I’m loving this cool weather. I think fall is my favorite time of the year because there’s lots of good food to enjoy. I hope you enjoy these this week.

2 cups pumpkin

1 cup chopped nuts

Beat together sugar, oil, eggs, sift flour, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg, baking soda and baking powder. Add dry ingredients with water, beating after each addition. Add pumpkin, nuts and stir well. Pour into greased loaf pan, and bake 350 for 90 minutes.


½ cup brown sugar

2 t cornstarch

15-1/4 oz. can pineapple chunks (save syrup)

1 cup water

2 t vinegar

1 green pepper cut into strips

1-1/2 to 2 cups cubed ham

Don’t forget to check your local farmer’s market. They still have good things to eat. Like I always say, live, laugh, love and spend time with family and friends. God bless you all.
