VwaV Pumpkin Muffins and Pie Pumpkins

I’ve had a taste for pumpkin lately and everyone keeps blogging about pumpkin muffins! I decided to try the Pumpkin Muffins recipe from Vegan with a Vengeance. I made two batches – one with walnuts and one without. Both batches were great but I prefer the ones with the walnuts. I’ll definitely make them again. I made mine with fresh pumpkin I had roasted the day before.

Pie pumpkin prices are finally back in line. Last month, I kept finding pie pumpkins for $2 each. That’s ridiculous! They were probably expensive because there wasn’t a big supply of them yet. I went to the farm stand last weekend and bought these six lovely pie pumpkins for $5.50. They have several different sizes of pie pumpkins (prices vary based on size) and I went for the medium sized pie pumpkins. Oddly enough, this farm stand has the cheapest pie pumpkin prices but their full size pumpkins are expensive! At least I have to pass the other farm stand with the cheaper full size pumpkins on my way to this one.

    Oh no, snow! I was just making peace with Fall, and now Winter??! I heard Buffalo got 2 feet yesterday, but didn’t know you had gotten hit in Detroit, too!
    At least your fabulous-looking muffins will keep you toasty and cozy, maybe with some hot cider?…

    Oh! I’ve missed so many of your posts since we’ve been sick. 🙁 I love the stew you previously posted about though, it looks great!

    These muffins look really good too. I like how you roasted your own pumpkin for them! Must have made them ever better!

    Oh, I love snow. I will show my daughter this picture you posted, since she loves snow too and we don’t get any in Seattle. 🙁 Looks fun! Probably because I do not have to shovel it or plow it. Lol!

    We got hit up here in Ontario too. I spend a lot of time in the Ann Arbor/Chelsea as I have friends that live there. I’m glad to have found a blog from MI. I do most of my grocery shopping in Port Huron because I there are so many things I love( I’m american) that I can’t find in Canada. I’m not vegan, or even vegetarian, but I dont eat red meat. I’m aiming to cook at least 1 veg meal a week.

    Oh and I forgot to say, we’re big thrift shoppers/yard salers. We have found some of the most amazing things for so cheap. In fact, I bought my immersion blender at a Salvation Army in Chesterfield Township.

    Hi Randi, thanks for stopping by my blog. That’s cool you’re a thrifty shopper too. I was just in Port Huron last week and I’ve been to the Salvation Army you mentioned in New Baltimore 😀
