Simple Things ~ Zucchini Bread

 I think I've shown you some of the wonderful veggies I've been getting from our church's community garden - well, the zucchini just keeps coming and that is fine with me.  I can cook it so many different ways and the bonus is that all four of my kids love zucchini.
 Here is a picture of the first loaf I ever made (back at the end of July).  It's so easy, I can't believe that I haven't been making this my whole life. So, let me share the recipe with you too!

Beat together:
3 eggs
1 t. vanilla
1 c. oil
2 c. sugar
Add 3 c. shredded zucchini.  Sift and add 1 t. salt, soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and 3 c. flour.  Mix well and pour into 2 greased and floured loaf pans.  Bake 1 hour at 350*.  Can add raisins, nuts, cranberries, chocolate chips, coconut, or pineapple if you'd like.  =)
I like it best right out of the oven with some butter on top.  If I've got a hot cup of coffee to go with it, well then I can't think of a better situation...  Enjoy and keep it Simple!
