As Paul headed out the door to go to work; Kathy, Mom and I headed into the kitchen to get to work. It is so nice to be able to be in the kitchen working along side Kathy and Mom. They are great cooks and we really work well together.
Here is what we made:
These delicious muffins are called Chocolate Pumpkin Chocolate Chip muffins and you can find the recipe on Lynn's Kitchen Adventure. These muffins are extra chocolaty and super moist.I recently found this awesome blog called Home Joys and I suggest you check it out and make these really easy Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bars.This Spiced Pumpkin Butter smelled so wonderful! I want to make some when I get home and I want to can them in little jars. Last year I made apple butter but I think this is my new favorite! We used the Better Homes and Garden Banana Bread recipe and added some pumpkin to make it even more moist. I didn't try any of this today but maybe I will get a slice for breakfast tomorrow.
I think the Pumpkin Butterscotch Muffins are my favorite. I will definitely be making these again and again. These Roasted Pumpkin Seeds were so delicious. I snacked on way to many of them today. This Chocolate Pumpkin Cheesecake Pie I think Mike would totally love. I liked it but it was too much chocolate for me. That is not a problem for Mike :-)
We got so much accomplished today. It was a great day of cooking, laughing and making memories!
