"Put the tea on, Sally."
Santa stopped by because he could smell the bread baking at the mouse-house.
This, my friends, is the BEST Pumpkin Bread ever.
Here ya go...1 cup butter, 2 1/2 cups sugar,3 large eggs. Mix together in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, 3 cups flour,1 tsp. each of cinnamon,baking powder, baking soda, cloves, and a pinch of salt. Add 1/2 tsp of nutmeg. Add dry mixture to wet mixture alternating with 2 cups of pure pumpkin. Mix well. Stir in 1 tsp. of vanilla extract. Mix well. You can make three small loaves or many muffins with this recipe. Bake at 350 for one hour for loaves. 25-30 min for muffins. Nice with pecans on top. Enjoy!
There is more snow coming.
Every night at four o'clock this group of mourning doves drop by to clean up what's under the feeders. It's almost dark by then.
I always throw a bit extra seed out there for them now.
They are so cute and pudgy.
I guess it's time for tea. "Are you hungry, Audrey?"
"One of those little pudgy guys on a sesame seed bun would do the trick.""Uh...I don't think so, Audrey."
"What do you have to do around here to get a bird thrown at ya?"
