Fresh Pineapple-Zucchini Bread

I was cleaning my freezer, now don't laugh. I seem to have so much stuff in there that I really don't know what I have. Things seem to just get "stuffed" in. Are you like that?

I found all of this pineapple that I had frozen this summer. You might remember that we had a hugh crop of pineapple this summer that I posted about. I froze lots of the pineapple and like to add them to smoothies.  I thought I would make something sweet using the pineapple.

I had some zucchini and figured why not add pineapple to the bread.  

I let the pineapple thaw slightly and then chopped it into small pieces. I think I had around a cup and a half. (I don't always measure.)

I just used my zucchini recipe and added the pineapple to it. For the frosting, I added pineapple juice to the powdered sugar. 

I liked the flavor of the fresh pineapple with the zucchini. It's always nice to tweak a recipe.
