Zucchini Bread {Recipe}

This summer we are enjoying the bounty of our (new) backyard garden.  With just 3 zucchini plants, we have so far harvested at least 30-40 zucchini, with more growing each day!  We’ve been enjoying a lot of it grilled, have shared some with neighbors, and I have also made several batches of delicious zucchini bread.  This classic quick bread is a wonderful way to use zucchini, and although I wouldn’t exactly call zucchini bread a health food, it’s a delicious treat we’ve been enjoying with breakfast.
