It's good to 'fall' again...

Fall has arrived out here, and I am very excited to see the vibrant colors again. Sean and I are going to take a trip up to Maine this weekend and check out the foliage, eat at some good places, visit an apple know, the fall stuff.

I am so excited. I hope to capture some good fall colors on camera. Cross your fingers.

Along with the fall colors goes the great fall food. Pumpkin has captured me this week. AND...have you ever made pumpkin bread with chocolate chips? My friend brought over some excellent muffins this week that had chocolate chips in them - YUM!!! Why didn't I think of that with the 6 loaves I had already made? (Don't worry, I haven't eaten them all - it is part of the nesting & prep for the Cape Cod shower next weekend!)

Here is the recipe that I use if you are craving pumpkin...

Pumpkin Bread
3 1/3 Cup Flour
