Yesterday we celebrated Sukkot with Nadav's family. It's true, there are about
30 4 Jewish holidays in September/October. I think it's kinda awesome.
On Sukkot we celebrate the harvest, enjoy yummy food, and hang out in a sukkah (which is mhm.. kind of like a outdoor fort made out of wood). It's a really a good time =) I wanted to bring something really yummy to the party, and was so excited when I found this recipe for Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread (perfect for celebrating the harvest right?)
This deliciousness was pretty easy to make, made our house smell so good, and was so yummy. It's basically the perfect fall recipe. :)

Happy October =)
