Challenge of the Week:

Bake a new recipe

Baking can sometimes be a relief for stress, we have found.
This week looks to be a stressful week.
Hence our challenge.
In preparation for this week, my roommate made pumpkin scones on Saturday.

Pumpkin Biscuits

I made these earlier this week:

2 c. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
3 tsp. baking powder
3 tbsp. sugar
cinnamon, ginger, cloves, allspice to taste

1/4 c. to 1/2 c. pumpkin from a can of pumpkin
1/3 c. oil
2/3 c. milk

Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
Stir together all the dryish ingredients.
Add the pumpkin.
Toss in the oil and milk.
Mix the whole thing until it is a nice thick batter-type substance.
Then drop spoonfuls onto a non-greased baking sheet.
Bake for approximately 10 minutes. Sometimes 12 minutes are better. They must look cooked and be rather brownish, you know, the way baked things always look when they are baked but not burned.

Do not eat them all in one sitting.

Challenge of the Week:

Eat more pumpkin.

How do we propose to do this?

How about pumpkin chili, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin yogurt, and pumpkin with sweet potatoes?
And maybe pumpkin bars.
And there was even a recipe we found for pumpkin/corn pudding!
