Last Day in the Life of Pumpkin Szrama

I sliced and baked 'im until nice and soft on Friday, while I had the oven hot for other things. Then, I spent the afternoon on Saturday pureeing, mixing, stirring and popping pumpkin-y goodies in and out of ovens.

Pumpkin Muffins & Pie (both gluten-free!) risin'

Yumminess, cooling.
Yield: 30 chocolate-chip pumpkin muffins, 1 pumpkin pie, and one pumpkin-apple bake (which I made up on the spot), plus savory mashed pumpkin for dinner and another tray full to bake with butter and brown sugar. It was a big pumpkin.

So pretty...
You'll have to turn your head. My computer has outwitted me on this one.

Friendly Fall Table
I called Ashlea and she came for a study break, punctuated mostly by fresh, hot pumpkin pie.

I can't take him anywhere... :)

The Art of Coffee-Brewing
Ashlea brought her new Turkish Coffee set. It went so well with the pie!

PS- this post has taken me SO long to finish... internet woes. And Ryan says this batch of muffins is the best I've made yet. I agree-- the secret, I think, is milled flaxseed. Maybe the fresh pumpkin, too. Or maybe it was the beater Ryan got for me at Target (we divided & conquered on our errands)... anyway the muffins are huge and wonderful!!! Come visit & we'll give you some!

Wow, that must have been a big pumpkin! I'm surprised Ashlea didn't try to convince you to put chili powder in the pie...or did she? Cute pictures - I'm snatching the one of you and Ashlea for my blog. Thanks! ;)

Man, that Ryan guy has such an awesome wardrobe. I can't believe he has such cool clothes without ever really going shopping! What a blessing to you, your marriage, and your budget. I feel proud of him and I don't even know him!
