Chocolate Chunk Pumpkin Bread

Today is the 1st day we turned on our furnace!  Personally,  I just love the cool air that lasts all day now and the smell of fall foods cooking  in my kitchen.   To celebrate the first day of Fall my girls and I whipped out 2 loaves of Chocolate Chunk Pumpkin Bread.  I can’t even tell you how good our house smells!  Smells of cinnamon, nutmeg and pumpkin pie.  The Chocolate Chunk Pumpkin bread was so good that all we have  left of the two loaves is about four slices.  I’m going to have to make some more tomorrow!  It is so delicious.  Happy Fall!
