It cooled down for about one minute in my area. Enough time to get me excited for fall. I put a long sleeve shirt with jeans and boots on. I baked delicious Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread. And then realized it had risen to 100 degrees outside and I put my flip flops back on. As much as I love summer, bring on fall!
My kids got all excited that we were making this pumpkin bread. Jules even exclaimed “It’s that time of year already? YES!!” Apparently I’ve passed down the love of all things pumpkin from my mom. Grammy should be proud.
My kids love quick breads. Add chocolate chips to any bread and they are in heaven. Same with Josh. He wasn’t a banana bread fan until I added chocolate chips and now he’s sold. They are easy to please. But this recipe is really good.
