April 25: National Zucchini Bread Day

Seriously, what is up with all these food observance days that seem out of place?  I consider zucchini a summer vegetable, and in August I expect the stores to be overflowing with zucchini.  If you grow zucchini in your garden, come end of summer you'll have a hard time keeping up with all the zucchini your plants are throwing at you.  You can't even give it away at this point because everyone is giving it away.  Right now, though, in the end of April, zucchini gets a small little section at the grocery store and is crazy expensive.

This is why you make zucchini bread.  Use up all that extra zucchini.  My only complain about zucchini bread has been the prep- shredding zucchini can be very time consuming.  This year, though, I have a food processor so hopefully that makes things a little easier.

Looking for zucchini bread recipe?  Try this highly rated one from All Recipes.  Or maybe this one from Smitten Kitchen.  Or you can always experiment and try substituting zucchini in various fruit and vegetable recipes.   

Because experimenting with recipes is always fun, even if it's not always successful.
