Yesterday I made Pumpkin muffins fairly modified (sub pumpkin pie spice, sub sugar, sub applesauce). They turned out not very sweet which would make them excellent with a good cream cheese frosting I bet. Maybe the honey would have been better than sugar? Jonah liked them (and I figured he would at least try them so I used real sugar instead of Splenda which I would have used if it was an adults only food). Anyone have a fool-proof go-to pumpkin muffin/bread recipe?
I also made Tomato Basil Parmesan Soup in the Slow Cooker. While Jonah ate breakfast I managed to throw the starter ingredients in and then I made the rue/finished the soup while he napped. I forgot to buy veg/chk broth at the grocery store so I added water and some random spices and added extra carrots instead of celery. I also almost always omit celery from recipes because I’ll use two stalks and throw the rest away (because really, who eats celery?). I used skim milk for the adult servings and way less butter for the rue. It turned out great. For Jonah, I pureed it a bit (because the carrots were still hard) and added whole milk. He loved it.
It was a good eating day for Jonah–lately those are rare.
