Pre-test Pumpkin Patch...and Muffins
Just wanted to share some quick pictures with you from the pumpkin patch and a quick muffin recipe. While D was mowing his yard, I occupied K. I offered to make cookies or muffins (secretly hoping she'd say cookies)...but she chose muffins.
here. I did change it slightly and should have cooked them for longer, but K still enjoyed it after she successfully ate all of her salmon and corn and bites of carrot and cauliflower. We added a few chocolate chips on top.
