Pumpkiny Sunday Thoughts

October is off to a good start! I made 3 things this week for Trish's Pin It and Do It Challenge.

First up was Pioneer Woman's Simple Sesame Noodles. As advertised they are simple, but delicious. I did not have the hot oil but used Sriracha sauce instead.

Next, I made Martha Stewart's Pumpkin Cupcakes. I actually made these years ago, but pinned them to my Yum! board recently. I didn't get as fancy as Martha. I just iced on the icing and let my daughter add the decorations. These are Monster Spider and Leaf Pile versions.

I made this bowl of Irish Oatmeal with Hot Buttered Cinnamon Apples this morning. It was tasty, but since I have a big sweet tooth I added more maple syrup.

So far I've only made EATS!

Would you try making any of these?

Today the fam and I took our annual pumpkin picking trip. So did everyone else. It was crazy, probably because next week is Thanksgiving. We have our pumpkins now and lots of other goodies.

The place where we bought our pumpkins is right next door to this abandoned farmhouse. It was very spooky looking so I took this photo. It's very Halloweenish!

That's my week in iphotos!


  1. Those sesame noodles sound crazy good to me right now. I'm off to pin that recipe :D LOVE the creepy looking house, spooooky!

  2. I'm such a sucker for The Pioneer Woman - now I have a recipe to move to the top of the list!

  3. Those noodles look delicious! There's a big farm in the middle of Queens that has an annual fall festival/pumpkin picking/Maize Maze. We went today and it was a lot of fun! Really made me feel like fall is here :)

  4. Love the photos-and the one of the house? Spooky! I think I have all the ingredients to make those noodles for lunch today--Yum!

  5. Lovely! I really like the look of those noodles :)

  6. Sesame noodles are so yummy! I miss noodles in general. Without gluten I am limited to rice noodles or yam noodles and unless prepared right, they turn out weird.

  7. And I was just wondering what to use sriracha in! I bought it for a recipe and haven't used it since. All of the eats look delicious but goodness that oatmeal looks good!

    Awesome picture of the house.
