Day Lilies, a Flimsy and a Zucchini Recipe

Several people asked me for the Zucchini Pineapple Loaf recipe.  So I will add it to the bottome of this post.  But first I want to show you my scrappy flimsy.  I started this a couple of years ago, but put it away when my machine started to give me problems.  I sewed a couple more rows and now I think I have had enough of this one.  I am calling it finished.

This quilt top reminds me of the Day Lilies I have blooming in my garden at the moment.  I love these.

This is a gorgeous peach coloured one.

Another peach coloured one, except this one has a dark centre.

A double peach lily.

A yellow day lily.

I have more, but I will save them for another day.

Now for the Pineapple Zucchini Loaf recipe.  This is from a "Company's Coming" book by Jean Pare called "Muffins and More".  It is my favourite book by her.

Zucchini Pineapple Loaf

2               eggs
1/2 cup     cooking oil
1 cup        sugar
1 cup        unpeeled, shredded zucchini
1/2 cup     crushed pineapple, drained
1 tsp         vanilla

2 cups       all purpose flour
1 tsp          baking soda
1/2 tsp       baking powder
1/2 tsp       salt
3/4 tsp       cinnamon
1/4 tsp       nutmeg
1/2 cup      chopped nuts  (I have used 1 cup raisins instead of nuts and it turned out great)


Beat eggs, oil and sugar.  Sir in zucchini, pineapple and vanilla.

Measure remaining ingredients in another bowl.  Stir.

Pour all at once into batter.  Stir to moisten.  Pour into greased loaf pan 9x5x3 inches.  I use a bunt pan sprayed with PAM.  Bake in a 350 degree F oven for about 1 hour.  Test to see if it is done.  A toothpick will come out clean.  Cool for 10 minutes.  Turn loaf out to cool on a rack. This is delicious if cut into slices and spread with butter.  Yield 1 loaf.

LOVE your scrappy quilt, Hettie. I have been tidying and found an eye-spy flimsy that I need to finish. I like the way you pieced some of your squares and can see myself copying your idea. (Thanks!)

Thanks for posting to TN&TN's WIP Wednesday!
