Zucchini Bread

  The other day, Jason came home from work with two of these monsters. . .

They were bigger than I like to use for fried zucchini, since the seeds are fairly large, so instead, I cut them into big chunks and then . . .

 I grated, and grated, and grated some more. I grated 25 cups of zucchini. Most of it went in the freezer to be used in recipes throughout the rest of the year, but I used some of it to make zucchini bread.

Pour into a greased loaf pan. (I made a double batch, so used two loaf pans.)

Bake at 350 for one hour.
