Quick "Treat Day" recipes

The last Friday of each month is treat day at work.  I have a couple of old standards I enjoy bringing and was asked to share them with the crew. What an easy way to get copies to everyone!
Microwave Carmel Corn
Kathy W.

Combine in 2 quart microwave dish:
1 cup brown sugar
1 stick margarine
1/4 cup karo  syrup
1/2 teaspoon salt
Bring to boil, then cook on high for 2 minutes.
Stir in 1/2 tsp baking soda.

Put 3 quarts popped popcorn in brown grocery sack. Pour mixture over it. Roll bag shut and cook on high for 1.5 - 2 minutes. Shake bag, cook 1.5 minutes more. Spread onto cookie sheets and cool.

Pumpkin Bread
Caroline K.

3 cups flour
1 teaspoon soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons cinnamon
2 cups white sugar
2 cups pumpkin
4 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cups oil
1 cup chopped nuts

Place all dry ingredients in mixing bowl, with a spoon make deep well in center.  In well place all other ingredients. Stir carefully - just enough to dampen dry ingredients. Pour into 2 loaf pans.

Bake at 325 degrees for 55 minutes.

What a nice blog! I really enjoyed looking through your posts - looks like you are in a beautiful section of the country. I also knit a lot for my grandchildren and yes, it's a race against time to finish these projects before the kids outgrow them!
