Zucchini Beet Muffins

Hello friends and happy Friday! I am SO thankful that it is the end of the week! It was a pretty long week with a lot of challenges in several different areas of life. I am ready for a little recovery this weekend and spending time with my hubby and some friends.

This week for Foodie Friday we focused on items fresh from the Farmer’s Market or garden. One item I LOVE to get fresh is organic zucchini! If you have been following my recipes for any length of time, you probably know how much I LOVE zucchini!!! It is so versatile and it is fun to experiment with! I also learned late last night that it was national zucchini day!

I am I am linking up with 2 of my fav ladies, my Foodie Friday gals, Farrah from Fairyburger and Annmarie from the Fit Foodie Mama for fresh ingredient recipes!
