Thanksgiving Bread?

I tried another loaf of bread this weekend from Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. The recipe is for Pumpkin Oatmeal bread, but they also suggest adding dried cranberries and toasted pepitas. I had both on hand in preparation for a granola recipe I've been wanting to make, so I gave it a go. The recipe calls for 1 cup of pumpkin puree, which can be canned or made from your own roasted pumpkin. (Just don't roast your watery jack-o-lantern pumpkin, yuck! Go for what's called a 'pie pumpkin'. Doesn't this loaf just shout "Thanksgiving"?

You bakers out there... what's on your to-bake list for Thanksgiving? Do tell!

We've been eating this bread for the past week. Kip doesn't like it, but the rest of us do. Did you like it with the nuts and cranberries?

think I would prefer cherries over cranberries, even though it's less thanksgiving-y. Makes me miss you! Love your cookies for the teachers as well!
