Carrot Bread

 I admit it.  Myrna and I squabbled (Hey, we’re still sisters!) over who was going to make this carrot bread recipe from the "Harvest Time Cookbook” and I won!  Then when we saw it in another Pillsbury cookbook we were looking at, we both chose it again, forgetting that it was already on our list.  You know a recipe is good when it appears in more than one cookbook from the same folks!  As you can see, it is loaded with carrot goodness, not too sweet, and a perfect complement to a main dish salad, on a buffet, or for coffee time, anytime.  We like it just lightly buttered (with the real thing), but it’s also good with cream cheese spreads.  Freeze your leftover slices (if you have any) in sandwich bags, 2 to a bag, and they'll thaw out while you make coffee.
