“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are October’s.”

-L.M. Montgomery

Hello, sweet friend…

Happy October!

This past week…

we took our annual visit to a local pumpkin patch…

There is nothing like spending time outdoors…

surrounded by beautiful Mother Nature…


for the perfect pumpkin

or two

the whole experience was quite relaxing…

and fun…

Btw…any chance you’ll be visiting a local pumpkin patch this year?



What better way to begin October than with a flavorful…well spiced…super moist pumpkin bread loaf…





3 1/3 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda

1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon nutmeg

3 cups sugar

1 cup vegetable oil

4 eggs
1 15 ounce canned pumpkin
2/3 cup water


Preheat oven to 350°.
Lightly grease two 5 x 9“ loaf pans. Mix the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg together; set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, place the sugar and vegetable oil; using an electric mixer, beat on high speed until light and well blended.

Add eggs to the mixing bowl, beating after each addition until well blended. Add pumpkin and water; beat until completely blended.

Add flour mixture in one cup at a time, scraping sides of bowl and beating on low speed after each addition only until blended.

Pour batter into prepared loaf pans; spread evenly.

Bake 65 to 75 minutes or until wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Remove from oven; place on wire racks. Cool for 10 minutes remove from pans and let loaves stand on wire racks until completely cool.
