Friday morning I sewed the nine Supernova blocks together and then began working on the borders. I sewed up one side of the borders and then realized that the spacing was off with where the coordinating print lines up with the Supernova blocks. By Friday afternoon the kitchen needed attention so the borders were put on hold and Pumpkin Bread was made.
I have a love affair with (almost) all things pumpkin: Pumpkin Bread, Pumpkin Ice Cream, Pumpkin Cheesecake, Godiva Pumpkin Truffles, etc., but I do not like Pumpkin Pie. Mmmmm Pie...but not Pumpkin Pie. The downside of baking with pumpkin is that there are months out of the year when cans of pumpkin are impossible to find in the store. Pumpkin is a relatively easy crop to grow...if you live in Southern California - where I've grown one of these in my backyard for years:

My go-to Pumpkin Bread recipe comes from The Foster's Market Cookbook, a cookbook in which I have yet to find a bad recipe. Please go here for a link to the recipe. The recipe makes two 9 by 5 inch loaves, one of which is practically gone within hours and the other I slice, place in sandwich bags and freeze to enjoy whenever I want.
