Card Table Playhouse Pattern "Sweet Shop"

Card Table Playhouse Pattern "Sweet Shop".  I have to say that I just love my card table playhouses. I love everything from creating them to watching my grandchildren play in them. This Sweet Shop is an interactive playhouse that has removable cupcakes and ice cream cones and is the perfect get-away for the littlest baker in your home. This pattern includes all the instructions you need including the patterns and a list of materials to create this Sweet Shop for endless hours of fun.

Thanksgiving Poem "GIVE THANKS"

For muddy shoes, and short little misses,
Sticky hands and chocolaty kisses.
For spilled cups of milk, and scribbled love notes,
Pets on the loose, and lost winter coats.
For long days, short nights, and little boy pranks,
There are so many reasons for us to give thanks!!

For all you health is a healthy recipe for pumpkin muffins.  Well, almost healthy I could not resist throwing in some chocolate chips!!!!

Healthy Pumpkin Muffins  

1 2/3 cup whole wheat flour (I prefer white wheat and ground fresh)
1 - 2 tbsp. flax
1 1/2 cups oatmeal
1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
In a medium size bowl,  whisk these ingredients together until well blended.
3/4 cup agave (a healthy alternative to sugar and can be found in most grocery stores)
2 large eggs
1 cup canned pumpkin
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup chocolate chips (the darker the chips the healthy the muffin)  I still like my milk chocolate!!!!
In another medium size bowl mix these wet ingredients together until well blended.  Fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients just until mixed.  Do not over stir.  Bake muffins in a 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes.
