I was 'tagged' my my dear friend Kristin today to participate in a holiday tea party!  Sounds like alot of fun!

It's the Holiday Season! How many of you are ready to celebrate? Let's spread a little bit (a cup, if you will) of warm holiday cheer around the blogosphere, shall we? Here's how it works (kind of like a chain letter, except less complicated, more fun, and there's no bad luck/good luck involved ;-)):

#1 - Blank -
#2 - Kristin from Windy Poplars:
#3 - Melanie from Country Roads:

*If you were tagged in this post, copy and paste the contents on your blog.

*Move my name to the #2 position (moving #2 now up to #1, and erasing #1).

*Place your name, blog link, and e-mail address in the #3 position.

*E-mail the people whom you have now moved to the #1 and #2 slots to get their snail mail addresses.

*Send them each a teabag of your favorite tea. Feel free to include a note or postcard from your state/area (optional). You can mail a tea bag with a regular first class stamp.

*Tag 10 blog friends of your own and keep the tea party going.

*Enjoy the tea bags you receive, and new blog friends you've made!

So to recap: all that you're investing is two stamps, two bags of tea, and the re-posting of this party info. I hope, in the spirit of the season, you'll thoroughly enjoy sharing a cup of tea with one another! Cheers!

Now onto the recipe portion of this post!  I made something today I'd been meaning to make for a week now..I finally got around to it!  Its cranberry pumpkin bread..mmm..can't you just smell it?!  I thought I'd share the recipe with y'all..I havent tried it yet but its sure to be good.  The recipe came from my WV Pumpkin Festival Cookbook!

Cranberry Pumpkin Bread

2 beaten eggs
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup oil
1 cup Libby's pumpkin
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice (I used cinnamon since I couldnt find this in my pantry!)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped fresh cranberries

Combine eggs, sugar, oil and pumpkin in large bowl and beat well.  Combine flour, pie spice (or cinnamon), soda and salt and add to pumpkin mixture.  Stir until just moistened.  Stir in cranberries.  Spoon batter into 2 greased and floured loaf pans (bread pans).  Bake at 350 for 1 hour or until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Have a great weekend everyone!!
