Here's My Sunday Bake

As I write this post, my oven is filled with raw pumpkin, happily baking away. Bug is running up and down the hall like a crazy dog. Tim's got the game on, and Wiggy is hiding from her sister.

It's a good day.

    1. Happy Sunday to you. Or maybe Monday now, and heck, have a great Tuesday, too.

      Hope you find that coffee. I'm about to brew a cuppa.

    1. After baking I peeled back the skins, let the meat rest and blitzed them to puree. Now the batch is stashed away for more fun later.

  7. Do you eat the pumpkin as a veggie, or will you be using it for pie or bread or muffins or...? :)

    Bet it smells good, though.

    1. Last weekend when I broke the other one down, I did eat that as a veggie. With butter and salt. Then butter cinnamon and brown sugar. And also, I make a pumpkin spiced apple sauce - which will go into bakes.

      But yeah, with this new batch I'll do bakes, and probably leves (soup), and stuff like that.

      How was your weekend?

  9. It sounds like a great day! I got all your messages, and I love them. It's always fun getting your emails. Who doesn't enjoy fun stuff from Wonder Woman? I've been disconnected for hours on end all weekend. Totally relaxed now. Went out for supper with my wonderful hubby, and stopped in at the bookstore that happens to be right next door to the restaurant we went to. It was a nice evening. Sipping the last of my tea as I write this, and getting ready for popcorn and a little TV. Life is good, isn't it?

    1. Yes, you got to see the pumpkin in every stage but the last. I had the cameras away by time I finished the job.

      Popcorn, TV and your hubby, and all those fun holiday posts you've been up too. Life really is good, that's for darn sure.

  11. What did you do with the Pumpkin, Pumpkin?

    Happy with the games result, hoping we keep it up and that final game could well be a real showstopper

    1. Hahaha, Pumpkin, Pumpkin. I got the chunks baked off and processed into a puree. Now the goop is resting in the fridge for some fun bakes.

      Yeah, Tim was happy to see the end game result as well. Here's hoping they keep going.

    1. Hey Suzie - last weekend I made spiced pumpkin apple sauce, among a few other goodies. So much fun that I had to do it again this week. Didn't feel it was an undertaking. But I did wish I had the camera rolling.

    1. Is it still autumn near you? We've been into winter, mixed in with weird spring days. So odd, but fun.

    1. I did a pumpkin last week and made a few things, but my favorite was pumpkin spiced applesauce.

      Do you like applesauce?
