Apparently, I am a bad neighbor.
I mean, I try really really hard to be a good one. Tip-toe through the apartment at night to not disturb the people downstairs, offer to help the old lady next door to carry up her groceries... see? Proof that I TRY to be a good neighbor. And I would have said that I was ACTUALLY a good neighbor, until the other day showed me otherwise.
My neighbor was walking toward her apartment, laundry basket in front of her large, pregnant belly.
"Baby is almost here, right?" I asked. "Probably just a few more days?"
She looked at me with an odd expression for a few seconds and then said, "She is already here. She was born three weeks ago."
WHA...? I walk past their door how many times a day? How on earth did I miss that?!
See, not as good of a neighbor as I thought.
But this weeks 'Sundays with Joy' recipe totally made up for that. I mean, who could think I am a bad neighbor when I bring them a nice, fresh loaf of vegan pumpkin walnut bread? And on Pumpkin Day no less? Yeah, that's what I thought. I pulled it out of the oven and let it cool, and then wrapped it up (with what I had on hand, which is why that is yarn), and headed over, being all good-neighborly.
So maybe I am not so much of a bad neighbor as an unaware one...
Wanna be a good neighbor? Joy's recipe makes two perfect pumpkin loaves, great for sharing. Or great for keeping all to yourself. It's OK, I won't tell anyone ;)
.For this week's recipe, visit Joy's blog HERE or go buy a book HERE. You will be happy you did.
PS -- Yes, I am sharing my usual Sunday post today, on a Friday. That's because today is National Pumpkin Day and, more importantly, I have very special thing to share with you on Sunday. So come back and check it out! See you then :)
