grilled Zucchini

Zucchini bread doesn't sound all that good but it is. Zucchini bread is moist and the nuts make a nice flavor. You don't have to use nuts but I don't think the bread is that good without them. You can also make muffins from this recipe.

What to do with all that Zucchini? Squash is the one food that is easy to grow. You can plant one plant and feed your entire neighborhood and workplace.  If you have planted squash this year, you probably have an excess to say the least. Neighbors are probably turning you away when you visit with your basket. If you don't like to waste food, but are tired of your Zucchini then consider baking bread and freezing it. Squash doesn't freeze well on its own. Or give it to your neighbors or work friends as gifts.
