#VeggieTalesFun #WeaveMade #ad

A while back a dear friend recommended to me a new show the her kids were watching, fun, entertain, and full of great values and lessons of faith.
Of course I was very intrigue and we went directly home that day just to watch the new show.
And let me tell you VeggieTales is not only fun but it is also full of great lessons for my kids, a great understanding of values of faith and a huge deference from others shows too all the snappy songs but you can see how they learn more and more everyday and share with there friends a new way to see the challenges of growing up.

You can follow there adventures on Facebook.

The best news we have this week was to know the now we can have our own VeggieTales at home, and you too, you can fun this funny and amazing characters at your local Walmart and that was exactly what we did.

VeggieTales has been making great songs and shows for years, but now it is time to bring the stories that you love to life with their toys. Your kids will be able to sing and play all day long with the toys available at Walmart.

This was a total adventure definitely going shopping with my girls is really fun. We enter the store and as all of you know it is a BIG store, so we play a game and of course the price was an adorable VeggieTales toy of their choice.

We start our game very easy, first we count the aisle, then we read the list in the aisle and last we look for the toys with the picture I show to the girls, as a good VeggieTales always said, togethers is always easy and better to find the solution, so we play until we find the toys.

My girls were so happy and my little daughter, which “won” the game, was so exited to choose the new addition to the family.

  • 1 lb zucchini
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 7 Tb olive oil, more if needed
  • 1/2 lb (about 1 1/2 cups)  thinly sliced yellow onions
  • 2 slice green peppers (about 1 cup)
  • 2 cloves mashed garlic
  • 1 lb ripe red tomatoes peeled, seeded, and juiced
  • 3 Tb minced parsley
  • Salt and pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS

Peel the eggplant and cut into lengthwise slices 3/8 inch thick, about 3 inches long, and 1 inch wide. Scrub the zucchini slice off the two ends, and cut the zucchini into slices about the same size as the eggplant slices. Place the vegetables in a bowl and toss with the salt. Let stand for 30 minutes. Drain. dry each slice in a towel.

One layer at a time, saute the eggplant and then the zucchini in hot olive oil for about a minute on each side to brown very lightly. Remove to a side dish.
In the same skillet, cook the onions and peppers slowly in olive oil for about 10 minutes, or until tender but not browned. Stir in the garlic and season to taste.

Slice the tomato pulp into 3/8 inch strips. Lay them over the onions and peppers. Season with salt and pepper. Cover the skillet and cook over low heat for 5 minutes or until tomatoes have begun to render their juice. Uncover, baste the tomatoes with the juices, raise heat and boil for several minutes, until juice has almost entirely evaporated.

Place a third of the tomato mixture in the bottom of the casserole and sprinkle over it 1 tablespoon of parsley. Arrange half of the eggplant and zucchini on top, then half the remaining tomatoes and parsley. Put in the rest of the eggplant and zucchini, and finish with the remaining tomatoes and parsley.

Cover the casserole and simmer over low heat for 10 minutes. Uncover, tip casserole and baste with the rendered juices. Correct seasoning if necessary. Raise heat slightly ans cook uncovered for about 15 minutes more,basting a spoonful or two of flavored olive oil. Be careful of your heat, do not let the vegetables scorch in the bottom of the casserole.

Set aside uncovered. Reheat slowly at serving time or serve cold.

TIP OF THE DAY

I highly recommend the following steps to be taken before freezing vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and zucchini.

1. Cut off the vegetables in the same size.
2. Cook for one minute in salted boiling water.
3. Move the vegetables to a bowl filled with ice cold water, this stops the cooking immediately.
4. Place on paper towels to remove as much water as possible.
5. Spread on a tray and place in the freezer for half an hour.
6. Store in plastic bags and freeze completely.

Can last between 3 to 6 months.

This is the method I personally use to freeze my vegetables.
