Missy, here. I had this great plan to bring you this wonderful recipe I discovered. But alas, my helpful husband put the butter back in the fridge (the butter that was supposed to be room temp and softened)! When I went to make the muffins, that butter was cold and hard as a brick, plus I HAD A BASEBALL GAME TO WATCH!!
And yes, the Giants and our nephew, Buster Posey, won game 2 of the World Series! Buster made an outstanding tag at home plate. I inserted it here just in case you wanted to watch. :)
Blanco and Scutaro made amazing throws, and Buster (#28) made the tag. For those who know about his terrible injury from last year, I have to tell you that my heart stops every time I watch plays like this! But this one turned out nice. :)
Here's a link to check out the play. Click here. But come back!
Thanks for letting me celebrate just for a minute there. :)
Back to the food. I've learned the hard way there's no getting around letting that butter sit out to get to room temp. Microwaving it just doesn't work.
I grabbed a new mix that I bought yesterday. I thought it looked good and wanted to try it. Libby's Pumpkin Bread Kit.
It was easy as pie to make. Well, not really pie. But you know what I mean. :)
Just follow the directions. Mix up wet ingredients. Add the dry mix. (You'll need 4 eggs and oil on hand.)
We wanted the pumpkin bread to bake faster so did 6 mini-loaves.
It even came with a packet of icing to drizzle on top. Yum!
Nice and moist. Very flavorful and spicy. A perfect taste of fall.
