pumpkin muffins...mmm...

I just finished enjoying some warm, fresh, right out of the oven Pumpkin Muffins...mmmm...!  I am on a mission to keep getting organized as much as I can with the high task of getting Braveheart back into a learning routine, in addition to assisting his recovery, making him healthy, plus I want to use up some of my 'stash' that has accumulated in my deep freezer and pantry.  By the way, I just dropped off some blood for his labs this very morning.

One thing that we still hadn't used up were those zip lock bags of  home grown pumpkin that I  had cooked and frozen about two years ago.  I have been planning on making muffins.  Today was the day. I used some of the fresh ground white wheat I had ground and stuck in the freezer last year.  OH MY GOODNESS!  So good, soft, moist, delicious!!!  If you haven't started grinding your own grains, then you may want to consider it soon because it is soooo good.  Well, the boy is done with his math, I must return to my 'real' duties.  Love it though and now I have some healthy snacks for the kids when they get home! Yum! Maybe I can get back to my poor office room that is calling my name...but now I have gotten a brief bit of writing out which I thoroughly enjoy..have a great week!

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:
MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.
