Quick tip: add a tablespoon of canned pumpkin to applesauce, sprinkle a little cinnamon sugar on top, and, ta-da! A vegetable spiked concoction that children will eat.
One tablespoon of pumpkin provides 35% of your daily Vitamin A.
Second tip: read your recipes carefully. I occasionally make pumpkin bread, muffins, or cookies, and almost every recipe, without fail, has called for less than a can of pumpkin. Which is why tip #1 was born. However, last night when I decided to make pumpkin bread for breakfast (thinking ahead: rare for me!), I neglected to read the recipe before putting pumpkin in the girls' applesauce with dinner.
Hungry Girl 1-2-3's recipe for Perfect Pumpkin Bread is, of course, the exception. She calls for 1 whole can of pumpkin.
So, no pumpkin bread today...but maybe pumpkin cookies later!
