Okay, I promise this will be my last pumpkin recipe for awhile!
I’m moving on to better things…..actually I’m just moving on to Halloween. Seeing there’s only 9 days left until the big day of costumes, decorations, candy, and trick-or-treaters, I better get on it. I have some great recipes I’ll be sharing with you that can easily be made with your kids.
Until then, enjoy this Pumpkin Honey Beer Bread on a cool, Fall day with a cup of hot tea!
This past weekend I headed outdoors with a bunch of girlfriends to attend the outdoor Bala Cranberry Festival. The weather was that of a typical Fall day – rainy and cold. Luckily for us we had packed our hats, mitts and ponchos. Our ponchos kept us warm and dry but they also came in handy when we needed to find each other in a crowd!
Bala is a small town in the heart of Muskoka, Ontario. The festival is always held on the weekend after Thanksgiving as a means to extend tourism for one more week since Bala is primarily a cottage town that is busiest in the summer months. There were tons of things to do at the festival such as marsh tours, wagon rides, a midway, and of course, plenty of food vendors. Homemade cranberry sausages, mini sugar donuts, fudge, kettle corn, jams and jellies, and of course fresh cranberries was just some of the food we came across. There was also vendors that featured hand-made goods such as purses, mitts, hats, ornaments and clothes. It took us the whole day just to see everything and we didn’t even do a marsh tour. That’s where we could have put on some hip waders and got right in there with the cranberries (next year I’m doing that for sure!).
When I returned home the next day my kids almost had this whole Pumpkin Honey Beer Bread gone. Luckily my husband stopped them and saved half the loaf for my pictures. Thanks Honey! It’s a common theme at my house now when my kids go to eat something out of the fridge. They either ask if I’ve already taken my pictures or ask my husband if it’s okay to eat it. Ah, the life of a food blogger!
