Living in the desert is particularly depressing when September rolls around and the highs are still hitting 110. In other parts of the world temperatures are cooling, leaves are changing colors, and people are pulling out scarves and long sleeved shirts to wear to keep them warm.
At this time of year, I envy those people. That is when I need pumpkin things the most. As you may recall, we now have a several years supply of canned pumpkin. I cannot tell you how happy that makes me. Well, since we also have a little one running around (okay crawling around for now, but it won't be long until those little feet are running) and I buy bananas much more frequently now.
However, I personally have never been a huge banana eater. I usually forget I have them until they are perfect for banana bread. So, since our little BP is the main banana eater in the house, we still end up with plenty of banana bread ready bananas.
Well, presto, my pumpkin needs combined with our leftover banana to make this tasty, moist, pumpkin banana bread!
As you well know, pumpkin bread is amazing on it's own, as is banana bread. However, with the pumpkin and banana bread powers combined, this pumpkin banana bread is unstoppable! You will be too, when it comes to eating it!
As I devoured my loaf I pretended it was 65 degrees outside instead of 105. It was a great escape from reality.
I better go make more because the high tomorow is supposed to be 107.
Here are some of my favorite items to use while making this recipe!
