Cheddar & Zucchini Muffins

there seems to be an abundance of zucchini in my life as of late.
this makes me happy.
infinitely happy.
what i love most about zucchini is that it is so versatile, sweet or savoury, baked or fried, i haven't found a way that i didn't enjoy it.  

today i'm happy to announce that cheesy & savoury won. 
because, let's face it, cheese is always a good idea.  

tomorrow sweet will redeem itself, in the form of cake if i'm lucky.
