The Monday Recipe Blog

Hello - I love September.  Still hot, but at least there's a promise of cooler weather to come....It's Monday, so it's time for another Lois Elaine recipe!

This blog features Lois Elaine Mueller's recipes every Monday. Lois' heyday was in the 1950's and 1960's, and her children swear she was the best cook that ever lived. Many baby boomers will remember these mouth-watering recipes, and these dishes are just as tasty today as they were in the sixties.

If your garden has survived this sweltering summer, it is probably only producing squash by now.  If you planted zucchini, you more than likely have it running out your ears.  A favorite way to get more healthy squash into a family's diet is to put it into delicious bread, which is actually more like delicious cake.  Lois Elaine was no different in the 1960's, and she used this recipe for Zucchini Bread.....

Lois Elaine's Zucchini Bread:

Makes 3 loaves....

3 eggs
1 c. oil (vegetable, canola, etc)
1 t. salt
1 t. baking soda
