Pumpkin Bread

Hey!  It’s November and pumpkin season is FAAAAAR from over!  So deal with it!  Today’s indulgence was Pumpkin Bread with Chocolate AND Peanut Butter chips.  I used this recipe, but cut out one of the cups of sugar (totally didn’t miss it – in fact, next time I might even cut more out) and did 1 cup of regular chocolate chips and 1 cup of peanut butter chips.  DSC_2128Wow – this is GOOD. 

  DSC_2133 DSC_2134 DSC_2139 Kids loved it too, obviously!  Dylan said, “Mom! This is the best thing EVER!”  (Notice a trend with him?)  And Avery stood next to Dylan while he was eating and kept saying, “Yummy! Yummy!  Yummy!”  over and over again.  That’s what she says when she wants a bite of something she thinks is yummy.  Smile DSC_2151 DSC_2154

They were enjoying each other’s company once again today.  Avery was laughing out loud on more than one occasion.  I don’t get it, but whatever!  Wink DSC_2159

Their snow boots arrived today, so we immediately had a fashion show.  Avery was already dressed up in the skirt she just got.  Boots seemed like the likely next addition to her already fabulous outfit.  I think they might have to go back for a smaller size though.  She seemed to be having troubles.

Dinner this evening was Crispy Chickpea Bites from OSG.  I actually made these while Dylan and Eric were up in Crookston, but never got a chance to post about them.  They are awesomely good!  Crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside.  And the flavor is amazing!  Avery thinks they are cookies (yummies) and Dylan said they tasted like chicken nuggets.  Sarcastic  So, I win?


That is all for now!  Bedtime in t minus 1 HOUR!  Wooohooo!


  1. OMG!! what cute pix of Avery!! and can't believe she's getting even more blonde. I don't find it unusual that she thinks her brother is sooo funny----it's in the genes, Ed!!!
    The bread sure does look yummy--wasn't sure about the choc and p. butter chips, but I certainly would like a piece right now!!
    Will definately make the chick-pea patties--yours look even better than the glo girls!! XXXX MOM
