Turkey Loaf Muffins & Zucchini Tots

Ok, before you completely discount this recipe, I have never had zucchini before and I love it! So if you know you don’t like zucchini, please move on! 

This dinner is great for a dinner with two, small, healthy, lo-cal, lo-carb, and fun to make. Especially for a sweet date!
