Breakfast and Dinner

Met the guys of The Jubilee Project (!!!!) on Friday; they were just as amazing in real-life as in their videos. I'm definitely a "Jubileever" now! :D

They've definitely renewed the hope I have in a school club I'm in -- we're a branch of an international non-profit organization that does public health and medical volunteer work abroad. It's been so difficult making some members who are going on our trips passionate and enthusiastic about volunteering; everyone's been so caught up with either the "traveling" and "vacation" aspect of the volunteer trip, or in school work that even fundraising for part of their trip (so they don't have to pay all of it out of pocket) has been hard! 

Anyway, after an eventful night, I woke up on Saturday and decided to make a very simple breakfast. Then, tonight I followed that with a super simple Pear and Zucchini Medley as a side-dish for dinner. See below!

1. As many slices of bread you want (thick slices; french bread; artisan bread, etc. -- not sure if pre-sliced white bread would work as well)
2. Butter, softened
3. Breakfast sausage
4. Toppings (ie. garlic powder, cheddar/swiss cheese, powdered sugar)

1. Turn oven to 350F
2. Lightly butter one, or both sides of bread on baking tray
3. Sprinkle with toppings of your choice
4. Place breakfast sausage on baking tray next to bread
5. Bake for about 15 minutes, turning sausages at the 8 or 10 minute mark (or until sausages are done!)
1. If you're hoping to save $$, buy bread from the on-sale "expires today!" section. I also have a friend who lives near a bakery and she goes "bread dumpster diving" after hours (unfortunately, I don't live near a bakery)!
2. Slice and freeze bread if it's about to go bad or become stale to retain whatever moisture there is left.

Pear and Zucchini Medley

1. 1-2 zucchini, depending on size and how much you want to make, in slices
2. 1 pear (don't remember what it was called! but it was green and pretty hard)
3. Seasoning
4. 1/3 tbs. vegetable / cooking oil

1. On a medium-sized pan/skillet over medium heat, stir-fry pears and zucchini slices. Season as desired.
