Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

 I love this time of the year.  It is cool and crisp outside, the leaves are falling and I get to start baking with pumpkin!  The first thing I had to make was pumpkin bread.  I realize there are lots of pumpkin bread recipes out there.  This one is good enough to try. 

Get ready for some pumpkinified deliciousness.
 Mix sugar and butter with an electric mixer.  Add eggs, water, pumpkin and flour mixture until moistened.
 Add chocolate chips.  Mixture will be a little thick like this.
 I like to sprinkle mini chocolate chips on top of the batter
 with about a tablespoon of sugar on each loaf.  It gives your bread a delicious crust.
 Let cool.  Slice and enjoy.  It makes two to eat and one to share (or not *wink*).
