Summer at the Diner

The Diner seems to be open for business once again.

This weekend’s Summer Special – zucchini bread and lemonade. What a combo and so delicious!

One day of shredding and squeezing, and two days of baking. There will be plenty of zucchini bread for the summer and into the fall, thanks to Patty’s garden across the street.

HH even took some slathered in butter zucchini bread fishin’ this morning, a great way to fortify the day.
