Party Time

My close friend here in town got married last week and here are a few shots of the wedding and reception. Only close friends go to the wedding but everyone and their brother goes to the reception. No matter where you go the same exact food is always served. Sometimes if we are lucky we get to eat chocolate/durian ice cream. Alethia is wearing the traditional dress that Kim's mom made for her a while back.

Fake Fall

When the weather where you are is nothing even remotely close to fall (The only leaves we have that change color go from green to dead brown because of the heat.) at least I can still bake as if it were fall. I made these yummy pumpkin muffins the other day. I don't know why buy there were so so yummy. I ate two almost immediately. I may even go an have another one right now. I used peanut butter chips instead of butterscotch because that is what I had on hand. For the pumpkin I had some left over in the freezer from where I had baked a whole pumpkin in the oven and then just mashed it with a fork. I got the recipe of another bloggers site - (sorry I can't remember where). Let me know if you try it.

Pumpkin Butterscotch Muffins
3/4 c. whole wheat flour
1 c. unbleached white flour
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. sugar
2 tsp. Pampered Chef Cinnamon Plus (or 1 tsp. cinnamon plush 1/2 tsp. ginger and 1/2 tsp. nutmeg)
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 eggs
1/2 c. melted butter
1 c. canned pumpkin
1 c. butterscotch chips
In a medium bowl, stir together flours, sugars, spices, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, butter, and pumpkin. Stir into dry mixture. Stir in butterscotch chips. Pour into greased or lined muffin tins. Bake at 350° for 17 to 20 minutes.

Meeting the Princess

We got to meet the regional representative for the Miss Indo pageant the other day. We told Alethia she was a princess but she wasn't buying it because the girl didn't have a crown or a princess dress. Asher was happy to have his picture made with her and then Alethia eventually warmed up to the idea after we had been traveling with them on the plane for about 3 hours.
