Fall Fare

Good morning!
I am going to have to do some running this morning so I am going to do a quick little post. Keith brought me back a fantastic basket made by the sister of the couple he stayed with while in MN.
I checked out her web page yesterday and saw some great baskets.
With Christmas coming up I thought maybe ya'll might want to check them out.
Joanna's Collections

Next, when it gets cool I love to bake.
I live in Louisiana, home of plantation homes and good food.
My kindergarten teachers family (plantation owners) passed down this recipe for Pumpkin bread.
Her name was Mrs Strole

Mrs. Strole's Pumpkin Bread

2c. sugar
1t. salt
1t. soda
3t. cinnamon
1/2 to 1c. chopped pecans
2c. pumpkin(cooked and mashed)
1 1/4c. veg oil
4 eggs, beaten

Sift dry ingredients. Make a well and add liquids. Pour into 2 greased and sugared loaf pans.
Fill 1/2 full. Bake at 350 for one hour.
Freezes well!
I love this to make in small loaves to give to teachers and friends at Christmas.

I love baskets, and Joanna's are gorgeous! I have a birthday coming up... ;o)

Pumpkin bread. MMM. I wonder if this recipe would adapt well to Splenda instead of sugar?

Ohh...I love that basket. I saw a woman at Bible Study this week who had a beautiful basket tote for her Bible study things. I checked the site you recommended and they had similar leather handled tote basket. I might have to forward the link to Thomas:)
