Two (and a half) Ingredient Pumpkin Muffins
|November 27, 2013|
When I saw this recipe I knew I had to give it a try. I like to cook, but I'm always looking for shortcuts. It's pretty hard to get much shorter than two ingredient muffins. :)
I used Libby pure pumpkin which is pretty stiff. I wasn't going to be able to get the batter into the muffin cups unless I thinned it a bit. I added 1/2 cup of milk and they turned out great. A different brand of pumpkin may give different results.
The yield was about 15 small muffins, and they were gobbled up quickly. My daughter wanted to take some for her daycare Thanksgiving party so we made another batch with equally good results. Without eggs in the batter she even got to lick the spoon.

Here's hoping you get lots of good candy, have fun carving your pumpkin and don't forget to make some Roasted Pumpkin Seeds!

|A quick break from recipe news for a story of my boneheadedness...
So, last week I was traveling for work; flying into a small airport a long way from home for a single day's effort. Everything went well until I was getting ready to leave. I got up first thing the next morning, had a waffle at the 'free' hotel breakfast gathered up my stuff and checked my itinerary...
Then I noticed that the flight time I'd been expecting to leave was actually the time of the connecting flight. It was 7:05 and the flight I needed to catch boarded at 7:00! I was still in my hotel room!! I grabbed everything, dropped off my room key and ran to the rental car. Seven minutes to the airport, tossed the keys to the National guy and headed for the gate.
Technically they should not have let me through. But the TSA people went out of their way to find a United employee to get me a boarding pass (the gate was closed), ran my stuff through the x-ray machine and metal detector and let the plane know I was on the way.
Then I realized I'd left my own GPS in the rental car. I said something like 'oops' or 'bummer' and one of the ladies asked what the problem was. I told them, and said that I'd call National when I got home and see if they'd ship it to me. Then I got on the plane.
A few minutes later a stewardess brough me my GPS. The TSA lady had gone to the National desk and had the guy there get the GPS and brought it through the gate and up to the plane.
I don't like that there is a TSA. I don't think its mission is the right solution to air terrorism. Like most people, I resent being scrutinized; having to stand in line, having my stuff searched. But I'm going to try to remember next time I'm in an airport, next time I read a story of a ridiculous search, the next time I resent the TSA... that the people working for the TSA are doing a hard job with little compensation an very little appreciation and I'm going to remember how far out of their way these particular TSA employees went for me when they had no reason to at all. Except that they were nice people.
