Quick tip for pumpkin eaters!

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!
