Mini Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

This moist, delicious pumpkin bread is studded with a ton of mini chocolate chips.
It will be the quick bread you turn to each year come Fall.

We are three days away from Halloween and this pumpkin bread is probably the only orange treat you'll see coming from me.

Sorry, I just don't get too excited about the holiday.  In fact, I kind of dread it.  Some people start planning their outfits November 1 of the previous year.  Ha.  Not me.  The first week of November you'll only find me planning my holiday baking schedule.

My kids are going as a skeleton {he wanted to be a mummy, but this Mummy found a $3 skeleton outfit at Goodwill}, Rapunzel {a friend is letting me borrow her HAND SEWN costume} and an Iowa Hawkeye cheerleader {because, third child and it's a hand-me-down from her older sister}.

Obviously you can see how excited I get about all of this.

Maybe someday when I don't have three kids under the age of 7, Halloween school concerts to attend, candy to buy, costumes to find, borrow and steal and let's face it a household to run, I'll get more into the spirit.

Until then, you need to be satisfied with this orange-y looking quick bread that just happens to be the bee's knees in deliciousness.

One thing I am looking forward to this weekend is...wait for it...NOTHING!  We don't have any major plans and that my friends excites the crap out of me.

I should probably rephrase this, I do have some plans, but they are all things I'm looking forward to, so therefore they don't feel like "plans".  Know what I mean?

First and foremost we'll be cheering our little hearts out for the Cubs.  Oh you've been living under a rock and haven't heard?  Yeah, they are in the World Series for the first time since 1945, so we are just a wee bit excited here in the Midwest.  Homemade pizza and wine are on the menu tonight while I plop my butt on the couch with fingers crossed.

I also have a couple of baking projects to dive into.  On for the blog {think holiday cookie!} and one for our former babysitter.  You see, she decided to become a real adult and get a big kid job, like in a corporate setting, and while she is still living across the street from us and we'll see her often she will know longer be my go-to gal when we need to escape the cherubs. I may have gotten emotional about it and shed a tear {or ten}.  She's been watching our kids for seven years!  The kids asked if they could bake a batch of her favorite cookies as a parting gift, so this is also on our agenda.

Who knows, maybe I'll whip up another batch of this bread?  Quick bread is so easy as it involved no yeast and can be mixed together in just one bowl.

I added approximately 289 mini chocolate chips for good measure.  Bake this up this weekend for a special treat and you won't even remember Halloween is just around the corner.
