Pumpkin Bread

It that time of the year!!  Time for pumpkin bread!!  Yesterday, I cooked down  one of my many pumpkins.  I lucked into finding them on sale for a buck each!  And with today’s economy…… that was a bargain!

I used to boil the pumpkins down.  Not anymore.  A friend explained that baking the pumpkins were so much easier.  And that is soooo true!  Now I just cut off the stem part, cut it in two, and clean it out.  I bake them on a cookie sheet (cut side down) for an hour at 375 degrees.

Once they are cooled down I can peel off the skin and mash the meat of the pumpkin…… it will look like this:

Now it is time to make the good old pumpkin bread.  I have mine in the oven right now.  Oh…. the house smells heavenly!!

I found this recipe in my “Taste of Tanako” cookbook.  Tanako is a local church camp.  It is very yummy and easy to make.

On a side note….. ever seen a blue egg?  I purchase my eggs from our Humane Society.  Anyway, they now have some Araucanas chickens and are selling blue eggs.  They are almost too pretty to eat!

Anyway, I hope you find the time to make some yummy pumpkin bread.  My mouth is watering right now smelling them bake!  I’ve got 30 more minutes until they are done!!
