A Fall Table Setting and Zucchini Zots....

I set a simple table with Mackenzie-Childs checks and Pioneer Woman flowers...

The centerpiece is an artificial pumpkin and I also added a mini vase of marigolds, mint and chives.  (This is a good way to use the last of your herbs)

We finished the last bottle of Rose.....this bottle is so pretty, but the Rose is just average!

I made the table runner and painted the wine glasses!

The bread and butter plates held a pressed butter leaf....

One of the appetizers I served was a new recipe I found online

The recipe for Zucchini Zots comes from Debbie-Dabble's Blog .....

....and I added an extra seasoning to the mixture....

...a little cajun spice!

Mix together: 
2 c grated zucchini
1/4 c parmesan cheese ( I used parmesan/romano)
1/2 c mozzarella cheese
1/2 Italian bread crumbs
3 lg eggs
season with: onion and garlic salt, parsley and fresh ground pepper
1 t cajun seasoning
Press into well greased 12 muffin cup pan and top with some mozzarella
Bake @ 400' for 25 min

These were a hit, and made a perfect appetizer!
