AT&T and Pumpkin Bread

We’ve been unplugged for a couple of days.  A lightning strike next door sent rumbles through the lines of the neighborhood it seems.  Our little cul-de-sac was filled with repair people all day yesterday.  Ours was here for around four hours.  I guess he really liked us!?att

Last night, while we still had several AT&T folks in our hood… became a little block party, as it so often does.  Cool weather, kids playing, neighbors catching up…..all under the umbrella of a beautiful sunset.att sunset nite

Since fall is upon us, a sweet friend and follower gave me permission to share her mom’s fabulous recipe for Pumpkin Bread If you do share this… sure and remind them it’s a secret. 🙂

Hand written recipes are forever treasures.  Thank you, Darla A ♥att darla's recipe

What does a lightning strike and pumpkin bread have to do with each other, you might ask?  Absolutely nothing.  But since it’s my blog, I can mix it up! 🙂

Thanks to Charles at AT&T for staying with us til the job was done.  Happy Saturday, friends ♥  Be nice to people!

    …. I wonder how we will be able to bake bread … if there is no electricity – but maybe .. that connection isn’t needed *smile … just love the little sweet note (the recipe)- Welcome back.
    You were lucky in all this .. next door is very close.

    • 🙂 Yes….we were very fortunate. But I feel so bad for our sweet neighbor who is out today replacing all appliances, etc. We just never know! How are you feeling, friend?

      • viveka says:

        I’m feeling great now .. the butt is behaving. *smile
        Your neighbors was lucky too .. it could gone really bad. It happen with my first PC while living in Belfast, killed my motherboard – the lighting went down in the neighborhood and a young boy burned him quite bad while being on the phone. As you said .. we just never know.

      • Hubby had unplugged our laptops on this day as storms were expected “later” in the day. Yes….everyone is fine. But burn marks behind cords are freakish!

        I know they tell us here to stay away from windows…don’t be outside….don’t be on the phone or near plumbing. I guess you are just to stand in the middle of the largest room and wait?!?! 🙂 But on this particular day….it was simply an unexpected “burst”.

        That poor little guy! That is awful!

      • viveka says:

        I trun PC off … but the netbook is not connect to something, but maybe I should turn that off too. And the router – forgotten that one. The rest I leave up to faith … but I wouldn’t stand under a tree during thunder *smile

      • haha!! Good point! Neither would I! 🙂

  8. I read this because I love…pumpkin bread, and I also enjoyed your post!

    Another pumpkin bread lover here…well, all things pumpkin or autumn:-) Gorgeous sunset! So glad you are back with us…that lightening was a bit close!! Happy autumn season:-)

    • VERY close. When it hit I was in the car leaving and thought it had hit the car….it was THAT loud. Just a random pop-up storm.

      Autumn is my favorite season! I look forward to the changing leaves! ♥

      • Jeannette from the CA coast says:

        We rarely have thunder or lightening storms where I live. But when we do, I do not like them:( I grew up with them in the Midwest, but as a kid they didn’t bother me. Not so anymore. Now my friend Delores (AZ Delores) LOVES them! I’m so happy for her:)

      • I love watching it from the front porch….in the distance! This was not that kind! Delores….love that Delores ♥

  10. Wow — you get mighty, mighty thunder storms there! Wow.

    And… love the sunset and… 🙂 I would love to make this recipe but am not sure… what is Milnot?

    I enjoyed your post and the photo of the beautiful sunset!

  12. shreejacob says:

    The picture of the sunset is GLORIOUS!!!!!!

  13. What a fun time and thanks for the recipe, I may have to try the bread!

  14. Okay, who is the Darla which provided the recipe. It wasn’t me; I know my memory is bad, but I don’t think I sent you a recipe. LOL

  15. tchistorygal says:

    Funny, I thought of our internet Darla, too! I’m glad someone else asked about Milnot. I’d never heard of it. I love the story, thic pics, and the recipe, too. I can’t wait to try it! 🙂

    • Hmmmm….I wonder if milnot (canned evaporated milk) and eaglebrand (sweetened evaporated milk) are southern “thangs”? It’s all I’ve ever heard! 🙂 I am guessing Darla W has an awesome Pumpkin Bread recipe as well!!! 🙂

  16. I tried the pumpkin bread this past weekend. I substituted evaporated milk for the Milnot and self-rising flour for all purpose. It looked like a lot of batter so I put it in 3 loaf pans BUT it didn’t rise. Matter of fact, all that batter sunk to a 1″ loaf on all three. I know know to fill the loaf pans to the brim to maybe get a full-sized loaf. It tastes good, tho.
