It's been almost 5 months since I last blogged. I needed a good break away to decide if blogging was still for me. After much thought about it I have decided that I love this way of recording the lives of our littles. (Well little and not so little anymore.) I absolutely love sitting down and looking through old posts and seeing the things that we've been up to and how much they've grown.
I started this blog when Andon was 4. He will be turning 9 in a month! He has grown and changed so much in that short time. So have I.. I remember when I first began blogging, I was so uncomfortable with the idea of putting information out there. I set it all up and Jared wrote the first post for me. My sweet encourager. I was also in a completely different place. Not that I am any where near having it all together now. I just know more of who I am now. That makes a big difference.
I thought I'd share a simple Pumpkin Bread recipe on here for anyone interested. Fall is my favorite time of year. So even though we live in Fl and it was smoking hot on the first day of Fall I had to stake my claim on that day!! I made this yummy bread and big pot of chili. And we sat in the AC pretending there was crisp cool air outside and the leaves were turning all sorts of reds, and oranges and yellows..
This recipe comes from my friend's hubby Mat. I only changed a few things about it and you can do the same based on what you have.
3 1/2 C Flour
2 1/2 C Sugar
1 tsp Salt
1 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Ground Nutmeg
1 Can Canned Pumpkin
1 C Corn Oil
2/3 C Water
4 Eggs one at a time
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour your pan/pans. I used a bundt pan but you could use 2 9x5x3 bread pans. Mix/Stir the ingredients in both bowls. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and add the pumpkin mixture. Stir it just until the flour is moistened and pour into your pan. Bake for one hour.
This bread was so moist and delish. Too bad or maybe not so bad i'm the only one in my house who likes anything that has to do with pumpkin. I served it to company, ate my fair share and froze the rest. If you try it i'd love to hear how it turned out!
