Gluten, Dairy, and Egg free Zucchini bread

This bread is really easy and YUMMY!

Gluten, Dairy, and Egg free Zucchini bread

*I use a large food processor*

1 Large Zucchini
4 eggs (I use Ener-G egg replacer)
2 cups sugar
1 cup oil (i use sunflower)
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free All purpose flour
1 TBL Xanthan gum
1 TBL cinamon
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder

I chop the zucchini in the food processor as tiny as I can get it. Then I mix in the egg replacer, sugar, oil and vanilla. Then I add the dry ingredients. Make sure it's mixed well. Use (2) 9x5x3 loaf pans and bake at 375 for 1 hour or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Coloring Easter eggs

We put our eggs in metal whisks and put the dye in large heavy glasses. It was the cleanest egg coloring activity that we've had! No dropped broken eggs or spilled dye. We had a blast!!

Safety Tat: child saftey tattoos

Go HERE and check these out! These are great to use when you go places, you can have your information on the tattoo, just incase you get separated from your child. Especially handy if your child is nonverbal. They come in a variety of designs including special needs, which is a great way to let the people helping your child know why they may not be able to communicate their needs. They also have allergy versions so noone gives your child anything they are allergic to. They have 2 versions of tattoos, one is like a regular tattoo that needs water the other is a peel and stick that you write on. Find out more HERE.

Toy Story pre-order deal !!!! Monday is last day!!

I did this today at Toysrus and it worked!! Monday is the last day to pre-order the Toy Story movies because they are released Tuesday!

If you pre-order Toy Story 1 Blueray/DVD combo pack $16.99 & Toy Story 2 Blueray/DVD combo pack $16.99 you get $15 instantly on another movie. I got Princess and the Frog DVD ($19.99) it gave it to me for free!! For some reason it took another $4.99 off! I only paid $10.58. which is the $5 per movie pre-order deposit, that will come off the price of the movies when I pick them up on Tuesday. I also logged into disneymovierewards.com and typed the upc codes from our old vhs Toy Story 1 & 2 and was able to print an upgrade coupon of $10 off each movie (total of (2) $10 off coupons) When I go back on Tuesday the deal will look like this:
16.99 + 16.99 -10 pre-order deposit- $10 coupon Toy Story 1 upgrade - $10 coupon Toy Story 2 upgrade= $3.98 (+tax) !!! total of $13.98 + tax for the 3 movies.

There is (1) FREE movie ticket in each Toy Story combo pack, to Toy Story 3, so we'll have (2) FREE tickets!! I'm also going to turn in the Band-aid rebate on Princess and the Frog for $5 and maybe the Success rice rebate for $5. So you end up making money on this!!
