Whatcha Doin?

 

I used part of the zucchini Himself grew and baked some zucchini bread. I used the recipe given to me by my neighbor, Prissy. When we first moved here 35 years ago, She gave me zucchini from her garden and her recipe for zucchini bread.

We were nearly finished with the first loaf when I remembered I needed a picture for the blog post. Prissy's recipe makes two loaves. I'm really missing the old girl because I would have called her up, told her to put the kettle on, and then brought the second loaf over to have tea with her. And now missing her even more as I look at the date. On 12. August, she would have been 95 years old. Happy Birthday, Prissy! 💐

Whatcha doin?

  7. Making zucchini bread is the best, especially when you grow the zucchini yourself. I have my mom's chocolate zucchini bread recipe and always think of her when I make it. I can image you miss your neighbor and sharing some tea and zucchini bread. Thanks for that story CJ.

    1. I suppose making Prissy’s recipe keeps her alive

  8. What I am doing????
    I thought, YUM, seeing your pic :-)
    And... would you like to share the recipe? Since I lost my job I lost my fear of the oven and could bake this! - As long as it´s not a sweet bread, that is...

    Other I´ll emboss the complicated parcel Ingo made for my Niece´s Birthday :-)

    1. It is a sweet bread, but you could cut down on the amount of sugar and you can leave out the raisins, too.
