Hey guys, how was the long weekend?

I did nothing all weekend. And by nothing I mean that I decided to rewatch Jane the Virgin and somehow made it through 2 1/2 season in 3 days.

Granted, I tend to just leave it on and walk away for hours at a time but still.

I always go back to that show when I’m super stressed because it’s funny and ridiculous and I just love it.

I did escape to my favorite trail with the husky (Good Water Loop in Georgetown) because I just really needed it to not see another human for a few hours.

I listened to a couple of my favorite podcasts, fell in the mud twice, and then stood under the waterfall before doing the 3 miles back to the car in wet shoes.

It was exactly what I needed.

Pumpkin Banana Muffins!

Anyway.

I made the mistake of buying my canned pumpkin at Sam’s this year which means it’s the big cans and I end up having to make 6 pumpkin recipes every time I open one and muffins are great for that kind of thing.

Because one batch of muffins works for 3 days of breakfasts for us. That’s 3 days that I don’t have to worry about fights over who spilled the Rice Krispies on the floor.

And that makes my mornings a lot happier.

These are really, really simple and they turn out soft and moist and I love the crunch of the walnuts.

Let me know if you have any favorite pumpkin rcipes that I need to make next time I open a ginormous can! I could really use some suggestions.
