It's officially Fall!

Well, it finally feels like it at my house. Today the weather was cool and breezy. We put a pot roast in the crock pot for dinner (recipe here). Then we made Pumpkin Bread.

I love pumpkin bread and make it every Fall. Today my son helped me mix it, well he helped for like 5 minutes. I baked 3 loaves and 18 muffins. We'll be eating this all week. LOL Actually, a bunch of it will be taken to work by my husband and some to the preschool teachers and family and friends, so we wont be overloaded by it.

Here's my recipe...

Some pictures of the pumkin bread baking action that took place...





Even though it's officially Fall and that makes me smile, it is also a sad sad day here in my kitchen. My oldest and most beloved spatula suffered a fatal blow while scraping the bowl of pumpkin bread mix. Blue Handled Spatula will be sadly missed and very hard to replace (I can never find another one like it at the stores, the new ones are too floppy).

So, as I sit here eating warm pumpkin bread with a little smear of butter and a glass of apple cider, I feel excited at the thought of pumpkin carving, roasted pumpkin seeds, jumping in piles of leaves and Halloween being right around the corner. I also hope someone in my family can find me a new blue spatula for Christmas or there may be a shortage of baked goods around here next year. (hint hint)
