Baking Thankfulness

Submitted by kim on Mon, 11/01/2010 - 12:51 in Recipes


I wanted to get two additional blog posts up on the theme of thankfulness, but the weekend was just too busy to get them written.  Saturday morning started quiet and I decided to bake something pumpkin-ish to get into the thankfulness spirit.  By the way, have you tried the Pumpkin Spice Latte at Starbucks - oh my, yummy!

I have to confess that the recipe I am going to share is probably just as unhealthy as Strabucks fall in a cup.  It is an old fashioned pumpkin bread recipe that I used for muffins. Loaded with white sugar, white flour and oil, it is not something to make for a dieting friend.  It is my favorite due to its moistness.  My recipe card is about twenty years old, written in Linda's beautiful cursive handwriting.  Linda and I went to church together at the time and she was a newborn nurse at the hospital where I delivered my first child.  I was so thankful she was on duty when I gave birth. Into her caring hands, I entrusted my little one.   Linda wrote Psalm 118:24 on the back of her recipe: "This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it!"  Great verse for the first day of our month of thankfulness.
