Eat your veggies ...

even if you have to turn them into a carb and add chocolate. :)

My neighbors were generous enough to give my husband and I some zucchini from their garden. I have never really ate zucchini before but I know I have made some zucchini bread. And since I love all things carbs I figured I might as well make it again. I made one loaf per the recipe and one loaf with milk chocolate chips in it. And both kinds were super yummy.
