Fall is just around the corner and with cooler weather approaching, I think of bread. Banana bread, Pumpkin bread, Zucchini bread. They're all so good. This summer I made several loaves of zucchini and banana bread and put them in the freezer so that I can just pop them out during the fall. Today it has been cloudy and the temps have dropped some (still warm but not HOT) and it made me ready for some bread. I took out a loaf of Banana Nut w/ Chocolate Chips! Yummy...I couldn't wait for it to thaw as you can see in the picture!
