How much zucchini do you have?

Do you find bags of zucchini and summer squash in your car after church? Do you see baskets of it to be given away? These plants are usually bountiful and what do you do with all of it? One of our favorite recipes is Zucchini Bars.
2 eggs, 1 cup sugar, 1/4 cup oil, 1/2 cup applesauce, 3 heaping tbsp drained crushed pineapple, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 1/2 - 2 cups shredded zucchini, 1 cup all purpose flour, 3/4 cup coconut, 1 tsp soda, 1 tsp cinnamon, 3/4 cup chopped pecans
Beat eggs. Add sugar, pineapple, oil and applesuace-mix well. Add dry ingredients and mix well. Add zucchini, coconut and pecans-mix well. Bake in a greased 13 X 9 for 30 minutes. Cool and ice with cream cheese frosting.
1- 8 oz pkg cream cheese softened, 1/4 cup butter softened, 1 ib powdered sugar, 1 tsp vanilla
Beat together cheese and butter until creamy. Add sugar a little at a time to avoid wearing it. Add vanilla and beat until smooth.
These are amazing and pretty healthy. One of the BEST ways to eat your green veggies!
