Starting to get chilly outside, isn't it? Me and my sweet girl were freezing our A.. off during Trick or Treating on Sunday but we manage to get a big bag full of sweets just around the block! She wanted to go as a Princess, Again, second year in a row...What do you want me to do, she just love girly stuff might as well enjoy it now because it won't last too long right? In a couple of years she will be dressing up like a Sexy Vampire Vixen sucking our blood for money or just for the fun of it...
Just kidding! She will never dress up like that, ( well according to her dad...!) freezing her butt like theses teenage girls that we saw dress up like trash cheerleaders from hell...asking for candy at almost 17 years old. No age limit to like the sweets, I get it, but good lord, put some leggings on for god sake! You think I'm prude or getting old or completely out of my mind and really old fashion???? Maybe all of the above but seriously, I'm afraid ....Will I be able to avoid that phase with my little princess? They grow up so fast, knowing stuff too young, wanting to be an adult way before your body is ready or your mind for that matter. Getting them out of trouble in our time will be hard, I must say...Having headaches just to think about it! Anyhow, you are right, this is a long time before it will hit our roof but I see this as a retirement funds;
YOU HAVE TO PREPARE YOURSELF IN ADVANCE!!!
So, what do we do after Halloween and we are stuck with a big fat pumpkin? Well, I'll tell you:
From the Kind Diet by Alicia Silverstone
- 5 cups cooked pumpkins (fresh is best but canned will do)
- 2 cups maple sugar
- 2 eggs replacer (I use 6 tablespoons of water with 2tbs of flaxseeds pureed)
- 1 cup almond milk
- 3/4cup safflower oil ( I use canola instead)
- 1 ts vanilla extract
- 4 cups spelt flour
- 3 ts baking soda
- 3 ts baking soda
- 1 tbs ground cinnamon
- 3/4 cup grain-sweetened nondairy chocolate chips
- 1 cup whole macadamia nuts ( I use walnuts instead)
Reserved some of the last 2 ingredients to sparkle on top of your 2 loaf pans
Directions: Preheat oven to 350 F. Oil 2 loaf pans 9x5 inches
Combine the pumpkin puree, eggs, milk, oil and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl. In a separate bowl,combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and most of the chocolate chips and nuts if reserving some to sprinkle on top. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients until just combined. Fill the prepared pans with batter. Top with the reserved chocolate and nuts. Bake for 45-60 minutes or until the top springs back when pressed with finger. Let the loaves cool in the pans for a few minutes and then to a baking racks to cool completely. Enjoy!
Malik was my first recipe tester, He was not harm in this experiment I swear! But the picture tell it all:

Do you think that the drivers will see me in this outfit?
