Big Zucchinis = YUMMY Bread

I showed you how well my garden was doing and it was a bit of a bummer it was starting to peak right as we were leaving on vacation. But luckily, my ILs were happy to stop by and water and check on it a few times. Sadly, the heat made one of my pumpkins wither, but we have one that is doing well and is on track to be a splendid Halloween pumpkin. I'm hoping for at least one more - for obvious reasons!

But when we walked in the door on Sunday the first thing we noticed were 3 HUGE and 1 nice sized zucchini on our counter that SIL had brought in. GOOD HEAVENS! And when they get that big sometimes they aren't great for eating as a veggie - so what better thing to do but to make ZUCCHINI BREAD!

Caroline assisted me and we made two large loaves - one for us and one to share with Cathy and her family. She was such a big helper and I'm hoping that means she'll actually eat it and maybe get some veggies into her?

FUnny that you are looking for ways to get your kids to eat their veggies - we wen to a play date at our neighbors house Mondya and the Mom had made zucchini bread for the girls to have as a snack and Kenzie loved it. SO I got the recipe and I'll be maiking it this weekend! All she eats these days is corn - on the cob only!
