The Great Spring Pumpkin Fest
It is April.
I absolutely should not have been baking pumpkin bread.
But, it was raining and/or snowing for most of the day yesterday and I had a can of pumpkin in the cabinet that I didn’t want to unpack in New York. So, I figured, if life was going to give me pumpkin weather, I might as well make pumpkin bread.
Conveniently, we had a few extra kids in our homeschool for the morning to help eat this novel spring snack.
They were excited when I turned the loaves onto the breadboard.
It took them about five minutes to reduce both loaves to this:
Within fifteen minutes, the evidence of October food in April was virtually obliterated.
I got one slice.
It was delicious and I would share more but I cannot post a pumpkin recipe at this time of year. Some things just should not be done.
