It’s an autumn-tastic weekend here in our little Washington Heights apartment. I’m heading to my Bestie’s apartment later tonight for dinner, and my assignment was to bring something sweet for afterwards. My solution? Some Trader Joe’s pumpkin bread! Yes, it’s a pre-made mix in a box, but the fact that you get to add eggs, oil, water, and pop it in the oven makes ya feel a little more domestic, ya know? And bonus — your house smells amazing for the afternoon.
In related news, I picked up two apartment-friendly (read: small) pumpkins this week, to do a little carving. What should we carve on them? We’re pondering an owl on one and a moustache on another, but we’re open to suggestions! Leave a comment if you have a fab idea.
And finally, I snagged a butternut squash at the market and I’ve got an itch to make a butternut squash soup from scratch. We’ll have to see how that one goes — I have a feeling it’ll either be brilliant or a complete disaster, but nothing in between. Stay tuned for The Great Butternut Squash Extravaganza of 2010.
