Everybody's working for the weekend!

My First weigh in.. I lost three pounds!!!!!! Yay, only 19 more to go!

This past weekend, I got the most out of fall. James and I picked out pumpkins for us to carve and then we baked! We made cranberry pumpkin bread and honey cranberry muffins. Why cranberry? Because while we were in NH last weekend, we stopped at a precious little farm stand and bought a pint, which gave us a little more than 2cups worth of cranberries! Perfect! I got inspired and we bought the appropriate items to finish the recipes.

Now, I preferred the cranberry bread. I got the recipe off of allrecipes.com, where I usually like to get my recipes. Real people and really great recipes. You can sort them by the prep time and cost, and how easy they are to make! A great website, check it out! The honey cranberry muffins, I found on a random website. It was good, but salty.. It only called for 1 teaspoon, but it was too salty and overpowered the other flavors.

For the bread, the only additional supplies (aside from sugar, flour, etc) was a can of pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice and cranberries. It is a really nice sweet bread. Perfect for breakfast paired with a cup of coffee, while you read the paper in your pajamas, trust me, it's that good! The recipe we made, made three loaf pans worth of bread. TONS, but it's soooo yummy! We'll probably freeze one and save it for Thanksgiving or maybe even Christmas, WILD I can't believe that it's that close to the holidays!!

In addition to all these fall items, I started the re-fab of my antique bureau and started a Christmas present for my nephew. Now the present, I'm going to leave you hanging on as my sister-in-law reads my blog, and I don't want to spoil the surprise, but this is a yard sale find and is SUPER cool and I can't wait to give it and share how I re-did it.

That's all for now friends, make sure you come back soon to hear about my bureau project!

Stay tuned, stay crafty and stay cooking!
