Pumpkin Bread

Now that fall is in the air, well maybe where you live, there is nothing like a nice little treat ~ pumpkin bread with a scoop or two of ice cream on the side!







Do you know Cielo at http://houseinroses.blogspot.com/ ? Well, this lovely lady is really something special. Not only is she beautiful, but she grows lovely roses, decorates her home beautifully and is just the most magically charming gal you can imagine! She shared the recipe for her pumpkin bread on her blog and it sounded so yummy...I had to make it. Go on over and get the recipe!! Run don't walk!! I cut the recipe in half and instead of baking it in a loaf pan, I made 8 little indiviual loaves! We devoured almost all of it last night, but I saved the last one for Cielo to see!! Trust me this is so YUMMY!!



Oh, I'm so blessed! I thank God for canned pumpkin, I thank Him for eggs, I thank Him for oil, I thank Him for flour, I thank Him for electricity so I can bake and I thank Him for my sense of taste so I could enjoy every delicious morsel of this pumpkin bread. Oh, I almost forgot...I thank God for Cielo and her recipe!!















Here's a little Note Song for you ~



Pumpkin Song (sung to the tune "I'm A Little Teapot")




I'm a little pumpkin

Orange and round.

Here is my stem,

There is the ground.

When I get all cut up,

Don't you shout!

Just open me up

And scoop me out!


~ sung by pumpkin eaters everywhere ;)

  18. Oh Shelia, that looks fabulous! I LOVE pumpkin bread. And pumpkin pie, and pumpkin tea cakes, and pumpkin scones (mmmmmm, pumpkin scones) and pumpkin scented candles. Oh my!!! I have 20 more pounds to lose, so I'm going to have to enjoy Cielo's wonderful recipe vicariously through your picture and her post. But, I'm keeping that recipe and when I reach my goal weight I'm using it as my congratulatory treat. I keep canned pumpkin in my pantry year-round.
