a fall breakfast...
Well it sure feels like fall around here with the cool weather, bright skies, and the sun setting earlier. Fall is for sure my favorite season, and I'm excited to experience it with our son this year. We'll try to go to a pumpkin patch, the Renaissance Faire, have apple cider from back home, and try some great recipes.
Two nights ago, I made a Butternut Squash Risotto that was pretty tasty, and today I made pumpkin muffins for my breakfast. They are the perfect pairing with my cup of coffee.
Here's the recipe I adapted from a few sites:
1 1/2 c. natural sugar
1/4 tsp. baking powder (we've cut out traditional baking powder from the house and make this substitute.)
3/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 2/3 c. flour
1/2 c. natural applesauce
1/2 c. cold water
1 c. pure pumpkin
Mix everything together in one bowl. Place in greased muffin tins. Bake at 325° for about 40 minutes.
I am getting really excited because tomorrow, Landon's brother and his wife are coming to watch Finn overnight so Landon and I can go to a bed and breakfast to celebrate an early anniversary. Ben and Casey got us a gift certificate for this adorable place a few hours away, and we are really really looking forward to a whole 24 hours without a baby. We'll check out some hiking, I'm taking this new book to read, and just do a lot of relaxing.
This will be the first time away from Finn overnight, so hopefully I can just forget about him and enjoy the time with my husband.
What about you, what are your plans for this weekend?
Have a great one!
