~to market to market~

I came home today to find this sign at my neighbors house...
HUGE BEAUTIFUL ZUCCHINI'S!
Over 5 pounds a piece!
(I know because my kids weighed them!)
I think with the weather a little cooler, we will stay home tomorrow and do one of our favorite things~bake!
We are going to make a ton of zucchini bread and freeze it for the fall, yum!

Here are a couple other recipes I would like to try out!
Squash casserole with bacon
Chocolate Zucchini Muffins
Zucchini Parmesan
and
Zucchini Brownies

I can't wait 'til my kids are old enough to be able to help me bake AND be productive about it! (right now we all just end up a mess with questionable food!)

I grate them up small and add them to my chocolate chip cookies! My little one is not a good veggie eater...

I love zucchini bread. I have a bus load of squash and last night I made zucchini parmesan and it was awesome.

Love zucchini bread. My grandmother made it all the time. My aunt makes zucchini chocolate cake and my grandma made the best zucchini relish I have ever had. Best on hotdogs. Enjoy the day.

I just made 8 loaves last week with one gigantor zucchini. Yummy!

We also highly recommend mexican lasagna with zucchini. It's totally delcious and a great veggie meal - even my husband loved it and he's not a big zucchini fan.

Just how big were those zucchinis?! I try to harvest them before they get too big and seedy... but I have to admit there is nothing like watching that one "Big Boy" grow!
