I made those Chocolate Pumpkin "muffins" on Thursday. I'm not a religious person, but I swear I saw the sweet baby Jesus when I tried them. Holy moly, they are the best EVER. However, they are not muffins, they are little mini cakes in muffin cups :lmao:

DH loves them, PrincessM is WILD about them. I'm definitely going to be making more! Thanks for the recipe!

Hey - glad you guys love them SO much - aren't they delish?

I'll have to poke through my recent posts to find the daily grind thread I used to post the recipe - I can't remember which day that was. (The way my head and neck have been feeling for the past few days after the car crash, sometimes I can't remember WHO I AM! Just kidding...but barely. :sick:)

I'll try to find it and repost for you, Caroline.

FROM THE DAILY GRIND THREAD FROM 9/21/09:

Calanniebu said it was a WeightWatchers recipe - I made a couple of tinkerings with it - so easy and the kids have NO idea these are healthy-ish.

1 15oz. can of pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
1 box of chocolate cake mix (anything - choc fudge, devils food, etc.)
1 egg
Handful of chocolate chips

Mix all ingredients together - batter will be VERY stiff - I use my KitchenAid mixer. In our house, this makes exactly 12 very large muffins. (So, they're probably kinda more than the 2 points suggested by WW )

Bake at 350 for 20 min. That's it!

They taste really good and chocolatey - the kids scarf them down. Sorry, morgansmom - they don't taste pumpkiny at all. (I make double batches in the hope *some* end up in the freezer for school day breakfasts - but they don't last that long around here!) And they're nice to share with friends. I think TinkerBean is enjoying one of hers today - is it good?Glad you like the recipe/muffins!

Apparently, it is an "oldie but goodie" I had never heard of, until Calanniebu generously brought a batch of these to a summer crop and I ate an embarrassing number of them (as did Z2H)!!! If anyone else tinkers with the recipe and finds even more yummy flavor - be sure to let us all know...

Huge tray? I don't know about a huge tray. How about 12 good sized muffins or 24 smaller ones? Oooh, I could do some bite-sized ones. I'll probably do some with and some without the chocolate chips.

Seriously though, Granny Birdseye loves her some chicken, and garlic, and broccoli, and corn, oh and don't forget the pasta. She is alllll about the pasta.








psssssttt, Granny really gets her food from Cousin BJ's and Sister Stop and Shop's houses. She likes to chill in the freezer section.

Pink ribbon bagels are only available at Panera in OCT, they donate a part of the proceeds to a local Breast Cancer center. They have cherries and some sweet bit of something (vanilla maybe) and are shaped like a ribbon. Very yummy.

OK headed back to school for the above mentioned incident. Will share more details later.

Does that pit in my back yard need to get bigger? I wonder if people are going to question the disappearance of all these people. ;);)pirate::rotfl2:

Yep, it needs to be a lot bigger!!!

OK kids it's story time so gather round now.

OK so most of you know I drive my kids to school. Well, we have drop off at the cafeteria doors which are the first set of doors you come to when you come up the driveway. Today it was pouring, like cats, dogs, horses and cows pouring. My friend (broken leg mom, BLM) had gotten one kid out of the car(he took off in the rain) and was going back for the umbrella for the other 2. In the mean time Dr. Mom was walking her DD to the door with an umbrella and the bell rang.
Dr Mom said to the teacher that releases the drop off kids from the cafeteria "Broken leg mom was just running back to the car to get the umbrella and the other 2 kids". Teacher said, "well that's just to bad" and slammed the door in the face of my 3, Dr. Mom and about 6 other kids, not including BLM's kids!!!! I was PO'ed beyond recognition!!!!!! The rule is supposed to be, when the bell rings you release the kids, then go to shut the door. If there are children actively being unloaded then you wait for them to get inside. Things were running a little behind because of the rain, I mean come on, cut the kids some slack. Let them gather their belongings before they open the door and get everything soaked. She was just being a Witch!!

Now this comes on the heels of pick up earlier this week. They have changed things for pick up and now have a table across the hallway with a mean hateful sign on it so we can't walk down the hall during pick up (I have my own issues with that but whatever). Anyway Mrs. B was doing pick up because the librarian went home sick. Mrs B never does pick up, she has other duties but she was filling in until Trampy Mom/teachers aide could get there. Well, BLM was in the middle of signing her kids out when Trampy mom/teachers aide comes running down the hallway screaming at Mrs B and literally snatches the table out from under BLM (mid signature) to move the table then reprimands Mrs B.
BLM was shocked!!! So shocked she was speechless, which is soooo not like her. If it were me I'd have been like, "Back the heck(only not such a nice word) up. You will NOT snatch the table up on me like that."
So I sign my kids out and I'm glaring at trampy mom and I'm talking very loudly to BLM about how incredibly rude that was, and unacceptable, and how she should never, ever talk to MY Mrs B that way. I was ticked!!!!!!!!!

So BLM and I had a nice meeting today with the principal about the behaviors and attitude from the teachers aides. They are all so mean and hateful!!! And I've had it!!!! I'll let you know how it gets resolved.


That and PTO is trying to do a school wide Thanksgiving feast for the kids and we are meeting resistance from the teachers. They are like, feed the homeless, donate the food. OK, we can still do that but the homeless are hungry 364 other days of the year. How about we feed them when everyone else forgets. How about we forgo the teacher appreciation luncheon and donate that food instead.
We have 3 families struggling to feed their kids and I think that this is really important to show these kids a sense of unity and support without putting them in the spotlight. We already do a food drive every year so instead of taking the food to the shelter in the next town, we are going to split that up amongst the 3 families instead. No one will ever know where the food went because I always take it to the places.


Argh!!! Ok, vent of the day is over!

I had to restrain myself til I could calm down. The one that slammed the door is the middle school aide, the one with the BIG Girls that doesn't wear a bra, ever, with tank tops. :scared1:

Trampy mom is a piece of work! She has a rather hot looking husband but they are polar opposites. Last year it was the boy toy sub (her BFF in high school). Well I finally had to say something to the principal because other parents were coming up to me asking what was going on. Totally unprofessional in a town this size. Now her new favorite is the middle school teacher who was MY teacher 20 years ago!!!!!
We used to get along but once she started working there, her whole attitude changed.

The last part of the food thing, is we want to start a food pantry in town and have that be the 8th grade legacy. They will do their community service there. Hopefully we can get it to work. Knock on wood.

Awe, I would have loved to be in your school, or had you in my building. the kids would just love you!
I really hate to teacher bash but my God, some of them are just clueless about the world around them. You, of all people, know what it's like to have a student come to school hungry. Why on earth would they think it's ok to ignore that fact to feed people in another community. I mean yes, they need food too but charity begins at home and you can't help others unless you help yourself.

And not to gloat or anything but I'm doing all of this with DH out of work! My current list is as follows:
1 parent with stage 3 breast cancer and a mastoid in her brain (doing food and kid pick up rotation)
1 teacher with stage 3 breast cancer who had her ovaries removed yesterday and a second mastectomy and reconstruction in November (doing food and kid pick up rotation)
1 parent who has for some unknown reason lost all feeling in her legs (doing food, getting permits, supplies, and labor for a ramp)
3 families with no food
1 8th grader who's father lost his job this week (not including my DH)
and I need to raise money for 10 field trips, and $25,000 for the 8th grade.

Oh and I need to save the world, clean my house (yeah right!), and make my own family happy.

We have a great PTO this year, we finally weeded out the parents that were just there to spy on the teachers but I just can't get past the rift. Sometimes I really wonder why I do it, why any of us do it. But I have to keep saying to myself it's for the kids, it's for the kids. Today was funny, one of the dad's was at cross country and he's like you know the name of every kid on the Cross Country team all 35 of them (grades 4 -8), I'm like I see them every day, I would lay down and die for any one of them. They are all my kids, even the trouble makers.

TinkerBean and I have a saying about this..."REAL friends don't have to clean up for each other." With kids on the autism spectrum, we both have our daily general organization systems in place, but the messy clutter that gets out of hand so quickly and then seems to explode all over - sheesh!

Our house is like the size of a postage stamp, and with 6 people making messes it just explodes, daily. But hopefully in the spring we can do the first phase of an addition that will give DS13 his own room and DH a much needed office.

Well, since TinkerBean is *OBVIOUSLY* lost and wandering around our city with some muffins for me...:lmao: Gee, I hope she turns up soon...

I just had to make a double batch of my own - they're in the oven now. Calanniebu is simply amazed at the reaction of everyone to these muffins...remember, we all have her to blame....er...thank...for these yummy little devils!

Good idea to keep it on hand. I had a hard time finding the pumpkin a few weeks ago. Think I'll go and buy some more.

SOOOOO ticked off at DH!! He does the grocery shopping now (since I went full time) and TOTALLY didn't get the chocolate cake mix at the market today!! He said I told him I would use the yellow cake mix...yeah, I said that but also said I NEED the chocolate cake mix...sheesh!!!!!

I did make crustless punkin pie for dessert tonight though...

I'm makin these muffins though!! Gonna have to go to the store myself and get a box of chocolate mix...

Once DH tastes them, he is gonna bring in the choc mix every trip...I just know it! :love:

AND he will make it sound like he is the one that thought of it in the first place :lmao:
