Post-prandial Pumpkin

Or The Morning after the Night Before
I'm guessing I'm not the only one who opened their fridge this morning and found this:
It is, of course, a great big pulpy bowl of prepared pumpkin innards. And I know it needs attending to. I have 2 ideas:
1.Delicious Pumpkin Muffin Recipe

Ingredients :

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 cups cinnamon

1 teaspoon baking soda

¼ teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon salt

1 ½ cups sugar

¾ cups vegetable oil

3 large eggs

3 cups shredded pumpkin, fresh or frozen

• Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Prep the baking pans with non-stick cooking spray or muffin cases.

• Sift the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and salt together.

• In a separate bowl, mix the sugar, vegetable oil and eggs. Combine both mixtures and fold in the shredded pumpkin. Once the ingredients are incorporated pour into muffin tins.

• Bake for 30-35 minutes.

2. (And this is my preferred option today) Freeze the lot. I've done this before and it works perfectly well. I'm going to bag up pumpkin portions, ready to bake into muffins on another day. Probably a cold, dull rainy day when a bit of extra cosiness will go down well all round. The kind of day when staying inside and scrapbooking seems a Very Good Thing to do.

I won't be doing any special Halloween pages this year, though. The Small One decided she was just a little bit too big for dressing up. Or maybe she had a sneaking suspicion that last year's costume simply couldn't be beat: I give you Wednesday Addams. Method acting? Who said that?

If you fancy a bit of Halloween crafting inspiration after the event, the Copy+Paste girls will still be happy to see you. Check them out!
