Just whipped up a Quick Chocolate cake. I'll top it with a chocolate ganache later.

Will have to have Spike pick up about four small pumpkins after Halloween. They really drop in price then. Knowing him, he will tell me to buy the cans and be happy. Or he will suggest buying one big one instead of four small ones. Men! Grrrr! (Sorry guys. Not you. You know the difference between the small and big ones.)

Addie,

How about bakechef's Peter Pumkin Bars for the Church Fair!

Hint for those with freezers that need defrosting: As you remove frozen items from the freezer, replace them with bottles of water, caps loosely fastened. With less open space and more "frozen" items to keep the temperature constant, you'll have less ice build-up.

We do that often with milk cartons, especially in the summer. So often, someone is having a party and need ice to put in a tub to keep the beverages cold. It's a lot cheaper than buying bags of ice.

SO just baked a batch of banana nut muffins using Audeo's recipe. They are fantastic. I had five for breakfast.

Just as a reminder, a loaf pan is not big enough for this recipe. You need a loaf pan plus one or two mini pans. It will also make 30 regular-sized muffins.

Or maybe 2 smaller loaf pans. I have 3 sizes.

One 4.5"x8" loaf pan plus two minis OR one 5"x9" loaf pan plus one mini. Or a bunch of minis.
