Pumpkin Bread Pudding


It turns out that Smitten Kitchen has a recipe for Pumpkin Bread Pudding.  It doesn’t use Pumpkin Bread though.  It uses crusty bread, as usual, and adds pumpkin puree.  Sounds like it would be great for Thanksgiving.  Or just any regular October Friday night.  🙂  I think my son will like this.


All things pumpkin


I made my first pumpkin bread of the season.  I love pumpkins.  They are great for decorating and awesome for eating.  My family is not a big fan of pumpkin pie so I made bread instead.  My son cuts up chunks of pumpkin bread in a bowl and adds milk.  I guess he’s making his own version of pumpkin bread pudding.  Hey, there’s an idea.  I’ve also been making pumpkin smoothies for breakfast with pumpkin puree, milk, pumpkin pie spice and a wee bit of maple syrup.  Yum!  How do you like your pumpkin?

Pumpkin Spice Latte – isn’t it fall yet?


So it’s not quite fall yet.  We’ve got 11 more days.  But that’ OK.  There’s enough of a chill in the air to explain having a pumpkin spice latte.  I’ve got a fall wreath on the front door and mums on the porch.  I say, go for it!
