Theme Thursday - How to Bake Pumpkin Muffins...

GET A MIX!

Seriously, some days in the kitchen with Harrison can be a challenge, so when he told me it was "time to make pumpkin muffins!" the other evening, I immediately thought I have a mix! And there is still the opportunity to break eggs and measure oil and water - and, of course, turn on the mixer.

We'll create them from scratch another day.


Harrison ran into the kitchen saying "There's the Super-Duper Pumpkin Muffin Maker!"

Meet the Super-Duper Pumpkin Muffin Maker.

He's getting geared up and feeling the egg-love!

When all ingredients are added, it's time to turn it on.

And make sure all is mixing smoothly.

Off to the oven!

Mmm, nice and warm to eat!

He gives them his approval.

Trader Joe's had a GREAT pumpkin mix that tastes great and makes it easy to bake with Harrison; but we're not done! We'll be baking from scratch soon!

It's pumpkin season, I love pumpkin season!

What a super duper pumpkin maker assistant! :) Kids do love to crack those eggs, don't they?? Love these shots of little Harry - great food photography, too. I'm hungry now!

Can't go wrong with Trader Joes. :) And you are so right that with little kids mix is also the way to go because you know they want "help." LOL

Great pictures! He looks like he loves the mixer.

I cant rmember if I mentioned this before, but I love Harry's long hair. Especially in the second shot. It is SO cute on him. My husband had hair like that when he was little too. What a great series. Especially when you shot him eating the muffin at the end. :)

Ok- so girl...we seriously need to be neighbors! *We* made pumpking BREAD yesterday. My babies love it! We've almost eaten the whole loaf, already.

(I even pureed my own pumpkin. I know. over the top. but it was kinda fun!)

Holy crapeth. I'm jealous of your mixer AND of your muffins. Those look divine!

MMMM, I wish someone else in this house liked pumpkin. I am the only one who will eat it. And I can't bake a batch of pumpkin muffins just for myself. Well maybe I can...

Jaimee said...

mmmm...those look positively scrumptious! I bet they smelled amazing! I LOVE pumpkin breads! Great photos and perfect for the theme!

I am jealous of the gray/chrome Kitchen Aide.

The muffins looks tasty.

I just saw the POD racer photos and totally laughed.

YES! The TJ's mix is so very good! I stockpile it.

I also think the Kitchen Aide is the single best kitchen invention - EVER! It helps so much when baking with Super Duper Assistants!

He is so darn cute. I really can't wait to meet him - he and Addie are going to have a field day together! Soon, please?!

Super-Duper Pumpkin Muffin Maker - I love it! I'm envious of all you TJers, too...that place isn't around here. He's a great baking assistant!
