Jordan was away overnight last week attending a conference for work. While he was preparing to leave, I began organizing and clearing out our closets (I love doing this after a season change). It looked like a tornado had whipped through our house, but I promised him I would have everything in order when he came back.
The problem was I had just picked up the last two discs of Homeland season two from the library. I managed to finish the closet makeover, straighten up the house, finish the episodes (intense!), and bake pumpkin bread. It was quite the epic day off :-)
And speaking of days off, those are usually my baking days.
I had been searching for a plain pumpkin bread recipe for a couple of weeks but wasn't impressed with the results. Wasting good Trader Joe's pumpkin puree on a dud just wasn't going to happen. I had to find something that sounded promising. I landed on this recipe from Bridget (edited it a little to what I had on hand) and wasn't let down.
