Lemonade and Pumpkin

No, these two don't really go together. Typically, lemonade makes me think of summer and pumpkin brings thoughts of autumn. However, I was given an award a few weeks ago by Jane and Loves To Eat called the lemonade award. If you are not familiar with the Lemonade Award, it is given by a previous winner to 10 people who have shown a great attitude or gratitude this week. It’s a great way to show these people that you appreciate them. So....here are my awards:
1. Jenna at Eat, Live, Run
2. Deborah
at Taste and Tell
3. Ashley at A Year in the Kitchen
4. Laura at The Dawkins Narrative
5. Kaytie at Tiny Biscuits
6. Kristen at Dine and Dish
7. Erika at Tummy Treasure
8. Casey at Blog a la Bradshaw
9. Peabody at Culinary Concoctions by Peabody
10. Megan at The Johnsons

I hope all of you ladies enjoy your award! Now on to the Pumpkin!
I made this bread from Jenna's site MANY months ago, but it was so good I just have to share it with you. Jenna is a baker at Greenwise, so you know it has to be good! I halved the recipe and it still turned out well.
Spiced Pumpkin Bread by Jenna (halved with a slight alteration)
2 cups all purpose flour
1 cups sugar
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground allspice
1/2 tsp ground cloves
2 eggs
1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 CAN pumpkin
1/3rds cup warm water
1 cups chopped, toasted pecans

Per Jenna, just dump everything except the nuts into a mixing bowl, mix with a paddle attachment for about 2 minutes (or until everything has come together…do NOT over mix!!!!!), fold in the pecans and bake for 50 minutes at 350.

Wow - such a nice, dark color. And the bits of nuts add great crunch, I bet!

Oh, how nice! And perfect timing, as I was trying to come up with something to post about today. I think I can find a few bloggers to give an award too. :-) Thanks, Claire!
