Pumpkin Muffins and Meteors

I got a few more e mails from folks still stuck with pumpkin. Yeah, I know. I can't face another pie, either.

Here's another goodie. Maybe it isn't right for breakfast with a cup of tea. Then again, maybe it is.


grease (or paper line) 12 medium-sized muffin cups
preheat oven to 400º
bake 20 min.

in a large bowl combine
1 1/2 Cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 Cup brown sugar
mix in well
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup chocolate chips
in another bowl blend thoroughly
1 egg, beaten
3/4 Cup milk
1/4 Cup oil
1/2 cooked pumpkin
add to dry ingredients all at once
stir until moistened
spoon into prepared cups

Pack a few muffins and a thermos of hot coffee and go out to watch the Taurids meteor shower. It's happening now. You don't need anything special like binoculars or telescopes. Just dress warmly and go to a dark location. Then look up... look way up.

Ain't nature grand!

Have a great day. How can you miss - you're in Winnipeg!
