Zucchini bread.

What do you do when you realize that you bought two zucchinis and haven't any plans to cook them any time soon? You search your favorite websites/blogs for a zucchini bread recipe.

I went with the recipe on Smitten Kitchen and opted to make the batter into muffins because I do not currently have a non-stick bread pan and my glass bread pans have let me down recently.

 The recipe was easy to follow and I liked the option of adding chocolate chips. I'm of the mind that chocolate makes everything better (although in this instance, my husband and I disagree).

I grated the two zucchini that were hiding out in my fridge. I love my food processor. It makes everything easy and somehow, more fun. 
 Our seasoning, cinnamon, nutmeg,salt, baking powder and soda.
 I added the flour pecans and bittersweet chocolate chips.
 Now, the wet ingredients join the party, vanilla, oil, eggs, sugar and the grated zucchini.
 I used Valentine's Day* muffin liners to be festive. Also, there seems to be a never ending supply of them. I wish you could just buy 24 liners and not have so many left over.
 Mmmmm! My kitchen smells delicious. I love the specks of the spices you can see in the muffin.
Voila! Just look at that melty chocolate and the bits of zucchini! 
 *When I was a kid, I thought the holiday was called Valentime's Day, because it happened once a year and it was time for it in February. I see that my misspelling lead me to flawed logic yet I still think it every year.
