Zucchini Carrot Bread

This is one of those recipes that I’ve had since high school. I make this at least once a year, usually around the time that the squash is overflowing from the gardens. When I freeze the zucchini I will shred it and add a couple of shredded carrots to it as well to make this recipe a little easier to prepare.

I normally double the recipe and make 2 loaves at a time because it is so good! I love it right out of the oven with a little bit of butter on it.
