Hey Gerri. Sorry to hear about your dad. Zucchini Bread this time of the year is solely PERFECT! I've never been a fan of pumpkin, so this is a great substitute. My mom doesn't bake much since she was diagnosed with MS, but it was such a real treat when she made this. I hope that if you make this, your mom will think of it as a real treat as well.

XOXO
