Day 6: Three Uses for Pumpkin

I love baking in the fall. Warm breads, tasty treats, the smell of cinnamon. I spent yesterday morning baking several fall treats. I love anything pumpkin. Here are three uses for canned organic pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling).

1) Ginger Pumpkin Bread with Glazed Vanilla Icing (Phillip and Sam's pick).

2) Pumpkin Cake with Honey Icing (Jeff's pick).

3) A laxative for your dog. It's true. If your dog is constipated or needs to pass an object they have swallowed (like our old Golden who would eat anything, including bars of soap), give them a can of pumpkin puree.

See? Now you know. I saved you a $145 trip to the vet!
