Tuesday's Chit Chat!

A new scent for the home--Autumn Scented , pumpkin spice. I also have an apple and cinnamon spray, and a warm apple pie candle!

Fall leaves trim my home.

Where do I find a GREEN pumpkin??? I want one:) I just think this is the cutest pumpkin.

My fall Taste of Home magazines and Better Homes and Garden. I can't stop reading those, they just put you in the decorating and cooking mood!

My Fallish kitchen towel

I have two of these little fall wreaths on either side of the stairs


Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins!
(I made these last fall, and they were sooooo yummy. I am going to be making these again in the days to come. I just wanted to re-share the recipe! )
(Picture courtesy of AllRecipes)
3/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
3/4 cup canned pumpkin
1/4 cup water
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease and flour muffin pan or use paper liners.
Mix sugar, oil, eggs. Add pumpkin and water. In separate bowl mix together the baking flour, baking soda, baking powder, spices and salt.. Add wet mixture and stir in chocolate chips.
Fill muffin cups 2/3 full with batter. Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes.


Today is the first day it is supposed to cool off, it is supposed to be in the low 70's. My poor girl is home with a cold and cough. She is laying on the couch right now.

I worked really hard on the laundry yesterday, and must continue today. Tuesday is usually my shopping day, but with my daughter sick, I will have to postpone it. Not sure what dinner will be. I ran out of yeast yesterday, so I won't be baking any bread until tomorrow. There is plenty to do today though:)

I hope everyone has a wonderful Tuesday!
