What is it with zucchini? If you miss one day in the garden, those sweet little miniature zucchinis that are smaller than the blossom still hanging on to the end of them suddenly turn into monster-sized zucchini baseball bats.
I prefer the zucchini somewhere in between the two – a little bigger than just two bites, but not so big that they are six inches in diameter, full of seeds and the length of my arm. When they get that big, there is nothing else to do with them except…bake zucchini bread!
I love zucchini bread, but I’m not sure why it’s called bread because it probably has more sugar and fat than most cakes! It’s an unhealthy mess, with a scant two cups of grated zucchini to add beautiful flecks of green – just so I can pretend it is healthy. A bowl of mint chocolate chip ice cream is green too – and probably more healthy than zucchini bread.
But given the over abundance from the garden, what’s a person to do?
