that was hard work I tell you…..emptying out the pumpkins…washing the seeds…roasting the pumpkins and the seeds….pureeing the flesh….butter and salt for the seeds…bagging the puree to freeze….dd14 did the cupcakes….pumpkin cupcakes of course…delish of course…..and guess what? that was only one of them….I still have another three to do!!! not sure I want to puree them all….I’m thinking couscous tomorrow…I gave one to a dear friend today and another very dear friend is coming round tomorrow….hopefully she likes pumpkin….

Dd14 also baked an apple tart today…..she knows how to make her sisters and mama happy….


How was your weekend? Ours was quiet and productive….just the way I like them….

Salaams y hasta la vista,
