The pumpkin butter is in the crockpot . . just a bit too much of it I’d say. It’s already cooked down some and will cook down some more and then I’ll add more pumpkin and more sugar and then I’ll use the stick beater and mix it all up real good and then I’ll sit down with a whole loaf of bread and eat as much of it as I can possibly eat. Not really . . but maybe!
It smells so good! I meant to get some pumpkin bread made today but that didn’t happen. I’ll do it tomorrow. I thought our pumpkin bread was disappearing way too quickly. Chad is using it for sandwiches! With mayo and ham and cheese . . and with butter for a grilled cheese sandwich! What is that boy thinking?
Just to prove to you that I make more than my share of messes:
That is sugar! That is what was left in the sugar canister when I dropped it! What a mess. I’ve mopped the kitchen four times and I still find sticky spots. This would have been a great day to have one of those little hand held vacuum things. I tried to pick up as much as I could because I don’t even know how to dump our vacuum cleaner. Vince just did it a few days ago and I thought about asking him to show me how to do it but then I figured it would become another of my jobs if he showed me how to do it. But, now . . Vince is out of town til Sunday night, he has class Monday night so it will probably be Tuesday before he can dump it. Hope this sugar doesn’t attract ants (or worse) while sitting in my vacuum bucket.
Before the sugar disaster, I got all three pumpkins done. The pumpkin butter took 7 quarts plus I ended up with 9 – 15 oz. packages of pumpkin. I think my pumpkins were a good idea. Dumping the sugar . . not such a good idea! 🙁
