Best Ev-ah Pumpkin Bread!

Here’s an easy recipe for delicious pumpkin bread.  Every Thanksgiving I make it early in the morning.  Love to smell it baking as it fills our home with the aroma of happiness, gratitude and love. I’ve made it for years–so moist and yummy and it freezes well.  As a kid, I remember my mom making countless loaves, piling them up on a sled and sending us out into the cold to deliver them to neighbors at Christmas time.  Perfect for both Holidays–Thanksgiving and Christmas. Enjoy!

Cheers!!  Here’s to all the things for which you’re grateful.  May your Thanksgiving be filled with magical moments to savor…warmth in your belly and in your heart.  Where ever you are, what ever you are doing this holiday, I wish you all the beauty of the season.
