Here's how I hid the Zucchini; she requested to have Mac & Cheese for dinner and I obliged with a bit of a twist. I knew I couldn't just shred or chop up some Zucchini and add it in her Mac & Cheese... so I cheated *gasps* Yes, I pureed it and added it into my favorite Mac & Cheese recipe; then sprinkled it with some more cheese and baked it until the top was golden brown. It was oozing of gooey yummy cheesy goodness and not a site of Zucchini to be found; except in every bite but she didn't seem to notice or care.
|mission accomplished w/a bit of cheating =)|
To celebrate my success, I decided to make this yummy peachy blueberry iced tea. Super simple and refreshing. Here's some simple ingredients and instructions .
1/2 -1lbs of fresh peaches pitted and sliced
1 cup of simple syrup
5 tea bags of your choice
Steep your tea bags for about 5 mins. then set aside to let it cool. Puree the peaches in a blender until smooth. Pour into a jar and add simple syrup and stir.
Once tea has cooled down, pour into the jar with your peach puree and stir. Add a few peach slices or chunks or just leave as is over ice and you're done!
If you like your tea sweeter or less sweet, you can always adjust the sugar/simple syrup. Feel free to add blueberries or anything else you like. Add a sprig of mint to make it more refreshing! Use honey, agave or other sweeteners in place of sugar. Sit back and enjoy a cup of this peachy blueberry iced tea!
