You know the giant zucchini we picked last week? It was perfect for making zucchini bread. After grating, it yielded about 10 cups of zucchini. I wanted it to be quick so I used a recipe from my Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook, nothing super special. I pinned a Perfect Zucchini Bread recipe on Pinterest but it was too sweet for me. The boys had fun “mixin-mixin”, as Søren would say, and later on enjoying the fruits of their labor. I’m glad they are not afraid of the kitchen. Most days Aiden makes lunch for both of them. Maybe next time we will try these Zucchini Fritters.

Do you cook with your kids? If you don’t have kids, did you cook with your parents growing up?
