I'm glad people are insterested in pumpkin, I think my FB friends are getting weary of just seeing pumpkin pumpkin pumpkin (craft) pumpkin pumpkin from me!  Smiley

Pumpkin all the Things Week 3 - Pumpkin Latte! We went from annoyingly sticky and hot to quite crisp and cool in the space of a few days, so it's time for a warm drink...

Recipe is here

Okay, this is one of the few times I have to admit, fresh is not better. Add the step of "straining your latte" if you're using real pumpkin, unless you have an uber-blender and get it really, really smooth. Latte with strings of pumpkin is just weird. But I did strain it, and it was... okay? I like pumpkin, and I like coffee, but... honestly, I think there are better combinations out there. Not bad, and I did finish it, but... I'd rather have a mocha latte!

Oh goodness, I haven't checked in here in forever!  Sorry swap partners, I haven't forgotten about you!  Almost everything is done, unfortunately, still working on one big thing, I just... I've not been motivated to work on it lately.  Hopefully I can get it done this weekend!

I'm pretty pleased with how most everything else has turned out, I'm taking my stuff over to a friend's house to have her give it a once-over and either the thumbs up or down!

So many amazing things already, I'm slacking on commenting but I'm ... a little more than overwhelmed by swap projects at the moment.  I may have bitten off more than I can chew...  O.o   (It's also that I haven't finished my costume for October 4th, and I got a stand-up desk at work and I'm so much more tired!  Argh!  But I WILL get it all done!)

Prompt: September - Solitaire
Team: Textbook
Bonus Points: n/a
Project Name: Spider Hugs
Brief Description: Paper and colored pencils, all ex-tree products!  There's a story behind this picture, it has to do with this Facebook post:

"What do you do when you come out of the grocery store (Hen House, naturally, I'm still bitter) and see a spider scuttle under the driver's side door handle of your car? I sucked it up and just opened the door (it was a little jumping spider), but between this, the giant spider on the keyboard tray, the spider that wove a giant web while I was at Cryssoleil's in the hope of catching me as I left (I went out through the garage because she spotted it and saved me), and the car full of baby spiders... I'm beginning to think they have something against me."

Cryssoleil replied that "Maybe they love you and can't resist showing you how much they wanna be with you." ...and this picture was born...

Prompt: September - Mob: Game of Life
Team: Textbook
Bonus Points: UFO!
Project Name: Spider Hugs
Brief Description:  I love these shopping bags, but I hate making them.  They take a freakishly long time for how easy they are, and I always get partway through and just can't finish them.  Well, I was sewing and I told myself I had to get a few done (there are still ... four? five? in various stares of being done) and after a few hours I'd finished two big ones and a little one to carry them in when I go to the grocery store (a shopping bag bag?).

Okay, I caved, and sent in my Q.  It's only a little swap, and I'll have a few days after the IYP send-out if push comes to shove...  O.o

I remember the Cryptozoology swap!  I got the most awesome Wolpertinger head from burstofpanties: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/272045633716056413/

I'm certainly up for another round, I could even organize it if you need someone, but not until early October or later.

Okay, between now and Thanksgiving I am going to PUMPKIN ALL THE THINGS.  Well, once a week.  And Pinterest has some great pumpkin recipes. 

In the first edition of Pumpkin All The Things, I picked Pumpkin Bread Pudding.... in a mug!  Now, I've not had the best luck with all of the Mug Cakes, some are okay, some are not, but this is bread pudding, and I love bread pudding. And it has caramel sauce. And ice cream. What's not to love? Not a lot, to be honest. It was easy, and worked pretty well... I combined all of it into one mug (and ate the WHOLE THING!) so I cooked it a little longer, and it was a little ... eggier? than I usually like my bread pudding (I don't measure when I make it, but I think my milk to egg ratio is different) but it was still good (and, yes, tasted very much like pumpkin pie). The worst thing, though? I now know I am but minutes away from bread pudding at any time...



Pumpkin all the Things Week 2 - early in the week, this week, because I wanted to take advantage of what is (HOPEFULLY) the last hot, icky day of the year to make a pumpkin shake! This was sort of the recipe I used but I substituted regular ice cream for the reduced-fat and we only have whole milk in our house. Also, it wasn't canned pumpkin, so there was a bit more texture. But overall? Yeah, tasted like a cold, ice-creamy pumpkin pie. Not half bad!
