Pieces of My Weekend

The weekend was filled with baking and adventure. Friday night we made tons of homemade pizzas (sorry no pictures) and homemade pumpkin whoopie pies. I'll take a picture of those soon enough. Saturday we made homemade pumpkin butter. MMMMM.
Sunday, adventures to the Farmers Market and a homemade dinner with good friends.

Don't worry, I pulled the sticker off before we puréed!

Yummy roasted pumpkins, they sink and swim.

After delicately puréeing the beauties and adding a little spice.

Homemade chocolate covered raisins. Sadly, no one at the party liked dark chocolate, except for me. Can't seem to please the folks. : )

Delicious hot tea. The color was amazing.

My first batch of homemade oat bars. Definitely needs work, but a delicious granola I must say and tasted quite yummy in my shake this morning.

Just had to get myself in there.

Devotion for today:
Take time to be still. When you tie yourself up in an anxious knot, you are ignoring His gift of peace.

Psalm 46:10
"Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth."

Numbers 6:25-26
"The Lord make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace."


  1. I can't wait to get my hands on some pumpkins and do some baking! Your granola bars look good!

  2. i have never seen roasted pumpkin like that. Do you roast the whole pumpkin? When you puree it do you use all of it?

  3. Yes! I'll post the recipe and you can take a look! It's super easy. :)
