I just realized that Thanksgiving is next week! I really thought it was about two weeks away. Looks like I need to start getting my butt in gear with Christmas gifts. Here are some new items I've added to my shop to help make your gifts a little more festive.
On Sunday, Brett and I were tourists for a day and walked across the Brooklyn Bridge and then worked our way to the Dumbo Flea. I also started a couple new projects which you can see in the last photo. To finish off a great weekend we bought and watched my new favorite movie UP. Hope you had a nice weekend!
Last night I made my Moms famous pumpkin bread. I had quite the sweet tooth so I added a little bit of Haagen Daaz Vanilla Ice cream on top. So good.
Here's the recipe:
3 cups sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs lightly beaten
3 1/2 cups flour
2 tspn salt
2 tspn baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon
1/2 tsp cloves
2/3 cup of water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour 2 9x5 loaf pans. Stir sugar, oil, eggs and pumpkin together in a large bowl. Combine all dry ingredients in separate large bowl. Combine both bowls and add water. Divide into 2 pans. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes until done. Let stand for 10 minutes and remove from pan.
New York had a lot going on this weekend. Halloween, the Yankees and the NYC Marathon. Since the runners pass two blocks away from my Brooklyn apartment, I was able to watch and cheer them on. It's always really inspiring and makes me want to run another marathon. Hmmm. Hope your weekend was nice!
