After my unpredictable weekend, I was back to routine with a full day at my dad’s office. It wasn’t a bad day, I just feel like I didn’t help out as much as usual. I stayed at my desk and worked on a few things. I mostly played sudoku in between assignments and then did some internet surfing before I remembered I had my book with me. The day actually went by rather quickly despite the fact that I wasn’t very busy. Since it was uneventful I guess I will just do a quick recap of my plates!
Tonight I am making another dinner using Kraft Recipe Makers. My dad told me I didn’t have to go to work tomorrow and I am rather excited because I am going to take that time to go spend time with Vinnie and try out the new lunging technique! Then I have my afternoon/evening appointments with Mary and Lori and I am going to finally meet Margaret, another girl who is in my situation. We are planning on grabbing dinner somewhere and I am feeling ready for the challenge!

Here is the recipe for the chocolate chip pumpkin muffins!
First, mix 1/2 stick butter with 1/2 to 1 cup of sugar. I used 1/2 cup because that is all we had left! The recipe my aunt gave me called for 1 cup. My muffins turned out very well, so I guess it can be a personal preference on how much sugar to use 🙂
– 2 eggs
– 1 cup pumpkin
– 1 1/3 cup flour
– 1 teaspoon baking soda
– 1 teaspoon cinnamon
– 1/2 teaspoon salt
– 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
Stir in 1 cup chocolate chips and bake at 350 for around 25 minutes, or until they look done. I made a batch of 12, but I’m sure you could alter cooking temp/time to make bigger or smaller ones.
Another thing I would like to share is a video that I stumbled upon on another blog and while it doesn’t fully relate to me and my situation, a lot of others might really relate to it. So why not jump on the opportunity to share it? Click HERE to watch!
