No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace as I have seen in one autumnal face. – John Donne
I love pumpkin bread do you? I love having it with my morning coffee. I also enjoy adding almond butter on top. I’m so excited to share this recipe with you. I hope you try it out and please let me know if you do. Enjoy!
Set oven to 350F. Prepare two bread pans with parchment paper.
3 1/2 Cups of Flour
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp pumpkin spice powder
2 Cups Sugar

In another bowl mix sugar, eggs, pumpkin puree and oil. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix with a spatula.

Happy Saturday! I wanted to share this on the blog right away because it is the perfect pumpkin soup for Fall and also amazing to make and freeze ahead of time for your family for Thanksgiving dinner. It is so delicious and comforting. I truly hope you try it. Let name know if you try it @bestdayblogger on twitter or IG.
Here is my lovely pumpkin from my garden! How exciting right? My husband helped me chop this up and clean the seeds out. I cut it in chunks and drizzled olive oil, salt and pepper and roasted this along with a a garlic bulb in the oven for one hour at 350F.
4 Cups of Roasted Pumpkin Puree
1 Garlic bulb
1 Pack of bacon
6 cups of water
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 tsp salt
1 cube of veggie stock
1/8 tsp of thyme
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tbs bacon fat
A little olive oil to sprinkle on the pumpkin
Cut pumpkin and clean out the pumpkin seeds. Set the seeds aside for later.
Pre-heat oven to 350F.
Cut pumpkin into wedges and place them on trays with parchment paper.
Drizzle a little olive oil and sprinkle salt and pepper on the pumpkin.
Cut the top off the garlic bulb and drizzle olive oil over it with a sprinkle of salt.
Roast the pumpkin and garlic at 350F in the oven for one hour.
Take the tray out and let it cool.
Take one package of bacon, cut the bacon into pieces and fry it up in a pan. Take out bacon bits and place on paper towel. Bacon is used for garnish in the soup.
Save the bacon fat for later.
Take pumpkin and puree it. Place in bowl.
In a pot add 6 Cups of water, the roasted garlic, one veggie cube, black pepper, salt, thyme, cayenne pepper and one tablespoon of bacon fat. Add 4 cups of the pumpkin puree.
On medium heat boil soup for 20 min.
After 20 min turn off stove and puree with a hand blender to make sure there are no chunks. If you wish to do so.
Ladle soup in the bowl with bacon bits and Sliced Bacon garlic Baguette. Here is the recipe for the Baguette.
Bacon Sliced Garlic Baguette
1 garlic clove
A sprinkle of garlic salt
A sprinkle of oregano
Cut baguette in slices.
dip quickly into the bacon fat
Place on a tray with parchment paper
Sprinkle garlic salt and oregano on them
Toast in a 350F oven for 10 min or until golden brown
When they come out of the oven rub the garlic clove on them.
Garnish the Pumpkin soup with them for a delicious crunch.
ROASTED PUMPKIN SEEDS
1 1/2 cups of pumpkin seeds
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1/8 tsp salt
1 tbs bacon fat
Make sure your pumpkin seeds are dry. In a bowl add the bacon fat or olive oil and mix in the seeds. Then on a cooking sheet with parchment paper place the seeds and sprinkle with the salt and cayenne pepper. Place in the oven at 350F and bake for 30 min or until golden brown. Every oven is different. Mine took 30 min.
Happy Friday! I’m linking up with Paint Party Friday today and I’m very excited to share today’s post with you.
My family and I went to the garden centre to check out all the Autumn bouquets and flowers and we also chose little pumpkins to paint. I thought it would be a fantastic idea for my girls to get creative. The garden centre has so many beautiful flowers and arrangements this month.
This is the first time that we actually painted pumpkins! It was so much fun. Usually we do the traditional carving pumpkins but this time I said “Lets paint pumpkins!” Trying something new is fun. We decided to buy white mini pumpkins and we spent two days painting them. It was so much fun!
So that was our excursion to the Garden Centre and our painting pumpkins for two days. It was so much fun that I’m going to continue making crafts with the girls. They had so much fun and really enjoyed it. I hope you all had a lovely week my friends. Thanks so much for all your comments and for being here. Have a beautiful Friday and a beautiful weekend.
