Pumpkin Bread

This Pumpkin Bread is the best...the best ever. It is a family recipe from my Mom's side of the family. Mom always makes it in the Fall and it's a tradition to have it with our Thanksgiving meal. I love this pumpkin bread any time of day. My favorite thing is to make a pumpkin bread and peanut butter sandwich for lunch...I so look forward to these lunches! It will also make your house smell delicious while baking...mmmmm...
