21 days to go

Simple Pumpkin Muffins
3 1/2 c. flour
2 tsp. baking soda
3 c. sugar
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tbs cinnamon
1tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground ginger

Mix all those dry things in a bowl larger than you expected...and then add 1 cup oil, 4 farm eggs, 2/3 cup water, and 2 cups of pumpkin. Mine was a little stringy but after the beaters got to it all was well. Grease your muffin tins with butter and add a sprinkle of flour too. Shake out excess flour and then fill then 3/4 of the way full (though I went nearly to the top...) Bake at 350 for about twenty minutes, check to make sure a toothpick comes out clean. I spread cream cheese icing on mine after they cooled. Coworkers will be happy.

Oh, delicious! Pumpkin is my favourite vegetable, so I'm pretty excited that it's finally available here. My method of celebration, however, was making pumpkin scones - they're something of an Australian classic. Seriously, try it sometime! I promise you won't regret it! :)

MMMMM! Can't wait to try it! We had some lovely little soccer ball sized one's at the farmers market, but still being new to the whole urban homestead thing I was thinking of decorations, not food...duh! So next week pumpkins will definitely be on my list....the kids will go crazy for 'em!

On a side note, have you read Radical Homemakers:Reclaiming Domesticity from a Consumer Culture, By Shannon Hayes, yet? I just finished it, and was definitely inspired. It's not a "how to" book, per se, but more of a validation of this lifestyle that so many of us have chosen to live. I thought you might be interested in checking it out.

Hey there...I MADE these last night and they were OMGosh...D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S!!! I added 1/4 oat bran (less 1/4 whole wheat flour), used brown sugar instead of white, added extra nutmeg and some pure vanilla and coated the muffin holes with coconut oil instead of butter. I had THREE in one sitting. I paid for that at one in the morning. Thanks for the inspiration Jenna!!

A friend of mine suggested that I use sugar instead of flour to line the muffin tin. It is delicious with banana muffins and might be good with pumpkin too.
