This has not been a very successful Sunday morning cooking session.
I decided to make some more pumpkin bread and could not find my Starbuck's recipe that DH & I enjoyed so much. I did find somebody's grandma's favorite pumpkin bread recipe. So I made that.
Well, all I can say is if that's the best that grandma ever had, I feel sorry for the poor dear.
I really did not want to throw it in the garbage. It had a nice spicey pumpkin flavor, but the texture was the pits. So I decided to crumble it all up and toast it.
After it is toasted, I will turn it into crumbs in the food processor.
I am thinking it may make a nice little graham cracker-type crust for a pumkin cheesecake. It could also be sprinkled between layers for a pumpkin trifle. I will just stick it in the freezer until I get the urge to experiment.
I made some pumpkin spiral cookies that spread too much. They tasted OK, but were way too much work.
They had to be rolled just like the pumpkin roll cake.
I took lots of detailed pictures thinking they would be wonderful and I would post the directions for everyone.The appearance/taste payoff was not worth the effort so I won't bother giving you the recipe.
I also made two meatloaves. One is for dinner tonight and the second is in the freezer. I think they turned out fine.
The oven is now set on clean and I am off to tidy up the big mess I made of the kitchen.
The pumpkin bread crumbs turned out great.
I now have a full Folgers can of them in the freezer.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
