Hit Whole Foods at 8 AM, unpacked and then took the big guys to their 9:30 piano lessons. Dropped them off and ran to get a manicure.
Came home and my husband took the baby to pick up his mom and visit his grandma. I cleaned and baked until 1:30 when I had to take my middle guy to a birthday party.
Got home and the big boys helped me make spinach and fresh tomato lasagna for their dinner. They also randomly asked if I could make them pumpkin pie the other day. We only do dessert on Sunday so I decided to surprise them with a recipe I found in this month's Taste of Home Magazine called Marshmallow Pumpkin Pie.
As for the rest of my baking. I have a jar of jam in my fridge that hasn't moved - my kids don't like PB&J (can't blame them - I hate it too!). Since I usually bake a treat for their after school snack I googled "banana jam bread" just to see if there was such a thing. Sure enough I found a recipe for Banana Jam Bread. I threw in chocolate chips for good measure.
Also when I made the pumpkin pie I had leftover pumpkin so made two more loaves for Easy One Bowl Pumpkin Bread.

My freezer is now stocked with 3 loaves so I can take a week or two off from baking!
