I just love the change of season (unless that change is into winter!) I love how after wanting to hibernate for months, all of the sudden things get warm and green in the spring. I love all of the fresh fruits and veggies.
But by the time mid-September comes around there is always a part of me that is ready to move on. By then the novelty of shorts has left and the feeling of taking a steam bath every time you open the door has worn on your last nerve.
Those tomatoes that we were anxiously awaiting in the first weeks of July have turned into more of a chore than a treasure. That’s when it happens.
Mother Nature sees our frustration and gives us those first few cooler day. A sign that fall is coming and it is time to break out the soup pots, casserole dishes and of course the PUMPKIN! Woohoo!
For as long as I can remember, my mom made pumpkin bread with chocolate chips. It has always been a favorite in our family. It is like a taste of childhood and a harbinger of fall all in one bite.
Of course it doesn’t have to be fall in order to enjoy a slice. A nice slice would be good any time of year. Luckily this recipe makes 2 loaves. With a family as big as ours, we never had an issue eating both loaves in no time at all.
But not every family has 8 hungry mouths hanging around. So you can keep one and give the other away. You can also freeze a loaf for eating later if you’d rather.
