zucchine bread

You can bet when your grandmother got up early in the morning
 and put her apron on it meant business...
This is Mrs. Derby...people still talk about the wonderful pies she made
at the Derby Cafe in Chamberlain, SD..
That's quite a legacy.
As a girl we did our baking on Saturdays...
after our housecleaning was done.
It was quite a commotion with three of us,
my sister Rhonda, mother and myself,
all working around each other in the kitchen.
"No talking! I'm counting teaspoons here!"
So go get your apron on....
because I'm sharing  Lila's Zucchine Bread today
I know, mom should have checked that spelling...
but really...I have to use my spell-check every time I type it in.
I love her hand-written recipes.
