As this was baking in the oven my grandma came over and brought me some pumpkin bars. The only similarity these two share are the pumpkin. Grandma’s bars were light and airy, this bread is dense and hearty! 



I hope everyone’s week is going great! I think we’ve had our last nice day. It was in the 50′s today, but we’re supposed to get snow on Friday!

What’s your favorite pumpkin recipe?

Is the weather cold yet where you live?

    This look so good! I have bananas and pumpkin that need using up, so I think I’m going to have to make this!
    It’s spring where I live, so unfortunately the cold weather is disappearing (I really like the cold!), but summer has its upsides! (:
