pumpkin muffins

so today i will be feasting with michael on goodies we bought from the shaker square farmer's market yesterday.  we already made the sun choke soup, but he is making a roast of some sort today and i am to make a brussels sprouts salad.  i also was in charge of dessert and because the meal is already so heavy i decided to make pumpkin muffins.  although to be honest i had pumpkin i just needed to use up.  are you sick of pumpkin flavored baked goods yet?  i know i have posted quite a few pumpkin dishes so far, and i don't plan on stopping anytime soon.  i haven't made pumpkin rolls yet and it wouldn't be thanksgiving without one.  i was watching boy meets grill this morning too and bobby flay's pastry chef had made an awesome pumpkin bread in a pumpkin custard with a caramel apple glaze or sauce.  i would like to try my own version of this dish as well!  but back to today's pumpkin dessert, i saw this recipe in my reader a few days ago and thought it would be an excellent way to use up my pumpkin.  cupcake rehab is a pretty funny and cute blog so you should check it out if you have some extra time on your hands.  i would also recommend the recipe, although my muffins were done in 18 minutes and i think the muffin topping could have used a tad more butter or a little less flour.  as usual i used about half the amount of powdered sugar called for in the icing as well.
