Green Blessings - Zucchini Style
This time of year we always have plenty of zucchini, at the market, in the garden, at the office, just about anywhere you look, you can find some. Today I found a lot, which is good. Some Saturdays I wake up and know what I'll be making for my delivery on Sunday and already have a grocery list and a delivery plan. Today was not that day. I woke up at 3:00 AM and have felt my brain moving in six different directions and none of them got me to a recipe I wanted to try this evening. I do try to make the snacks seasonal, to a degree, but honestly at one point this afternoon I had about given up and thought I'd just make scones. I thought about it and turned it down. Then I remembered when we were little, before we began summering in Maine, mom would often make zucchini bread in the summer. Now, let me say, she didn't garden much. I think she got the zucs from a neighbor or a friend we knew as "Cinderella". It was the 70's and women baking often used mixes because that was "cool". But this recipe was something made from scratch, and it was delicious, it makes 2 loaf pans. (Don't ask me how many times I multiplied it for tomorrow! LOL) I hope you enjoy!
