Zucchini Bread with Pineapple

My neighbor brought over two very large zucchinis yesterday.  They were huge, like larger than my arm huge.  I don’t know what you do when you are given or grow a large zucchini – you know the kind that somehow managed to hide away under the plants until it is so large that you either […]
