Pumpkin Muffins

Towards the end of my pregnancy  with Eli I got it into my head that the best thing to stockpile my freezer with wasn’t meals, but muffins.  While it probably would’ve been prudent of me to stockpile both, I loved having those muffins as something easy to grab and munch on all day long.  With this new pregnancy and the slew of babies that my friends have been having, I’m back to muffin mode.  This time around though, things are a little healthier, you know due to the feeding, growing and caring of both born and unborn offspring.
