Chinese Chicken Fried Rice II
Fried rice made easy. I always have plenty left over rice in my house so I fix this in a big electric skillet. I cut my chicken into strips rather than chopping. I would normally put in a medley of frozen Asian veggies but I didn't have any on hand. I grabbed a steamer bag of broccoli, steamed them and threw them in the rice. I also used olive oil and sesame seed oil instead of vegetable oil. My son loved this.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread
This is more pound cake then it is bread. That being said, I looked up bread, but I think I was really looking for a pound cake. This was fantastic. Many variations. My favorite for sharing at events is using mini muffin pans (12 mins.), poking a hole in the top and conjuring up a cinnamon/sugar/butter mixture and syringing or basting it into the core. The mini muffin's go a longer way. This is also good as a small loaf. Same deal with cinnamon concoction pumped to the center. My changes were: 2c fresh pumpkin puree; 4 eggs; 1/2c vegetable oil; 1/2c butter or applesauce; 2/3c water; 2c brown sugar; 3 1/2c all-purpose flour; 2 tsp baking soda; 1 1/2 tsp salt; 1 tsp cinnamon; 1 tsp nutmeg; 1/2 tsp cloves; 1/4 tsp ginger; 1/4 tsp pumpkin spice; 1c chopped walnuts; splash of vanilla extract. - No matter what size you choose, do your toothpick test and you should be fine. - Make sure you grease and flour whatever pans you use. - Sift together all the dry stuff. If you ice it, try a glaze. Comes out much like Starbucks slices. If you use cinnamon/sugar/butter mixture, serve it fresh out of the oven.
