Yum!!! I didn't get any zucchini into my garden this year, but this may be worth buying some for.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! How did you know that I was going to hunting for a chocolate zuke recipe tomorrow. Now, I don't have to. If you could see me right now I am doing a happy dance! Well, not really! I am swinging contentedly on the porch swing, but I am doing a happy dance in my mind :o)!
