~This is the kind of "pumpkin" we have here in Colombia. This is what I have used for anything pumpkin I have made so far this Fall. I think it is from the same pumpkin family, just does not have as strong of a taste as our pumpkin there, but hey, it works, so I'm happy!~
~Some yummy pumpkin pies that I made trying to see if that green pumpkin would work. Thankfully it is orange inside, so that helps, and it tastes very similiar to our orange pumpkin there.~
~These are the pumpkin muffins that some anonymous person put on my blog comments a few posts down. They turned out yummy, so I'm posting the recipe. (Now whoever you are...probably wish you would have included your name. SMILE!)~

Here's my favorite pumpkin recipe:
This is actually a double batch, with a 15 ounce can of pumpkin. I often quadruple the batch using the 30 ounce can of pumpkin.
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins
Combine wet ingredients and sugar:
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups oil
1 - 15 ounce can of pumpkin
Combine dry ingredients:
3 cups flour
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tablespoon cinnamon (try pumpkin pie spice for variety)
Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients.
2 cups (or 1 - 12 ounce bag) semi-sweet chocolate chips (use other kinds of chips for variety -- especially the cinnamon chips).
Bake: 20-25 minutes at 375 degrees for regular sized muffins (definitely bake 25 minutes if you're taking them somewhere and sharing 'cause they'll get squishy. Bake 15 minutes for mini muffins.
Yeild: At least two dozen regular sized muffins.
This recipe also works well with whole wheat and olive oil.
Also - warning: These muffins WILL stain any tea towel or pretty cloth basket liner that you have. So, be careful. I usually use paper towels if I really need a liner. Or, buy brown cloth napkins or a dark tea towel so the stains won't show. :) Enjoy. I hope you like them as much as we do.

~Elijah cannot sit up by himself yet, but does NOT like to lay down unless he is sleeping, so Kimberly propped him up so he could see his toys.~
~Our Thursday night service. These people are happy with the new chairs too. Our family also bought those small rugs that you see under the chairs (we bought them for both churches) to kneel on, so all of our people don't have to kneel on the COLD, hard, and RED Waxed floor. (The churches here use them so that a person doesn't get the RED WAX all over their clothes.) I had Sarah go to the back and take this picture. I was sitting down on the front row holding Elijah, so you cannot see us.~
We had a good but VERY BUSY day on Sunday...I'll post some pics soon.
