Cantaloupe Quick Bread

 

 
Here’s good news for all the ‘Cantaloupe Haters’ like me.. 🙂 Yeah!! You read it right…I meant Cantaloupe a.k.a Muskmelon ‘haters’. You must be wondering if I have gone crazy…. Definitely Not. I am just overjoyed by the fact that I found a way to consume the Cantaloupe lyingon my countertop
It was the recipe by Linda K from Allrecipesthat came to my rescue. I was drawn to this recipe as it was mentioned that it doesn’t taste a bit like cantaloupe. Yippee!!! Icouldn’task for more. I just got into action right away. Truth be told, I didn’t have the patience to wait for an hour of baking….so took the shorter microwave way. After my first bite I was thanking my stars for deciding to try this recipe. Now all I had to do was for my boys to give their verdict. As expected, it was a thumbs up!! Boy!! Am I happy??? You bet 😀
