Kindred Spirits

And the costume winner is... Kelly's horse!
James Bond.

A couple of tricks... a few too many treats... and Halloween's fun festivities are over for another year.

Wish 10/31 could always land on a Saturday. That had everyone in the mood for a devilish good time.

So, that's it? The party's over? Not just yet...

If you have an ounce of energy left after this very fun weekend, here's a yummy way to make use of those pumpkins...

Pumpkin Bread Recipe
  • 1.5 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 cup pumpkin purée
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. allspice
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Combine flour, salt, sugar and baking soda. Separately, combine pumpkin purée, oil, eggs, 1/4 cup water, and spices. Stir all ingredients together. Last but not least, stir in those yummy walnuts. Bake in a bread pan at 350 for about an hour.
* This recipe makes a tasty mini-muffin, too.

That horse is all dressed up , with nowhere to go. I can see why the horse won the best costume because "everybody's crazy about a sharpdressed" horse.(ZZtop, I am showing my age here.)
I will have to try this recipe, it looks tasty. Thanks for sharing!

Sounds yummy thanks for sharing. (I make a huge 'Spirited' Pumpkin Bourbon Pound Cake yesterday)

It is a tasty recipe. However! Joey's Bourbon Pound Cake sounds way better. Maybe we could talk her into sharing...
