PUMPKIN BREAD

Things I love about October:

  • Target’s Halloween section
  • G-rated Halloween movies (I stopped watching scary movies after I watched The Ring)
  • Most importantly…all things pumpkin.pumpkin bread
Around this time of year my husband starts asking, “Where’s the pumpkin bread?” So then I have to go digging for my mother-in-law’s famous pumpkin bread recipe which I can never find and have to call my mother-in-law for. I still don’t think my bread will ever be as good as when Sheri makes it but here’s to trying.
