounds that I gained from my Las Vegas trip.  So now I’m back to where I began with.  I have about 8 more pounds to lose.  I’m going to enjoy my workout journey this time around.  I’m going to do it because I like it, not because I have to.  I’m changing my mindset with exercise.  I guess it’s all because it’s a stress reliever and I am loving the Chalean Extreme workout.  I do enjoy strength training, it makes me feel strong and that I can do anything.  I guess you can say I am on a workout high right now!  🙂
