Let them eat bread

This recipe for Lemon Bread by Randi at I Have to Say is one of my all time favorite recipes.

First, you all know that I love anything lemon flavored. Second, it's just so simple and delicious. And lastly, it gets better the longer it sits. The first few days, it's definitely bread. Best eaten for breakfast warmed up with some butter. Then the last few days, it's kind of like cake, Best eaten with a fork, after dinner for dessert. It's a very strange phenomenon, but one I'm not going to question because it is so yummy!
