Day 8 – zucchini bread

My garden has been in a sad state this summer. These pathetic zucchini are probably the only ones I will get from it. Who’s ever heard of only getting two small zucchini from a garden? My mom always jokes about having to make sure your doors are locked and windows closed during the summer because otherwise you will get to your car/home and find all your neighbors have kindly left you with more zucchini than a family could possibly use. Usually the average garden overflows with the plant, but this year my plants struggled.

From the garden to the plate, I had to make something special with these two. Matt loves zucchini bread so that is what I made. Even I had a slice, which I wouldn’t normally do because, well, hello, two and a quarter cups of SUGAR. For the last year I’ve been avoiding sweets as much as possible, but yeah, that slice was deeeeee-licious.

It looks like we will have more luck with the tomatoes, so hopefully we’ll be enjoying fresh salsa later this month.

  1. The tomatoes you gave me seem to be doing pretty good, but for all the flowers on the zucchini, I haven’t gotten a single one. I think somethings been eating them before they can grow any bigger than a pinkie.
