Love to Cook Thursdays - Pumpkin Bread by Terri

This holiday season was so busy that I never got around to baking any pumpkin bread. So now that the holidays are over and life is somewhat calmer I decided to whip up a batch.  This recipe is another old family favorite. Tastes delicious served warm with butter.
