Down on the farm

Pumpkin Bread

So, here is the follow up to the bananas for breakfast scenario from yesterday.  As many of you know from following the blog, the boys eat a special home cooked diet which consists of ground turkey, oatmeal, yogurt and pumpkin.  Well, one of my favorite places to eat dinner out is Bob Evans.  Now that it is the fall season, Bob Evans offers pumpkin bread with the meals.  While pumpkin bread is one of my favorite holiday treats, I had plenty of dinner to eat and decided to take home leftovers (or a “doggie bag”).  So, I brought home a slice of pumpkin bread.  The bread was stored in a Ziploc baggie but that did not stop Benjamin from picking up the scent.  Of course, Henry, knowing Benny’s nose is never wrong, trotted off to follow him.  I unzipped the baggie and tore off a little piece for them to try.  After one small bite it was as though their little expressions said, “Mama, our pumpkin never tasted like this before!”  And of course, there went baby Benny into his up, down, up down.  (You’d think he was doing calisthenics.)  I gave them one more small piece apiece.  (They are on a special diet to help keep them fit and because they have digestive issues, so they really shouldn’t even have table scraps but what can I say?  I AM the weakest link.)  Fortunately, for all of us, the pumpkin bread from Bob Evans is seasonal.

They wait so nicely for their pumpkin bread - how adorable.  Most of the time my Romeo would grab it out of my hand.  Once in a while I can get him to be calmer.

Not having been on this site that long, I learned today that Henry and Benny are on special diets.  Thank goodness they have you to take care of them.



I love all things pumpkin, so I’m sad there are no Bob Evans’ in Fort Worth.  I, like Benny, can sniff out a good treat regardless of any silly ole zip lock bag!



I’ve never eaten at Bob Evans, but there was one near our office in Fla. and one of my bosses just loved to eat there.  I kept meaning to try it.  Now, I’ll have to make sure I do it during Pumpkin Bread season. lol

BTW, everybody fill your gas tanks now, while you can.  My sister in GA paid $5.50 and someone she spoke to later (don’t know where) but they had paid $7 a gal. 

Christine, good to see you are still up and running.  Do you have an emergency generator and ISP just in case? lol
