Feminine Friday and Pumpkin Bars

1/2 cup oil                 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/3 Cup honey               1 Cup mashed cooked pumpkin
2 eggs                  3/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 Cup plus 2 Tablespoons whole wheat flour             1/3 cup chopped pecans
1 tsp. baking powder     1/3 cup chopped pecans.

combine all ingredients in bowl; mix well.

Spread in 9x13  baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes or until tests done.

Cool on wire rack.  You can eat it like this or add cream cheese frosting.

I added the cream cheese frosting....
8 0z. of cream cheese softened      1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup butter softened     1/2 cup chopped pecans
2 to 4 Tablespoons honey

Beat cream cheese and butter in mixer bowl until fluffy. Beat in honey to taste. Add vanilla and pecans; mix well. Store this in the refrigerator. This is a healthy sweet. If you are craving a sweet but are concerned about sugar, this is a great alternative.

This is my daughter and I in the kitchen getting dinner ready. My husband decided to catch us unaware and snap a few photos.

It didn't take Savanah long to strike a pose!

Boys waiting on dinner...

Bentley really tired from playing football and chasing my daughter on her roller blades. But he's on the fence.... Should he come in and miss the action? Or stay outside and play? Life is tough for him.....:)
