Personal Notes:
This is probably more of a Mortenson/each tradition than Donchetz, but it’s pretty heavy in our family life. During my first year of college at Loyola University, my suitemates and I hosted a Friendsgiving in our dorm. We brought cheese, (my first time tasting gouda), crackers, Chianti, Boone’s Farm wine and pumpkin bread. My suitemate Nellie made the pumpkin bread. It was delicious! I had never eaten pumpkin anything before, and couldn’t believe how tasty and moist this bread was.

This pumpkin bread has been a staple in care packages sent to college dorms, to salmon boats in Alaska, to apartments in Chicago and New York and was a welcome gift in wedding goodie bags. I always keep some in the freezer so it's on hand when everyone comes home. It’s a constant when the family gets together, whether we're enjoying it with breakfast or just snagging slices on our way to play outside. We continue to bake this bread and give as hostess gifts.
