Truly the Best Zucchini Bread

The Best Zucchini Bread
I got a great zucchini straight from the garden over the weekend. I thought about grilling it up on the grill with some BBQ chicken. Yummy, but then it rained, I mean poured, and my idea of grilling chicken and zucchini went down the drain. Back up plan, zucchini bread.
 I have only made zucchini bread one time before and it turned out alright. I mean it wasn't my favorite, but I was willing to give it another try. This time I did a little more research and found a recipe at Allrecipes that sounded good.
Mom's zucchini bread. It is moist and had a great flavor with the cinnamon and walnuts spread through out the bread. I brought a loaf to work and it was literally inhaled by my co-workers. I enjoyed it warmed with a good slathering of real butter. It truly is the best zucchini bread I ever devoured.
