Halloween Pumpkin Muffins


Today we went for a Halloween play date at Ethan's friend's house.  We decided to make some pumpkin muffins to bring for the other children, and spent our morning baking.  Baking is such fun and it's great for Ethan's Knowledge and Understanding of the World as he sees how ingredients come together to make something.  I found the recipe for the pumpkin muffins on Southern in Law's blog and made a few adaptations based on what we had in our cupboards (we didn't have whole wheat flour so I just used plain flour for the whole amount).  I would say it was mine and Ethan's best baking work together to date!  He was so excited to help, pouring the ingredients one by one into the bowl and mixing for me.  He was talking all the time about what we were putting in and how he was 'cooking' (I think that he calls stirring 'cooking').  He even helped to scoop the mixture into the pumpkin shaped tray.  The muffins looked really good when they came out of the oven, and I think that they tasted delicious (but I suppose that pumpkin is an acquired taste, so it may have only been Ethan and I that liked them ;)

We had lots of fun on our play date today, the 3 little ones played together really nicely with toys, and chasing and shouting after each other!  They didn't really manage to keep costumes on for very long (Ethan refused to wear his hat completely) but it was a lovely Halloween play date :)
