Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread

August means zucchini days, doesn't it?  My in-law's usually have and abundance of zucchini  (as I'm sure many of you have), but this year they've had a mother deer and her twin babies (darling, but a bit of a nuisance) visiting the garden daily.  They seem to love the blossoms, so this year each zucchini we do snag is kind of precious!

I got this recipe from my mother-in-law several years ago.  I didn't get around to posting it last year, and I wanted to make sure to get it done this year.  The recipe takes about 3 cups of zucchini, so for those of you who have zucchini coming out of your ears, it's the perfect way to use up a lot of it!

I always add the chocolate chips (semi sweet), but that's about it as far as optional ingredients go.  I do remember my mother-in-law making it with all the optional ingredients, and it is fantastic!

I also have to say I loved getting out the cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves for this bread.  Fall ingredients are beginning to make more of an appearance these days at our house.  I LOVE them, and how they smell when baking!!

We also have a family favorite pumpkin bread that is very similar to this zucchini one.
