Tuesdays At The Table - Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Did everyone have a good Halloween?  I got fewer trick-or-treaters than expected (about 30 or so), but the kids were soooo cute!!!
The highlight of the day was dressing Beckett and Meadow up for Halloween.  Unfortunately, we *cough, ME, cough* couldn't find their planned costumes.  So they had to take turns sharing their back up costume - as a LEPRECHAN!!!  Good thing their grammy bought it for them when she was in Ireland a few years ago.  :-)

This week I'm sharing my pumpkin chocolate chip muffins.  So tasty!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins
4 eggs
2 cups sugar
1 (16 ounce) cans pumpkin
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups vegetable oil
3 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips

In large mixing bowl beat eggs, sugar, pumpkin, vanilla and oil until smooth. Mix dry ingredients together and mix into pumpkin mixture. Fold in chocolate chips.

Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups 3/4 full.  Bake at 400 degrees for 16-20 minutes.

What's cooking in your kitchen?

  2. First things first. Happy Halloween Meadow and Beckett! Sharing your costume is very considerate of you both. The leprechaun costume was very original and fit you perfectly :) Are you guys already done with trick or treaters? It isn't even dark here. I don't usually get many for some reason. I think it's cuz I live on a cul de sac.... but we're ready for them anyway. Thanks for visiting.

  3. well...I was going to tell you what was cooking in my house tonight...but I think I did it incorrectly...So...here's what's cooking:

    MARIE CALLENDER'S CHICKEN PICCATA....with steamer fresh flavor. It has a penne and wine lemon sauce with white meat chicken, spinach, Parmesan Cheese and capers.

    Sorry...it was a microwave meal. Does that count?

  7. If you like spicy stuff, the kimchi goes quite well with rice. A strange Halloween without SO this year. Happy Halloween...it's only 8pm here.
