Kick start your day with a good breakfast

Zucchini Bread

on August 19, 2013

Hello, people who complain, “Oh, I have bushels of zucchini! I’ll have to drop a basket or two off at each neighbor’s for weeks!” Meet Beth Goehring who’d love nothing more than to wrestle with this dilemma every summer. I adore zucchini in just about anything, but I have to rely on my local farmer’s market for the stuff.

My talented husband grows exquisite perennials, but he will not plant edibles.

Chuck's hollyhocks were especially pretty this year.

Just like zucchini plants, zucchini bread is the gift that keeps on giving. This loaf will provide breakfast…and lunch…and more for days–the perfect thing to bake Sunday morning for the week ahead. Couldn’t it have come straight off the menu of a tie-dyed 1960s vegetarian co-op? No wonder the hippies loved it–inexpensive, substantial, filling, earthy.

Moosewood, eat your heart out!

Speaking of hippies, have you read Lauren Groff’s Arcadia? It’s just about perfect. She has bushels of talent she could easily leave on other writers’ doorsteps without tapping out her gifts.
