This zucchini was on my porch this morning, a gift from my neighbor. Since I didn't plant any vegetables myself this year, I've have welcomed the gifts of fresh produce that have come my way. I was struck by the fact that this zucchini weighs as much as my first born did. And what do you do with a zucchini this size?
I found this recipe for Whole Wheat Zucchini bars and decided to test them out. The recipe calls for 2 cups of shredded zucchini, however, you can see I still have a majority of the zucchini remaining. The frosting is a nice combination of a little melted butter, powdered sugar, and cinnamon. I figure anything with frosting will disappear in my house. By it's actually very good, moist, and more cake like than I expected with the "bar" name.
Tune in for Part Two of what to do with a six pound zucchini...later today or tomorrow.
