Welcome to another Tea Time Tuesday…
This week we are continuing our tradition of ALL things fall! And that tradition called for a Tea Time Tuesday Pumpkin edition. What is fall without pumpkin treats? There is just something about this time of year that we can’t resist… I am loving all the cozy family times we have been having lately, and all the homemade snacks.
The Pumpkins in the Corn by Sir Charles George Douglas Roberts
Amber and blue, the smoke behind the hill,
Where in the glow fades out the morning star,
Curtains the autumn cornfield, sloped afar,
And strikes an acrid savour on the chill.
The hilltop fence shines saffron o’er the still
Unbending ranks of bunched and bleaching corn,
And every pallid stalk is crisp with morn,
Crisp with the silver autumn morns distil.
Purple the narrowing alleys stretched between
The spectral shocks, a purple harsh and cold,
But spotted, where the gadding pumpkins run,
With bursts of blaze that startle the serene
Like sudden voices,—globes of orange bold,
Elate to mimic the unrisen sun.
This week Julia chose to make pumpkin muffins for her Tea Time Tuesday Pumpkin theme. These muffins are one of our favorite fall snacks, especially to bring with us to partnership classes. To make your own pumpkin chocolate chip muffins you will need:
- 4 eggs
- 2 cups of sugar
- 1 (16 oz) can of pumpkin
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1⁄4 cups vegetable oil
- 3 cups flour
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 12 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
You can find the instructions here. These muffins are very easy to make. A lot of the time we will make a double batch because we just can’t get enough of them.
As you can see we kept our fall table decor out from last week. That didn’t stop Miss Julia from rearranging things multiple times. She informed me that we need to buy some new tablecloths so she has more options in the future (ha).
Thank you for joining us for Tea Time Tuesday Pumpkin Edition.
