Cranberry Pumpkin Bread and Christmas music

What do you do when you have some leftover pumpkin in the fridge and a bag of fresh cranberries begging to be eaten?

Combine them in one fabulous dessert of course!

I have been craving a cranberry pumpkin bread for a while now and I am glad I did. It was super tasty.

I did get rid of the leftover pumpkin in my fridge, but I also opened up another can in which I had leftovers. It seems like for the past couple of months, I always have some leftover pumpkin in the fridge. I guess there are worse problems to have.

The recipe for the bread can be found here. I didn’t really make many changes. I did use fat free milk, egg whites instead of eggs, and I can’t believe it’s not butter. I also omitted the walnuts.

Mixing the ingredients together.

This was so tasty. Can you believe that this is the first time I have had fresh cranberries? The only other time I have had cranberries is the cranberry sauce from a can. Does that even count? Maybe those things aren’t even cranberries. The combination of the tart cranberries and sweet bread were very good indeed.

I also spent part of the day burning a CD of Christmas songs. I put a lot of the songs that were in my holiday collection of my Itunes library and burned them on a CD so that I can listen to them whenever I want. And my wonderful husband bought me the Glee Christmas album to add to my collection. Yay!

The following songs are on my Christmas CD:

The entire Glee Christmas album
Mariah Carey – All I Want for Christmas is You
Brenda Lee – Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree
Burl Ives – A Holly Jolly Christmas
Faith Hill – Where are you Christmas
Michael Buble – The Christmas Song
Michael Buble – Grown-Up Christmas List
Gene Autry – Up on the Housetop
entire Christmas album by Straight No Chaser – these guys are AWESOME! I love their rendition of “Twelve Days of Christmas.”

I love Christmas music (as long as it’s after Thanksgiving). What is your favorite Christmas song?
