You might remember I posted a little while ago about my love of all the pumpkin things….
The love continues with this so very yummy pumpkin bread from Smitten Kitchen:
It had this yummy cinnamon-sugar crust on top and it is delicious. I brought it to The Spinning Room and the class participants and customers agreed!
Speaking of knitting classes, here are the in-progress slippers-to-be-felted:
And here are the beginnings of the Miss Winkle scarves(with pumpkin bread):
And here are the beginnings of the Superhero Hats (all being made for girls!):
And speaking of more pumpkins…. I showed you my Spice Pumpkin that I made on the trip to Rhinebeck:
Well, I can’t stop making them…
I’ve actually made five but gave one away and I’m about to start another one. Pretty soon I’m going to have a whole patch full.
I made pumpkin bread with my pureed pumpkin from last year’s harvest. Yes, I admit it, it’s been frozen for a year and I still used it. I have no idea the recommended time frame for freezing pumpkin but the bread turned out great. I used my trusty The New Good Housekeeping Cookbook for the recipe. It makes one, very large, bread.
Putting the pan in the oven was slightly terrifying…. it was so full I was afraid it would overflow once it started rising:
Look how full that is! …but it was fine and rose very nicely:
It was so yummy! Especially the end piece (my fave), cut while it was still warm and a little crispy, slathered with butter:
Doesn’t it make you want to make some?
And, while I was on my excursion to purchase donuts the other day, I stopped in at Home Goods after a tip from my friend, Lisa, that they had dress forms there. Who knew Home Goods would have dress forms?
Exactly what I wanted/needed for displaying and photographing my handknits! (that is my Citron shawl). I resisted the urge to shop around…they have a lot of good stuff there. It could have been bad. But then again, I’m having a tag sale this Sunday, so there will be a little more room here for “stuff”.
More knitting to come….it’s been a little boring since I’ve only been working on my Ecuador sweater. To clarify, I’m not bored. But you might be, seeing my creeping-along progress.
