zucchini Cheese bread

My ex-husband used to love zucchini. So, over the course of our marriage, I found myself in the kitchen makin’ everything from eggs and zucchini quiche, to fried zucchini, sautéed zucchini, and even curried zucchini soup. You name it! if it was made with zucchini, he ate it. But actually, his favorite was this savory zucchini cheese bread. Yes, siree! Give that man a big ol’ slice of this here bread, along with a cup of his Greek coffee, and he felt like a Zeus! But, don’t tell my ex-mother-in-law how much he liked it…’cause she sure wouldn’t like the idea of me bakin’ up somethin’ that he liked better than hers!
