Mom's Zucchini Loaf
Growing up, I was blessed with a grandmother and mother who always grew fresh vegetables. Every spring, we would plant seeds and watch how quickly the plants grew over the months. It was amazing how quickly they produced produce for us to eat. By the month of June, we had zucchini, and lots of it. This is another family recipe, so enjoy!!
