This is nothing special, well to you anyway. I'm not a scrapbook type, or a baby book writer, or even a picture printer. I'm terrible at recording memories. This blog is my attempt at holding on to some of my life as a Christian, a wife, and a homeschooling Mom of 5. I am a country girl that lived in a big city for 14 years, and moved to the Deep South for quiet, quaint, small town living.

Pumpkin Overload?

Muffins, pasta, coffee..... it is feeling like Fall.  We have tried a pumpkin pasta recipe (yum!), a homemade pumpkin spiced late recipe (extra yum!), and an old stand by favorite- pumpkin muffins!

This is an old weight watchers recipe that someone told me a long time ago (not in weight watchers though) and I love it!  Just any baking box mix and a can of pumpkin (I used half a 15 oz can per box).  I have tried lots of different mixes and flavors. and I love them all.  I have used pumpkin pie cans and regular pumpkin puree.  It all works, it just depends on if you want the added spices in your particular combo.
It took just a few mins to mix up chocolate chocolate chip muffin mix with pumpkin to make a tray of regular sized muffins and a tray of mini muffins.  Then I did the same thing with a yellow cake mix and added mini chocolate chips.  We had lots of muffins!
