My favorite time of year...

I finally got to make a scrumptious batch of pumpkin bread the other day. And as promised here is the recipe:
3 cups self rising flour
3-4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
3 cups sugar
4 eggs--beaten
1 cup melted marg
1/2 cup water
2 cups cooked pumpkin
1 cup pecans chopped (opt)
Sift dry ingredients in lg bowl. Make a well in the center. In smaller bowl mix all other ingredients and put into well. Mix well. Grease pans. Put into 3 loaf pans or I prefer mini loaves. Bake at 350F for about an hour for regular sized loaves, 45-50mins for mini loaves.

Also here is another fall favorite:
Instant Vanilla Chai Tea
1 cup nonfat dry milk powder
1 cup powdered non dairy creamer
1 cup french vanilla flavored powdered creamer
2 cups white sugar
1 1/2 cups unsweetened instant tea
2 tsp grd ginger
2 tsp grd cinnamon
1 tsp grd cloves
1 tsp cardamom
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp white pepper
In large bowl combine all ingredients. In a food processor blend one cup at a time until mixture is a fine powder...this step is important to prevent grainy tea.
To serve: stir 2 heaping tablespoons mixture into mug of hot water.

BOTH of these recipes make great holiday gifts!!

Also this weekend we went to the pumpkin farm. I look forward to this event every year and we always have a blast. Little hot this year, but still way fun. Here are my favorite photos:

This was grandma and grandpa's first year with us at the farm. I think they had fun. But everyone was so tired in the end. :)

Can this be done in a bunt pan

I would think it would turn out just fine in a bundt pan. Will probably need longer to bake.
