Zucchini Bread, Take Two







What do you do with more volunteer zucchini than you could ever hope for? Why, make Zucchini bread of course.

I didn't plant zucchini this year, but as sprouts started emerging, blossoms started blooming and fruits started growing, I found a few zucchini plants growing full speed. A seed or two must have survived over the winter and found their way into my pumpkin patch.

In my search for the perfect recipe, I found the Paula Dean version, which is exactly what I was looking for. The only change I make is using orange juice rather than water. Yesterday, my boys and I harvested our last zucchini of the year, made several loaves and added them to the others we have in our freezer. We sliced and froze individual pieces to make for a quick breakfast or snack in the upcoming winter mornings.

Happy Autumn, my friends!
