Garden Food: Refrigerator Pickles and Zucchini Muffins

Inspired by Little Bit Funky and acquiring some fabulous cucumbers from my sistah, Melissa...I decided to make some Refrigerator Pickles! 

Click on over to Little Bit Funky for the ingredients and directions!
And don't miss out because these things are amazing!
I was also gifted with 8 gigantic zucchini...
so I decided some chocolatey, cinnamony muffins were in order.
1.5 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1.5 cups grated zucchini
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup canola oil
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 to 1 cup mini chocolate chips
cinnamon and sugar for topping

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  In a large bowl whisk flour, sugars, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

In a medium bowl combine zucchini, eggs, vanilla, chocolate chips and oil.  Stir well.  Then gently stir in flour mixture.

Fill lined muffin tins about 3/4 fill and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.

Bake for 30 minutes or until golden.
