But Amy Kortuem the Zucchini Slayer is not one to give up easily. This was quick bread, for crying out loud. What could possibly be so hard? I put out the call for a good recipe for a nebulous "next time."
Well, fate intervened. Last Friday, I got a Facebook message from a friend at work that there was another monster zucchini at the give-away table, just waiting for me. Fairly calling my name. I had taken the day off work, but drove up there to fetch this big beauty:
I think it's even bigger than the last one.
In the oven, using Grandma Freda's pans for luck.
Success. SUCCESS, people.

with the butcher knife she used to massacre that zucchini in her hand...)
I decided to try Mary Bergemann's recipe (via my Mom) first. I have enough shredded zucchini in the freezer to make two more batches...next time I'm trying my friend Valerie's chocolate zucchini bread recipe. Stay tuned.
