Potted pumpkin bread....or banana...

With just a few ingredients you can make this.....from Style me Pretty
Somtimes you can get the best ideas from places so unexpected.....Enjoy!
-ingredients for bread (any quick bread…doesn’t have to be this recipe)- grocery store-medium sized terra cotta flower pots- Walmart $.45 each-wax or parchment paper-grocery store-pretty ribbon- craft store
(yields five medium potted loaves…multiply according to however many guests you’re expecting )
-buy meduim-sized terra cotta flower pots ($0.45 @ Wal-Mart). Make sure to take off any stickers and wash well. Stuff a small ball of wax paper into the drain hole in the bottom of the pot.
-make bread acording to directions: Kona Banana Bread
2 c. sugar1c. butter (or 1/2 c butter, 1/2 c. Crisco)3 eggs6 very ripe bananas2 tsp. baking soda2 1/2 c. flour1 tsp. salt1 c. broken walnuts
Mash bananas in separate bowl. Cream together butter, sugar, and eggs. Add bananas and beat well. Add dry ingredients and mix only until smooth. Stir in chopped nuts. SEPARATE INTO 5 MEDIUM SIZED FLOWER POTS). MAKE SURE THEY’RE GREASED WELL. Put flower pots on a cookie sheet and bake @ 350 degrees for about 50 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean when poked in.
-Let cool on a cooling rack
Cut 8.5×8.5 squares of wax paper. Put over the top of the bread, and fasten with pretty ribbon

Maybe add a packet of seeds that can be used in the pot once the bread is gone. Love it, going to write it down for teacher's Christmas gifts.
