How did you spend the day? Mia spent the day as a butterfly, Max spent the day as Superman, Zackary spent the day as a baby, and I spent the day doing a little bit of everything.
I was able to get all of the packing and cleaning done. We should be able to wake up tomorrow and leave right away! I hope everyone has a great week. I leave you with one more pumpkin recipe before Halloween.
Pumpkin Bread
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup oil + 1/4 cup butter
1 cup pumpkin
1 2/3 cup flour
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/4 tsp. salt

Chocolate Chips and Nuts

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Combine butter and oil with the sugars and mix well. Add the eggs and the pumpkin.
3. Blend the dry ingredients together and add to the wet ingredients.
4. At this point you can add chocolate chips or nuts.
5. Pour batter into greased pans (we topped ours with some sprinkles and I think it really made them fabulous.
Bake for 30-40 minutes (depending on loaf size)
