Pumpkin Beer Bread

Sunday was the perfect fall day. Pure sunshine and 60 degrees. Sten and I took Lucy out for a little jog and then we sat out on the porch and enjoyed the sound of neighbors raking leaves and jumping from trees into big piles below :) I can't wait until Lucy's big enough to play with the neighbors. I hope she's adventurous, and daring, and takes risks, and has tons of fun.
In the midst of fall gazing I wanted to make a pumpkin goodie. I found this recipe and it looked easy and quick and I gave it a try. It's a winner!
There aren't too many ingredients and the flavor is great. I wish it were a little more pumpkin-y, but we loved it still.

3 c flour
1 tbsp Baking Powder
1 tsp salt
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
3 tbsp honey
1 c pumpkin purée
1 12oz beer

Combine flour, BP, salt, spice, honey and pumpkin. Slowly add beer and mix until incorporated. 

Preheat oven to 375. Grease a 9x5 bread pan, bake for 50-60 mins.


In other news Lucy's surgery went perfect thanks to prayers from friends and family around the world. Lucy is the luckiest girl to have so many people praying for her. We have a post op appt tomorrow and I can't wait to hear what the dr says. At that time we will also learn how to put in her contacts - yikes!! 
She was under for her surgery and so all day Tuesday she was sleepy and so snuggly. 
Love looking into her clear, cataract free eye! She's so beautiful and tough. 

With the cold fall temps emerging Sten got our fireplace to work, and as if our back room wasn't already our favorite room in the house, now it is even more so! Here's Lucy takin a snooze in front of the fireplace while listening to a baby worship music DVD from our friend Erin. Doesn't this just look like perfection?

Love, erica


  1. The pumpkin beer bread looks delicious!
    I'm so glad Lucy's surgery was fine. Putting in contacts does not sound easy, so I hope that's going well!
