Zucchini Bars with Spice Frosting

Zucchini here, zucchini there, zucchini everywhere!! Did you know August 8 is "Sneak Some Zucchini Onto Your Neighbor's Porch Day"? That always makes me giggle. Watch out....you might find a sack on your porch. ;-) We haven't been completely overrun yet...although I did find a hidden zucchini today that had managed to grow to just shy of the size of the Hindenburg. There are lots of delicious zucchini recipes out there....and they are SUPER easy to freeze.....so have at it zucchini growers!! Check out my friend Kim's yummy zucchini fritters...DELISH.
I was lucky enough to have an awesome zucchini shredding assistant today.
The child has found his calling. ;-)

We feasted on Zucchini Bars with Spice Frosting today. They were seriously good. Myself, not being a HUGE fan of frosting might leave the frosting off next time (but....it WAS really good) and just sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Enjoy!!
