As requested...

Here is my mom's pumpkin bread recipe, which I believe she told me she got out of the newspaper years ago. The most lovely thing about this recipe is you mix it all in one bowl, which if you don't have someone to clean the kitchen when you're done baking, you understand how great that is.

Pumpkin Bread

3 cups sugar
1 cup cooking oil
4 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 cup chopped walnuts
3 1/2 cups flour
2 cups canned pumpkin
2/3 cup water

Cream together sugar, oil, and eggs. Add salt, nutmeg, cinnamon, soda, walnuts, flour, pumpkin, and water. Mix well. Pour batter into 4 greased loaf pans (7 x 3 inch). (You can also use this batter to make muffins - just adjust your cooking time). Bake in oven preheated to 350 degrees for about 1 hour, until toothpick stuck in center comes out clean.

Also by request, the game I'm addicted to is a little game by Popcap called Zuma. You can play it online here, but consider yourself warned!

I'm the Mom of two. They drive me crazy. I love them dearly. I want one more. I'm not insane, yet. My hubby says I'm a snob with an inferiority complex. There is more to me than being a mother. I just don't remember any of it.
