As I made this recipe again tonight, I realized that I hadn’t shared it with you. Even though Thanksgiving and pumpkins are long gone, that’s no excuse not to make it. Canned pumpkin is still readily available, and in this season of giving and gifting, this is the perfect recipe to make. It makes two loaves: one for you, one to wrap up for a neighbor.
I’m usually not a big fan of sweet bread recipes, but this one is the surest way to make anyone a convert. Toast up a slice in the morning and spread on the thinnest layer of butter … mmm, delish. Nick likes to take a warm slice with him on the way to the bus stop in the morning, so a loaf doesn’t last long.

Snack time at Costco. Babybel cheese, Gouda cheese and Stacy’s Naked Pita Chips. I just read something recently about all the different things that you can taste at Costco, and for some of the warehouses that had more to-try booths, the calorie count, if you tried everything, was like 1800 – ouch!
After dinner art time with Jamie.
Madeline’s class is working on the letter I this week, so I made a batch of cupcakes with buttercream frosting (her color choice) featuring a few “I” words.
