Alfresco Friday – Zucchini and Bacon Loaves

Zucchini Slice

I am enjoying Alfresco Friday, it is giving me the chance to prepare some of the great picnic foods I pour over in magazines.  I love getting dinner cooked and packing it up in a hamper. We then head off to the beach or park with the family. There is no more relaxing way to start the weekend.

This Alfresco Friday is the calm before the storm.  It is Christmas tomorrow! I have chosen these little zucchini loaves because I think that a nice light meal with a glass of champagne on the beach would make an ideal Christmas Eve dinner.

It is a very easy dish to make, so if you have to bring a plate to a friends place this would be a delicious and quick option. It is great served either hot or cold and freezes well.
