Do you ever associate food with memories?
In case I’m not the only weirdo who loves zucchini chocolate chunk bread, let me share with you how we met.
Once upon a time…
In a land far, far away…
There lived a very tired preggo wife.
She was hurriedly showering and preparing for her family’s holiday outing when horror of horrors the doorbell rang!
She was barely out of the shower and couldn’t possibly scurry to open the door.
Have you ever seen a pregnant woman scurry?
I didn’t think so.
As soon as she was properly dressed, she opened the front door to find a small package with her name on it.
Inside some carefully wrapped aluminum foil was some delicious zucchini chocolate chunk bread.
And another carefully wrapped package contained two small loaves of perfect spiced pumpkin bread.
The homemade scents of freshly baked yumminess created a warmness in the tired, baby-carrying body that belonged to the still, super-young mom.
And that, dear zucchini chocolate chunk bread fans, began my love for homemade baked goods.
