Tag Archives: Pumpkin Coffee Cake with Brown Sugar-Pecan Streusel

It feels like a weekend!

These last two days have been relaxing and semi-productive – a nice mixture!  I haven’t had a “weekend” at home in a long time, and I haven’t had two days off in a row where I haven’t over-scheduled myself.

Ah… This has been nice!  Except it makes me sad that it’s coming to a close.  I had a nice mixture of relaxing (reading, blogging, lounging), socializing (impromptu football-watching gathering, cross-country and coffee at Caribou, coffee and coffee cake), and cleaning (just my room – not my bathroom yet!).

This morning I made a coffee cake that I read about this week – Pumpkin Coffee Cake with Brown Sugar Streusel.  I did what I usually do, which is to jump into a recipe without reading beyond the ingredients, so next time it will look different but I don’t think my goof affected the deliciousness of it!  Yummola!  Thanks Entertaining By the Bay (Troy’s friend, Maryanne) for the inspiration!  I doubled the recipe so that I can have it for breakfast all weekend long and have some “hospitality” for my parents who will be sleeping here Saturday night!  Good stuff.

Now I’d better run to get the salt for my softener… my only goal for today.  I’m hoping for a movie tonight (Argo!), so I’d better get it done!  It’s a working weekend for me, but I will be able to get to a tournament football game Saturday night! Go Mayo!  Go Gunnar!
