Today is Courtney's Challenge Day - this weeks challenge is to create a BAGALOPE! I was looking around for directions - and found a really cute one at Cambria Turnbow's blog. She has an AWESOME tutorial there using the TAG punch (I used her instructions!)
Be sure to check out the other Challenge Chick's creations - I see I need to link them up here on my side bar!
Tomorrow is BELLI CHALLENGE and we are doing something different this week! Be sure to stop back tomorrow to see what we are doing!
Today, I will start the cooking process. I will make my Pumpkin Cranberry Bread -
3 cups all purpose Flour
1 T. plus 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
2 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsp. salt
3 cups granulated sugar
1 (15 oz.) can Pure Pumpkin
4 large eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup orange juice or water
1 cup sweetened, dried, fresh or frozen cranberries
Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour two 9 x 5 inch loaf pans. Combine flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Combine sugar, pumpkin, eggs, vegetable oil, and orange juice in large mixer bowl; beat until just blended. Add pumpkin mixture to flour mixture; stir until moistened. Fold in cranberries. Spoon batter into prepared loaf pans. Bake for 60-65 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans on wire racks for 10 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Makes 2 loaves.
Things I am thankful for today
1. My husband's job - we are unsure as to what the future holds - but GOD knows, so today I am thankful for his job!
2. A cozy bed and my pillow. I never sleep as good without my pillow.
3. Hot water in my shower. Every day, I step into my shower - I am thankful for hot water!
Some of these things may sound silly I know, but I am so thankful for each little thing!
“Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.”
1 Thessalonians 5:18
Thank you for stopping by! Be blessed today!
