I make the spinach bread in a bread machine, so I'm not sure how to do it without one, because it would probably need to a few good kneadings and some rise time, so it would be a lot of work.
As for the pumpkin butter, I use this recipe from the boards: Pumpkin Butter
You can adjust the spices to your liking. I tend to use a 28 oz can of pumpkin to make an about 3 cup batch, but I only add about 1 1/2 cups of sugar instead of the 3 that it should have. I usually use the 3 cups up in about 2 weeks since I eat it every morning, but I think the recipe says it'll keep for 4-6 weeks in the fridge.
