This past week my grandma came into town for a visit. On Tuesday night we all got together at mom and dad’s for a family dinner. I love family dinners. There is just something so relaxing about sitting around a table with people you love and chatting about life. Plus the exciting fast-approaching holidays. Commence with the Christmas list making!
I guess I should start the post with a picture of grandma and our cutie pie.
Here’s Sarah just before bedtime
She loves chomping on those fingers. Oh, you probably haven’t heard, Sarah got her first tooth last Friday! I know, our little girl is growing up so insanely fast! When I saw this picture I couldn’t help but wonder how she used to fit in my belly?!? She has gotten so big!
Before heading to bed she helped me make some yummy muffins and I’m going to share the recipe with you.
Alright, now onto the yummy reason for this post.
Super Easy Pumpkin Muffins
1 box cake mix
1 can of pumpkin
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp nutmeg
Add all the ingredients together, blend, place in muffin wrappers, bake on 350 for 18-22 minutes and then enjoy
This is what they look like when you finish
Lesson #1: Fill the muffin cups to the top. The dough is pretty heavy and doesn’t rise like your standard fluffy muffins. However, next time I’m gonna try it with white cake mix so it may turn out a little different… (funfetti was all that we had on hand). Try ‘em out and let me know what you think.
Personally I think pumpkin based foods and scents should be in our life year-round. It tastes and smells soooo good! Then again if we did that I would probably get tired of it… Pssh, not!.
