Zucchini bread success

Success! I ended up making the equivalent of 6 loaves of zucchini bread this weekend. Four loaves were baked on Saturday with my dear friend EC acting as sous chef and then I made two more loaves on Sunday night.

Sunday nights loaves were a real dousy too. I decided to see if I could make a low-fat, low-sugar version of the bread. I used only 3/4 of the sugar called for in the recipe, replaced all the oil with apple sauce, and used 4 egg whites instead of the required 3 eggs. The crazy thing is that I think the loaves I made on Sunday night were infinitely better than the ones I made on Saturday night...and Saturday's batch was delicious to begin with.

So, I now only have about 2 lbs of yellow squash to eat through. Keep those fingers crossed that I don't get any more squash.

In the mean time I have about 2 lbs of cucumbers, 2 lbs of tomatoes, 5 lbs of potatoes, 1 lb of baby carrots, and 3 lbs of onions to eat through. Ack!

Hi Bo,
I know- long time no write. But I decided to re-visit your blog today. Don't know why, but I can tell you that I was getting hungry reading about all the cooking you're doing! Is it weird that I hear your voice in my head when I'm reading your blog? That doesn't really happen when I read other blogs, but I can't explain it. Your written word can only be said by you- does that make sense? Anyway, we're missing you out here in SF. You take care of our Miss Ellen- we miss her too!

Hi you! Good to see you trolling these murky water. You've been on my mind recently, as have the rest of the SF crew. You're not the first to comment about my writing. I don't know what it is either. I chalk it up to my unique interpretation of grammar (or lack there of) and my overall kookiness. Anyway, I miss you tons! We've got Jinn and Ellen to jump, if I can only get a few more of you out here! ;-)
