My First Zucchini Bread

Please visit and like my new facebook page Georgia Home Garden.

The zucchini has been really producing and I have been looking for recipes to come up with different ways to eat it. I pretty much only stir fry it and that is great, but I want to expand my culinary skills in the process. So I found a zucchini bread recipe at that got excellent reviews. I made it last night and for my first time ever trying something like this, it was awesome. The only modification I made to the recipe was adding 3/4 cup of chocolate chips for my daughter.  She still didn't like it, but it was so good I ate some again for breakfast this morning.

Tonight I am smoking a chicken, and I found a recipe for zucchini fries. Hopefully those will come out as good as this did. Time to get to work in the yard.
