Zucchini Bread

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Officially summer is gone, done, over. The school year has begun and life is returning to a comfortable daily schedule. Many parental sighs of relief can be heard all over town. I remember those days, but I wonder, where did summer go, and how did it pass me by?
It seems like just yesterday summer had begun. And now it is over. I still have a full list of summer activities to complete. I did not grill, did not go to the beach or even cook much these past couple of months. Whew, it's over, though, huh?

I do have a couple of zucchini on the dining room table. Not from my garden, but they are homegrown, so let's get started. When folks are kind enough to share their bounty with me, I always appreciate it!

  3. I love zucchini bread but Don doesn't so if I make it ...I eat it.....lol...Your loaves look beautiful.

  4. I feel the same way - where did it go!? We have a last blast if summer today, it'll be in the 90's with the humidity. I'm looking forward to fall weather, it's been a hot summer, but I can't really complain, I mean isn't it supposed to be? LOL! Could use a slice of your lovely zucchini bread to go with my coffee right now. Have a great day Melynda!

  5. If summer ending means getting to have this bread then I am all for it! It looks divine and so moist. Perfect for all times of the season but more specifically a great way to ring in the new fall!

  6. I know, right? Before we know it, the year will be over.

    I can smell this bread baking!

    Thanks for sharing it with Garden Variety Wednesday.

  7. I was just wondering where summer went yesterday. It flew by and I didn't do half of the things I wanted to. Thank goodness for zucchini season to get a through this period between summer and fall. Thank you for sharing your recipe and sentiments with the Gallery of Favorites.

  9. I must still be in denial. We had so little summer weather. And my summer and the last one was so overly busy and not in a good way. I'm hoping for a warm September. But I suppose I'll take what I get. Oh well!

  10. I love summer with its long days and bright colors, and never want it to go. I don't know why I have never made or even eaten zucchini bread. Your recipe inspires me to change that.

  11. We had so little summer weather that I feel a bit like summer passed us by here in England too. Your zucchini bread looks delicious. I love that sort of thing - especially with a cup of tea on a cold and rainy autumn day! Thank you for sharing this post with the Gallery of Favorites.
