We’ll answer all of your questions right on the spot. So today, oh it's fall we’re doing pumpkin bread, fat-free pumpkin bread or pumpkin loaf, and other word loaf just like sounds to—but it’s kind a cakey, it's really good, and it's virtually fat free because each slice is like a half gram of fats. So, I'm just going to say it’s fat free because it’s basically what it is. What we’re going to do first, you want to start with like a bread, a loaf pan type of thing. I'm just kind of spray it down which is a little bit non-stick spray, you know, just to make sure that, you know, you want to get the edges, you want to get the bottom of everything, you don’t want to make it too greasy though, okay. So, were going to do that, all right. So now to start, we’re going to start with the dry ingredients first. Oh, you want to pre-heat your oven at 350, this is going to be like about an hour of bake time but it’s so worth it, very much worth it. So, we’re going to start with some whole wheat flour, unbleached. I prefer it a lot better than white flour. We’re going to do one and a half cups. One and a half cups. I just like to use the half cup because I don’t want to keep dirtying everything okay. Okay, so we have a cup in a half of the four, right there. Okay, the next thing that we’re going to use is going to be a little bit of baking soda. Well, the baking soda we’re going to use, one and a quarter teaspoons of the baking soda. So, we got a quarter teaspoon right here, okay and one teaspoon here. Kit seems like a lot but that’s what we’re going to do. Okay, so the next thing that we’re going to do is about a tablespoon of cinnamon and I can kind of measure it out as I pour. Cinnamon, it gives you that, you know, just that full feeling. And then what you want to do is put in more spices like cloves and nutmegs. So, I found this really awesome pumpkin spice, pumpkin pie spice, okay. So, I'm going to use this in there instead of just using, you know, one teaspoon of each thing so what I'm going to do is I'm going to put in a tablespoon of this stuff. I think it's really good, it gives that character. I know it smells like—in here. It does. Okay, boom there we go. Okay. And then we’re just going to use a teaspoon of salt but I'm just kind of fill it out and Italian that’s how we cook in the family, you know. So, there we go, dry ingredients, kind a boring, that’s alright. So, we have the dry ingredients all kind of mixed together. Now, we’re going to go with the wet ingredients, the pumpkin. First thing we’re going to do is one cup of pumpkin and what I will do is just kind a scoop it into my little half cup because it's ready to use. Anyway, I hate that noise. Oh that noise! Okay, so there we go with the pumpkin. Okay. Now, the next thing we want to do is I will use about a half a cup of milk, low fat milk, this is a one percent, I'm sorry, half percent. Don’t ask me why, it's in the house so I can use this. Chris: They ran out of skim milk. Jennifer DiDonato: They ran out of skim milk at the grocery store apparently. Okay get this, so I go at the town. Chris can you do the grocery shopping or we should go shopping together, and yeah, yeah. Okay, so he finally found one on S
