THE BLOG
Not only is it Halloween today, it’s also my sweet hubby’s birthday!  He’s not much on birthdays but don’t think I didn’t pull out the jack-o-lantern birthday cup for his morning coffee!   So today is all about Drusky’s big day and pumpkins!!!!
My favorite pumpkin treat….Starbuck’s Pumpkin Spice Latte! It really is a one time thing with me because it is so rich, I’ll go back to my Grande 140′ SVL  tomorrow!

I’m also feeling a little “Martha Stewart” ish today! This cranberry stuffed pumpkin bread might be in our future!! I’ll need to do something with the left over baby pumpkins!

  • 1  (16-ounce) raisin bread loaf, cut into 1-inch cubes
