Chai Tea and Pumpkin Muffins

A chilly, rainy afternoon calls for tea and muffins.

After gathering a few ingredients, including some pumpkin puree left over from a
"Spicy Pumpkin Hummus" recipe (yum, by the way), things are rolling in the kitchen!

A short while later, it's time to enjoy warm pumpkin muffins...

and a cup of steaming hot chai tea.

I chose the yellow floral cup and saucer for a bit of autumnal colour.

Care to join me?

  14. Oh, and I was just thinking what to make from a pumpkin. Thanks for idea!

    By the way, "chai" is how we call all kinds of tea in Russian. When I first time saw this word in English I was pretty surprised :) I thought it was Russian only, oops.

  15. Looks and smells divine. ;) All of it seems like the perfect comfort for me today. Thank you for the idea.

    Looking forward to visiting your beautiful blog.
    Much love,

  20. What a wonderful blog! It covers many things which delight me.

    I love Tchai and I have been making rather a lot of wholemeal-ish kind of muffins lately with apples, hazlenuts, whatevery tickles you fancy, thrown in. So maybe I'll try them wit pumpkin today.
