Pumpkin in the Oven

I'll start with what you want to know baby yet!

But while my little pumpkin is incubating, I have done some pumpkin baking of my own.

First, I made pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. At the Irishman's request, I mixed white chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate chips. They were pretty good (I found the link from a link on another blog..) but not in my top 10 of cookie recipes.

This morning after Mass, I was worn out and decided to take a nap...that is until thoughts of PUMPKIN BUTTER went through my head...I made a batch for breakfast. It is yummy on toast!

Now in the oven is the recipe I am most excited about so far. Again, it was a link I found from another blog. The Pumpkin Swirl Loaf is in the oven now and smells and looks promising. I also may or may not have picked up a cookbook in the checkout line at the store today with more pumpkin recipes in it....

I would usually add a picture or two, but not today. I am off to spend some time with my husband. = ) We'll enjoy Sunday night TV while we can!

Tomorrow I head to the hospital for the BPP test and then back to the doctor, so we should know more then. Until then, there are yummy pumpkin recipes calling my name!

You are as pumpkin obsessed as I am. Right now I'm contemplating my pumpkin egg nog or my pumpkin ice cream... maybe both! :)
