The Christmas pins feature a variety of brightly colored stockings, santas, trees, presents, pointsettias, etc... Comfort Colors also has a line of dog pins - aren't these just way too cute?

Pumpkin bread falls in that category, too. Most bakeries serve me a slice of something way too dry to be a fancy bread in my book...
So here is batch 1 of this year's pumpkin bread:Only 2 more to go :) I'd make more than one batch at a time, but my bowl won't hold anymore than one batch... thus this year's christmas wish = gigantic mixing bowl.

Libby (if you haven't seen her yet, I introduce my fuzzy terror... errr, world's best behaved dog here) did not have a stocking before this weekend, but look what I got at the show to benefit Second Chance Adoptions! It was from Holiday Treasures, the women who were stuck next to me - the chatterbox - during Saturday's show. They've got lots of stockings in all themes in their shop in addition to beaded angels ornaments, and Lil' Angel Paintings!

Aunt Jane Can has a variety of fantasy art and free shipping on everything. (So I got myself another of her fairy notecards!) Risky Beads, creator of the handmade highway, has accessories with attitudes all at 15% off through Sunday. (This bracelet is definitely going on my list of wants to be put under hubby's nose!)
Well, last Saturday and Sunday were no exercise days for me.. that hasn't happened to me in a while - two days in a row without even a walk for the dog. Monday started me getting back onto the bandwagon and I finished the week very well!
Adding 16 more miles this week makes my new total 120!

So on to the brunch dish... I love this recipe - it is so easy (actually that qualifies for all of my recipes doesn't it?)
12 Slices Canadian Bacon
(**Recommendation, buy cheese slices and don't let your husband slice the cheese if he can't make even slices because you get the messy set up below versus a very pretty dish if your cheese is level.)
Drizzle cream over the whites until the yolks just peek through.
