Happy Sunday everyone! I am SUPER excited about the line up I have planned for you all this week. I think you are going to LOVE it. I am working on a bunch of new recipes ~ some highlights include ~ a super cool VEGAN recipe involving chickpeas, a How-To and another pumpkin bread using another fall fruit ~ any guesses on the fruit?
OH and let me just say GIVEAWAYS!!! I am hosting my BIGGEST giveaway yet on Wednesday. Ready for this ~ there will be 50 WINNERS!!!! I am so pumped for it – I cannot wait to share the details with you all. I have a few other giveaways lined up for you all this month as well ~ I am jealous because I want to win them LOL.
I won another award and you all will get the chance to learn a little about me when I post it.
The Husband has a funny little post he plans on sharing this week, I think. It is really just a picture, but, his commentary is always funny.
I also will be launching a cool new feature on my blog to allow you all to save/print/store my recipes soon (this week I hope). I think you will LOVE it!
I think I may try balancing things by adding back posting my daily eats and workouts ~ fingers crossed I can do it and not take 1-2 hours posting in the evening.
On Tuesday, I give my speech about blogging to an entire group of women ~ ahhhh! Being the planner I am, I have yet to write it up and put my presentation together. Soooooo…..if you all have anything, any thought you think I can share, feel free to comment away. I have to speak for 15 minutes 🙂
I think that sums it all up ~ so much fun stuff planned that I have a hard time not sharing and posting it all in one day 🙂 Instead, I’ll leave you with one MORE Pumpkin Butter use ~ I am pretty sure you could guess this was coming…..
PUMPKIN BUTTER OATS
1/2 c Quaker Old Fashioned Oats
1 c water or 1/2 water, 1/2 apple juice
1 Tbsp Trader Joe’s Berry Blend
1/2 Tbsp ground flax seed
Dashes of Cinnamon, Vanilla and Sea Salt
Combine the above in a microwave safe bowl and cook for 2 minutes. Remove and add your desired toppings.
1 Tbsp chopped walnuts, roasted in the microwave for 1 minute, 35 seconds
Sprinkle of Organic Unsweetened Coconut
~ This is also awesome topped with a drizzle of agave, almond butter or more PUMPKIN BUTTER!
Incredibly delish ~ I LOVE oatmeal and PUMPKIN OATS rock! I promise, my pumpkin butter is all gone now :) Would you believe me if I told you I am not even a HUGE pumpkin fan? This year though for some odd reason, maybe I finally am becoming one. It might be that whole trying something 12 times and then you like it philosophy.
Alright ~ we are off for the day. Have a awesome day all!
