The Proof Is In The Pumpkin

Happy Monday, Friends!

Before we charge off to piano lessons (the one civilized activity of the week), I thought I would take a moment to answer the one request so many of you made last week after reading this post about George's surgery, and that request was to see pics of George tasting his favorite food, pumpkin bread, for the first time post-surgery!

On Thursday George had his stints and stitches removed, and when the doctor asked him if he could breathe through his nose, George proceeded to take the deepest breathe you can imagine, after which I went ahead and bawled my two dollar mascara off right there in front of the doctor and his assistant.

Since then, let me tell you, George's taste buds are livin' the high life! Every food he's eaten has been like tasting it for the first time.  We get quite a kick out of how much he smiles while he chews, and is always offering a taste of whatever he's chomping on to everyone followed by, '"You have to try this, it's sooooo delicious!"

Friday morning he was really happy to be feeling like himself again, and couldn't wait to go out roguing (that's farm talk for pulling weeds) the soybeans with dad.  They left the house before sun-up and came home five hours later super hungry.
I had everything prepped for a big brunch, including pumpkin bread, which George was more than happy to help me make.
Pumpkin bread was the one thing George had been asking for since surgery, and watching him happily devour the warm loaves of bread, savoring every bite, was nothing short of delightful.
"Here's to you, here's to me, here's to food, it's so tasteeeeee!"

(we add chopped walnuts to the streusel, and hold the glaze).
