Zucchini Bread with Nutmeg

Welcome to Farmers Market Week! This is the week we celebrate all things found at the Farmers Market. There are over fifteen bloggers sharing over 50 recipes this week. From drinks and desserts to entrees and sides, there’s something for everyone this week.

Our farmers' markets are overloaded with squash and zucchini this time of year, usually... but the extra rain and extra heat have caused some shortages in the vegetable this summer.  We still had a few on our one bush, but we have been able to get what we want for suppers and snacks.  Making this zucchini bread was one way to use up the extra zucchini we had.  Now it really feels like a treat, since we are eating our fill-in stir fries and dips.

This is a typical quick bread recipe and we love it because we love the extra nutmeg in it.  For us, reducing the cinnamon and upping the nutmeg gives it a nice fallish flavor.  We also love how versatile the recipe is, adding or leaving out nuts, adding chocolate chips, and adding a glaze.  It is so delicious and you can make one of the loaves into muffins if you desire!
