Nothin’ like some PUMPKIN to start off a fall morning right!!
This is my hoarded can of Libby’s 100% Pure Pumpkin. Stocked on the shelves since last winter just in case the world ends in the mean time. The craving always comes before I can get to the store for more!
I made whipped banana oatmeal with about 1/3 cup pumpkin stirred in at end along with classic pumpkin pie spices (cinnamon, cloves, all spice) and some Autumn Spice granola on top! I have finished my sample bag and they are making an official batch at the bakery this afternoon. They are also making PUMPKIN OH’S!!!! My bowl was finished off with some apple butter and sunflower butter. And a cup of decaf!
M and I had a fun morning. We went for a walk with Rosie and did lots of milk drinking together. Breastfeeding has gotten a LOT better in the past 2-3 days. Thank goodness!! I think Downton Abbey is to thank : ) Season 1 is done, and I bought Season 2 for $20 from Amazon because it’s that good and I need to watch it NOW!
Lunch! Starving-mom-with-her-hands-full situation today. I couldn’t have eaten this more enthusiastically when I finally was able to sit down!
Meredith + Garrick’s Fiesta Chili recipe –> PUBLISHED! [Thanks for sharing guys!]
On the side – an awesome salad.
Leftover butternut squash and apples with pecans, olive oil and a drizzle of honey.
Afternoon snack – granola in milk x2! Plus some almonds.
Tonight’s dinner is brought to you by Pumpkin’s family, our neighbors, and the new-and-improved KERF household garden.
Thanks Bob and Ginger for the delicious lasagna! Matt and I spent the meal discussing what it was about your lasagna that was so unique – the extra fine, thin noodles? The type of meat? The cheese? There wasn’t brie in there, was there? We loved it!
Our garden has graduated from summer and gone to fall college. So long tomatoes and okra, hello beans, peas, braising greens and more!
Matt found a seed pack called “Braising Greens” – I think it’s a mix of kale, spinach, mustard greens and more. We ate the baby sprouts as a salad tonight – with sliced apple and cheddar cheese and more pecans on top. [Pekanz are the nut of the week!] Tossed in a simple lemon juice + olive oil dressing.
Have a happy week!
