Pumpkin Mania!

If it isn’t obvious, I bought a can of pumpkin that I had no idea what to do with.  I also had a bunch of other ingredients in my house, it turns out, that I didn’t know what to do with.  So, I baked!

Yesterday I started my paleo-ish pumpkin kitchen experience with pumpkin banana muffins.  Update: they’re all gone.

Today, I still had pumpkin leftover, so I decided to make these pumpkin-sugar-chocolate-chip cookies to bring on my picnic with my family tomorrow at the Apple Orchard, since they already ate all the muffins.  How gay!   Half with chocolate chips, half without.  Guess which were better.   No really, guess.  I dare you.  Did you guess with? You sucker…. you’re right.  WITH!

Then, I STILL had pumpkin left.  So I made THESE cookies.

Except I might have been getting a little pumpkin high by this point so in making this third batch of cookies for the night,  I accidentally MAY have doubled the vanilla and the baking soda, and had too little pumpkin.   Whoops.  For some reason mine didn’t turn out like the ones from the recipe (above)…and instead looked like this:

I’m pretty sure there was something wrong with my camera lens.

No matter.  After the old taste test/quality control, I determine: they got foo’d!   Here’s what my family ate right up when the cookies got transported to the picnic site:

Nothing says fall like a pile of cookie crumbles on a napkin!

Nothing says fall like a pile of cookie crumbles on a napkin! YUM!

 

Also, I had cooked up this rotten old peach in some coconut oil and cinnamon as a side.

Looks pretty good, right!?

Pint-Sized Paleo

Seriously, I would sit and eat goldfish and oreos all day if I had it in my house. (Well pre-paleo I would have) But if it's not good for me, how on earth is it good for my baby?!?! So now, we are living a paleo / primal lifestyle, on a budget, with a baby!
