Mourning the passing of pumpkin

I have a confession.

I love pumpkin baked goods. And, quite frankly, after all the pumpkin baked goods I've eaten this fall and winter, I'm surprised I haven't turned orange. (my husband can attest to this crazy pumpkin eating!)

It's too late now, but for future reference, the absolute BEST place to indulge in your pumpkin fantasies is at Great Harvest Bread Company. Oh. My. Goodness. Of course, Great Harvest is delicious any day of the year, (What?! You've never been? Get thee to a Great Harvest, ASAP! Located at Central and Woodlawn or 21st and Maize. Go ahead. Stop reading. You can read after you're returned and can die happy, having experienced the yummyness that is Great Harvest.) but between October and December, Great Harvest sells pumpkin scones, pumpkin muffins and pumpkin cookies. Year round though, they sell amazing breads, muffins, cookies, scones, and rolls in other great flavors.

You can visit Great Harvest Bread Company online, and read all about this great company. They buy their wheat from family owned farms, make their own flour in each bakery, and all their bread are all whole wheat.
In addition, they're very involved in their communities and like to make a point to give back. All in all, they're a great company with a great product!

However, since pumpkin season is over at Great Harvest, I'm going to share a great pumpkin recipe with you.

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread
You'll need:
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (I used a mix of all purpose and whole wheat)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 3/4 cup applesauce (or you could use canola oil, but why would you want to do that?
  • 1 cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips (or milk chocolate) (more or less to your chocolate preference)
In a bowl, combine the flour, cinnamon, salt and baking soda. In a larger bowl, beat the eggs, sugar, pumpkin and applesauce. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in chocolate chips. 
Pour into a greased 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pan. Bake at 350° for 60-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.

This bread is SO good. It's very dense and has a mild pumpkin-y flavor to it and the chocolate chips are delicious with it. And, come on, it's practically a health food! Pumpkin, applesauce, whole wheat flour, eggs? All good for you!
Enjoy :)

  10. في بعض اأحيان يقوم الكثير من أصحاب المنازل المستقلة بإنشاء أماكن نخصصة لتكون حمامات سباحة أو مسابح فوق المنزل أو فى الفناء الخاص بالمنزل أو فى الحديقة المجاورة التى تكون ملك للمنزل،لهذا فى كثير من الأحيان لا يلجئ أصحاب هذا المنزل إلي إستخدم هذا المسبح الا فى الصيف فقط وأحيانا أخري يسافرون لفترات طويلة إلي خارج البلاد ويبقى هذا المسبح بغير إستخدام أو تنظيف لفترات طويلة قد تمتد إلى العديد من السنوات، ثم بعد ذلك يروق لهم أن يستخدموه ولكن عندها تقف أمامهم أكبر عقبة ألا وهي تنظيف المسبح وبعد كل هذه المدة الذى إمتلأ فيها بالأتربة والغبار وقد تراكمت فيه الأوساخ وأوراق الشجر المتساقطة بشكل كبير وفي الكثير من الأحيان الأكياس وعلب العصير والأوراق إلى غير ذلك من القاذورات التى تكون قد ملئته. شركة تنظيف المسابح بالرياض

    إذاً فما هو الحل المثالي لحل هذه المشكله ؟
    ولك يتم إيجاد حل لهذه المشكلة فلابد من القيام بتفريغ المسبح بالكامل من الماء الموجود فيه ف حال تواجد فيه ماء، وإذا لم يكن فيه ماء فسيسهل هذا الأمر كثيراً علينا عن طريق تنظيفه من الأتربة والأوساخ والقمامة الموجودة فيه فقط بحيث لا يبق لها أي أثر وكذلك يجب أن يقوم الفريق المختص بالتنظيف بشفط جميع الأتربة التي تتواجد فيه بإستخدام المكنسة الكهربائية أو اليدوية وذلك للتأكد من المسبح خاليً تماماً من الاتربة والأوساخ والعوالق العالقة فيه، شركات تنظيف مسابح بالرياض ومن بعد ذلك يجب التأكد من خلوه من الأتربة والعوالق ثم نقوم بضخ المياه فيه مرة أخري علي أن يتم مراعاة مرور المياه بفلاتر خاصة لتقوم بعملية التصفية للمياه من جميع الشوائب والجراثيم والبكتريا الضارة التي من الممكن لها أن تتسبب في الأمراض المعدية لكل من يستعمل المسبح، ولابد من أن يتم دعك الحائط أو الجدران الخاصة بالحمام جيداً بفرشاة التنظيف المخصصة لذلك مع مراعاة أن تكون الفرشاة خشنة وذلك لكي نقوم بإخفاء أي آثار للطحالب الصغيرة التى من الممكن أن ترجع الى المياه وتتعلق بها وتتكاثر بها مرة أخري وفى وقت قصير جداً، ومن هنا كان لابد لنا من القضاء على كل أشكال الطحالب أو الريم الأخضر الذي يتسبب فى تلويث الماء بشكل كبير ويشكل خطراً على نظافة الماء وعلي صحة من يسبح فى المسبح أيضاً وتلك هى الطريقة التي يمكن بها تنظيف المسبح عادةً وبصورة تقليدية.

    أيضاً يوجد هناك العديد من الطرق الأخرى الحديثة والمتطورة والتي تمكننا من تنظيف المسبح وفيها يقوم فريق التنظيف بإستخدم آلات وأدوات حديثة خاصةً بتنظيف المسابح مثل (آلة تنظيف المسبح) وهى عبارة عن أحد المكانس المائية والتي توضع فى مياه المسبح وتقوم بشفط الطحالب والقاذورات والأوساخ وتقوم بتدوير المياه بطريقة جيدة بحيث تعيد للمياه رونقها وصفائها بعد شفط الطحالب والريم الأخضر منها ، وهذه الألة مناسبة لمن يريد تنظيف المسبح بدون تفريغ الماء منه فهذه الألة تعد هى الألة المناسبة فى هذه الحالة حيث تعمل هذه الألة على تنظيف المسبح بدون الحاجة إلى تفريغ هذا الكم الهائل من مكعبات المياه والذى يعد إسرافاً فى المياه التى سيحاسبنا الله عليها.
