Last night was a rarity. We had nothing going on and we ate, unrushed, at the dinner table. It was so refreshing. I had gone to the store and bought some stunning zucchini, only to come home and realize I had 4 in my fridge that were almost going bad. It was going to be a cooking, baking kinda night.
This bread took minutes to throw together, and I halved the recipe, because I had only 1 cup extra shredded zucchini from dinner. But, now I wish I had done the full, so I could share, and eat more. It-is-good!! In one morning snack, half the loaf has disappeared, and I imagine the rest will be gone by this evening. Yeah, we are like the black hole of food around here. Kinda like a dream I had. . . "Make it and they will eat....". Oh wait, that's not a dream, but reality. The lines get blurred so much, I find it hard to decipher reality and fiction.
Speaking of fiction... Hunger Games movie release... yeah, I am a loser and won't get to go see it for a few days, up to a week!! But I am okay with that. I mean, I lived it, so do I really need to see it?
Okay, so maybe I only feel like I lived it, but if I believed in reincarnation, or in a future world that twisted, then I would soooo be the mockingjay! I mean, wouldn't you be?
Anyway, to the Hunger Games... may the zucchini bread be ever in your favor.
