I didn't look up the carbs on it but I know that it is allowed on a diabetic diet.  Maybe  not in the quantities he would like but at least he can eat with everyone else and not worry. I made this pie to serve with roast chicken and all the trimmings.  Then I called my farmer son in law and our daughter to come eat with us.  They had been to the sale barn and came back hungry.  A win for us all.  We

Zucchini recipe

 This recipe is one from my ex sister in law.  My mama always said if you can't say anything nice don't say anything at all.  She could make good zucchini bread and I have 3 nieces.  Nuff said. 2 c. grated unpeeled zucchini 1 c. oil 2 c. sugar 3 beaten eggs 1 t. vanilla 3 c. flour 1 t. baking soda 1 t. salt 1/2 t. baking powder  1 t. cinnamon 1 c. nuts Mix sugar,eggs, oil, and vanilla.  Mix together with the dry ingredients that have been mixed together.  Put into 2 greased and floured bread pans and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. If you have one of the little pans like I used, half the recipe fills those eight spots.   I baked that pan for 25 minutes at 350 degrees. And if you were smart enough to grate and freeze zucchini last summer you have it made.  I had to dig through 3 freezers til I found my one remaining package and it was marked 2018.  I didn't freeze any grated zucchini last summer.  Mine is all in chunks for soup now.
