It's National Date Nut Bread Day!

Just in time for the holidays, here is a tasty treat.  This is the perfect bread for the season.  It contains dates, nuts and sugar, but not too much sugar.  Take it from us, it's very popular.  Make it yourself, if you like, or pick some up from a bakery.  You'll need at least two loafs, because in most homes, a single loaf doesn't last very long.

Go ahead and get your fill of this delicious treat today, after all you deserve it.

Now Let's P-A-R-T-Y!!
