Crabigail had a little surgery and went on a little vacation.

We're still entertaining the Iranians, the Dow is up (so is unemployment), and the health care bill that hasn't been written is being voted on and foisted upon an America that is largely against it.

Have a muffin.


1 yellow cake mix
1 small can pumpkin
2 t. pumpkin pie spice
1/2 cup water
1 T. powdered milk
1 cup chopped pecans

Mix the cake mix, pumpkin, spice, water and milk powder until batter just comes together. Fold in chopped pecans. Fill paper muffin cups 3/4 full. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 25-30 minutes.

My low-sugar friends, feel free to use the Pillsbury half sugar/half Splenda cake mix -- it works just fine and hits the "I-just-want-something-from-the-old-days" kind of spot. (YOU know what I mean...!)
