A Pitcher Full....

Today is my friend's birthday
I am meeting her at Starbuck's for a cup of coffee
...and a pitcher of happy wishes!
This is my gift for her.

I found this lovely ceramic pitcher and filled it with 
a fun kitchen apron...
and a bag of my homemade 
"Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins"!


These muffins should be the perfect touch for our "coffee party"!
Look at that yummy cream cheese filling!

Happy Birthday, Marsha!

Here is the recipe for you...

 I made some plain and some with chopped walnuts on top!

Your friend will be blessed today by your sweet gift an fellowship. Those muffin look so yummy. I am printing the recipe. I was going to make pumpkin bread, but now it will be these muffins.
Have a great day.
Thanks also for your sweet comments on my blog. You have been a blessing to me.

I am going to have to try these, and I already have a friend in mind. I love how the cream cheese filling just happened to make that little "heart" shape too. :)

Thank you for the recipe.
