With Thanksgiving this week everyone is preparing for their holiday menu. Reveille camper, Robyn Hart sent us this pumpkin bread recipe that sounds delicious!  We love anything pumpkin flavored this time of year and we're always looking for the perfect way to use this seasonal flavor in our everyday cooking! 

"I teach Family and Consumer Science at Wayne Hills High School in Wayne. Lucky me!!  For those of us as old as I am, you will remember this class being called Home Ec. My pumpkin bread recipe is a student favorite!  I always make it around Halloween and my students always tell me that it is a family favorite on their Thanksgiving table at either breakfast, brunch or dinner."
