Autumn...it finally feels like fall here...sigh...for atmosphere, fall is my favorite time of year. Cool air, sweaters & boots, the leaves, apple cider, cozy meals...it just envelopes you.
We went to our first fall festival last weekend and I wore a sweater with a big plaid scarf yesterday. Yep, it's here!
I made a fall bucket list this year. It includes pumpkin picking, making a leaf pile, taking a walk in the woods, seeing a few creepy movies (Miss Peregrines, Girl on the Train), lighting fall candles and canning jelly.
This afternoon Hope and I are baking pumpkin bread. Lots of little loaves this time so that we can share it with friends and neighbors. With plenty of extra to put in our freezer, of course. If you'd like to have your own slice of pumpkin bread heaven, here is the recipe. When I wrote the original recipe, I forgot to mention chocolate chips. You must add chocolate chips if you want to reach true pumpkin bread nirvana!
