Vanilla Date Zucchini Bread

It’s finally SPRING weather round’ these here parts!

I’ve waited all year for this.

Us Texan’s aren’t used to “cold” weather temps, sooooooo I naturally prefer the hotter months.

Not that I have anything against cold weather, it’s just I’d rather wear flip-flops, ya feel me?

Let’s talk zucchini bread.
