Zucchini Bread, Again

One funny thing about blogging is that often the same topics come up every year. I have enough old readers drop off and new ones come onboard every year that I should just set my blog up to post an endless loop, but for now I will try to breathe some new life into what I’m doing rather than rerun past posts.

We had a touch of rain one day last Friday. I love it when it rains because I am afforded the opportunity to do a little more reading and even do a little indoor work. At this time of year indoor work means to me making zucchini bread. We always grow it and I make several loaves that we freeze them to have them for occasions throughout the year. So far this year I’ve made 16 loaves. The hard part is not sampling a loaf before you put them away. It’s not unusual to lose one to predation before the others are cooled and wrapped.

It seems that everyone that tries this bread wants the recipe because it is absolutely the best. Zucchini Bread Recipe

That sounds yummy. It's been years since I've had any. Food is not my friend. :(

I copied the recipe first time around but I think this post (and the recipe) is worth a repeat – kind of like a good book.
If you find yourself with too many loaves (fat chance), mail me some! I’m getting far too lazy in the baking department.

My office is a good depository for people that may find themselves with too many zucchini from a bountiful harvest. (shameless hint)

Try as I might, the squash bugs always seem to get my zucchini. Darn it. I remember long ago, seemed like gardener I knew had an excess of zucchini and were searching for somebody with whom to share it. I guess these days I just don't know the right people.

An "excess of zucchini". Putting my likes and dislikes aside for a moment, have you ever heard of anyone who doesn't have enough zucchini in season? When the season hits it seems like you have to drive down the road and dodge piles of excess zucchini. When I was a kid my mom grew some (several) and every time I left the house I was forced to take a bag of it with me. Even if I was going to the store or the library or even to school she was like "Here, take a bag of zucchini with you." I took to dropping it off on random front porches just to get rid of it. I'll bet if I had started dropping it in the ocean I could have increased our landmass by at least 10%. An excess of zucchini. Ack!

I had the rare opportunity to taste your zucchini bread at an office related party! I know you are not fond of those types of things...oh yea, that's hall food you are not fond of. Anyway, your zucchini bread was fabulous. I hope you are in the sharing mood....the halls are empty...lacking good hall food.

Tango, That frees you up to drink more.

Beth, Sorry Darlin, there is never any extra, however if you visit, you'll be sure to have some with afternoon tea.

Auntie, Sorry, I use every one of them.

Donna, I've never live in an area with that problem. To bad for you, but it looks like the rest of your garden has been plentiful this year.

Darev, it's easy to grow too much, but we always seem to have the right amount with two plants.

Amy, or cream cheese. This recipe stands alone pretty well.

Anon, I can donate one to your next function. Hall food...disgusting.

g, if she makes it you may change your mind about it.

My recipe for zuchinni bread is identical except for the chocolate. Everytime I make it I marvel at the genius who came up with it. You can tell they were desperate to get rid of some zuchinni! Also, that much oil, sugar, and nuts would make just about anything taste good.

JB, Did I give it to you or did you get it from Theater Ally Presents Cook Book, or somewhere else?

Wow! The zucchini bread recipe is fantastic! Special thanks from our banana-allergic household member and the kids don't even know they're eating kinda healthy!

Kinda of healthy except for the sugar and oil, but I'm glad you enjoyed it. The recipe turns out a good loaf every time.
