I did a really dumb thing

I am wearing a dunce cap. Yep, a big tall one. It says DUNCE down the front in big black letters. Last night I was super mom. I made 11 loaves of pumpkin bread to give as gifts to teachers, neighbors, houses we visit to go caroling. I made them in two batches. The first four were beautiful. We gave them away tonight when we went Xmas caroling. The last seven were a little funky. they didn't rise correctly. they had a funny color. I stared at them for a few minutes.

HMMM.....

Then I looked at the counter where all the bowls, measuring cups, ingredients, 2 big unopened cans of pumpkin, ...HUH? Did she just say 2 unopened cans of pumpkin? YEP.

Adrian ate some of the unpumpkin bread today. He said the top tasted good. William tried some later. He thought the top tasted like a cookie.

Tonight I baked 12 more loaves. Beautiful, fragrant, orange in color. I put a little extra pumpkin in these to make up for forgetting it in last nights.
