Blogging from A-Z • Z

Today is brought to you by the letter "Z"!

(Disclaimer: Although this is typically a blog about my beadwork, I do let other parts of my life seep into this blog.  Food and beverage is a huge part of my life as I am the marketing director of a fantastic restaurant group!)

Z is for zucchini!  

Oh yes, we had plenty of zucchini on the farm last year, and it would show up frequently on weekly farm-to-fork specials!

But before we get to the zucchini as food, I want to say THANK YOU to all the faithfuls that visited my blog this month to see what food or beverage I would be blogging about.  You all really lift me up with your visits and comments!!  Thank you for making this challenge so much fun! 

So without further is some zucchini!

And finally....have you ever heard of the game Scattergories?  That is one of my favorite board games, even though I almost always lose.  Basically you have a sheet of paper with 12 categories, and you roll a 26 sided alphabet die, and you need to come up with a person, place or thing that fits the category that starts with the letter you just rolled.  You get two points if you come up with a person place or thing that has two words that start with the assigned letter.  So with that, I'd like to finish with a two pointer.  This was a cocktail we featured last summer....called the Zambezi Zinger!

So that concludes the 2016 Blogging from A-Z Challenge!  I'll be back soon with some beading update!  Thank you again to everyone who visited!! 


  1. Great job with A-Z!!!! I have a love/hate relationship with zuccini. I don't mind it in soups but that's about it.

  2. more delicious food! I do so love zucchini ... my father-in-law used to fill the garden with peppers and zucchini to the point where we'd run out of recipes to deal with his prosperous garden! a few of these recipes would have been so handy - ha! .... and Scattergories is a favorite in our house, along with lots of other word games!

  3. Zucchini is such a staple when it is in season and you have made it extra special by making it the closer of A-Z. I will miss checking in and seeing the food a few times a week, though your beading makes me pretty darn excited too. You really showed us some beautiful food and drinks and I loved every minute of my time here this month. You are a fantastic food photographer,Amy!


Thank you for your comments!! They really mean a lot!
