The most wonderful time of the year!
I love summer SO MUCH, but I really, really love fall + the holiday season.
And cool mornings and pumpkin!!!
Last year, I stocked up. And this is the lone can left!! Not sure what I’m going to do this year because at the bakery we get a good price on JUMBO cans of Libby’s. Might just have to hoard those instead!
Pumpkin Oats with Figs!
Some of you were asking about figs in last night’s comments. This is what they look like – these are Black Mission fresh figs
You can eat everything but the tiny stem at the top [although I’m sure you can eat that if you wanted!]. Slice ‘em up or just take a bite of the whole thing – just like a strawberry!
I made Coach’s oats with milk, water, banana, pinch of salt and a tbsp of chia seeds and then stirred 1/3 cup pumpkin in at the end of cooking along with a sprinkle of cinnamon and a pinch of ground cloves. Topped with 2 sliced fresh figs, Fig Butter from Trader Joe’s (which tastes like a fig newton!) and a drizzle of sunflower butter, the best nut butter ever.
Could it be?! That’s either a really, really strong tea or….??
Coffee! Actually coffee mixed with choffy. Would you know that yesterday I skipped my cup of tea and got a terrible caffeine headache that night. Still addicted. Insanity. I’m going to try to switch to all decaf from now on. I just can’t stand these headaches.
Mondays may be a drag back to the work week, but I always appreciate the speed of accomplishment they bring. I get responses to emails on Monday mornings and everyone is focused!
