SO I survived my busy busy week! I got to enjoy lots of yummy food this week too! I’m in love with fall, it’s my favorite season! I love the changing leaves, the crisp air, bonfires, Thanksgiving, abundant produce, and my favorite of all PUMPKINS and APPLES! My new obsession is pumpkin butter! Lately when I’ve been planning a meal or snack I think hmm.. what can I put pumpkin butter on?! My favorites so far: its AMAZING on waffles, on toast, added to vanilla greek yogurt it tastes like pumpkin pie! I have a recipe for pumpkin sauce that I need to try soon. Pumpkin has endless possibilities, its tastes great, its creamy, it adds moisture all without added fat! My awful exam this week included Vitamin A metabolism and boy is pumpkin loaded with vitamin A! Lots of antioxidant properties and it helps you vision! (I’ll restrain the rest of the nutrition nerd in me)
Apples, now they are great too! They are a great grab a go snack, great in cider (hot or cold), cobblers, crisps, applesauce. Endless possibilities! There is nothing like warm homemade applesauce to remind me of fall at home. Its a comfort food and it brings back great memories! I think my favorite snack right now is a sliced apple with peanut butter mixed with raisins! SO GOOD! Also, apples and caramel sauce with a glass of milk is my new favorite dessert!
I’m thinking about making some turkey chili this weekend! It will be my first attempt at chili, so I’m pretty pumped!Its the perfect football weekend meal! GO PSU!!! Also a coffeecake may be in the near future considering I’ve never made on of those before either!
Have a great weekend!!! 🙂
