Peter, Peter Pumpkin Eater

Remember these?
I decided to roast and puree the pie pumpkins this year, and I'm so excited with the way they turned out! I've been trying lots of pumpkin recipes, and thought I would share a few:
Pumpkin Pancakes Martha Stewart
Pumpkin Cookies The Good Apple
I also hope to try these soon:

Yeah, I'm a little out of control. Think this is a pregnancy craving? :)

Halloween Fun

We had a great Halloween! We started the day at a birthday party for my cousin's kids, complete with a petting zoo! Tink wasn't so excited about the "petting" part, but she loved making noises at the animals and playing with her cousins. The plan was to go home and wait for trick-or-treaters, but as soon as R saw all of the kids on our street, he talked me into taking Tink to a few houses. It didn't take her long to catch on, and she had a blast! We made it home in time to answer the door for awhile, and she had a great time handing out candy and seeing all of the costumes (after I looked through the peep hole to make sure the grim reaper wasn't standing there, of course) :) Enjoy the pics!

I'm not going to touch it, if that's what you're waiting for . . .

Now, this is more my speed!

Such cute animal cupcakes!
