Make This!

If you've got a lot of zucchini laying your house that you don't know what to do with, make this! It is heavenly and the best part is you get two loaves. One to eat and one to freeze for later. Even the kids gobbled it up and I can't seem to stop snitching bites. Yum. Oh, and did I mention how wonderful it smells when it is baking? Oh my! This is too good not to share.

Amazing Zucchini Bread

1 cup vegetable oil

1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
3/4 tsp nutmeg

9. Bake for 60 minutes, till toothpick comes out clean
10. Let cool in pans 10 minutes
