Pumpkin Bread

This is my new favorite pumpkin bread recipe! Amazing flavor and came together very quickly. The only hard part was waiting for it to bake! I was too impatient to press out the excess moisture on a rimmed baking sheet, so I just used a bowl and pressed out some of the excess water from the pumpkin. Obviously, this left quite a bit in the pumpkin and I'm sure affected my baking time (~60 minutes), but what resulted was a delicious bread which is still delicious 5 days later. I highly recommend this recipe!

Pico de Gallo

Yum! Because I'm a total wimp and cannot handle any heat beyond black pepper (and sometimes not even that), I generally omit chiles/jalapenos in my pico. I also add a tiny bit of EVOO and about 1 1/2 tsp kosher salt. After stirring together, I let it sit for a few minutes and then pour off some of the liquid, because as previously stated, the salt ADDS to the watery content, not subtracts from it. This extra liquid is tasty added to some oil for a salad dressing!
