WIAW: Got Pumpkin?

I’m half expecting my skin to turn orange due to all the pumpkin I have been eating lately! Can that happen? I guess we will find out!

Spooky Snacks and Healthy Halloween Treats

For breakfast I enjoyed a pumpkin muffin with pumpkin cream cheese.

Have you ever tried this stuff?!

It.Is.Incredible. It’s so hard to not eat it right out of the container it’s so good. It’s so savory with a hint of sweetness. I have been enjoying it on bagels, and scones but my favorite way to eat it is on top of a pumpkin spice muffin, warmed up in the microwave. It’s like eating a piece of pumpkin cheesecake, with cream cheese frosting. YUM!!!!

Snack:

Grapes with Laughing Cow.

It’s really not a great time for grapes, but there are limited fruit selections at the store, and I cannot eat anymore apples. I just can’t.

Lunch:
Pumpkin soup and leftover Brussels Sprouts. I tried this soup for the first time earlier this month, and I just had to pick up another box. This soup is rich and creamy, with a great fall spice flavor. I will admit I added a little salt and pepper to mine, but other than that it’s a real winner.

Snack:
Pumpkin seeds! My favorite part of carving pumpkins is cooking the seeds! These salty treats never last long in my house.


Dinner:
There is basically no food in our freezer, but I did manage to find the very last bit of chicken. I used this recipe, and cooked up some drumsticks in the crock pot.

I served it up with some steamed broccoli and a new-to-me rice medley, which is very yummy. I def recommend trying this!

Dessert:

I was sooo excited to finally try these!

I bought these last week and they have been calling my name from my freezer ever since. These tiny treats are sooo yummy and bite sized. However, at 170 calories a piece I certainly wouldn’t recommend making more than 1 at a time, otherwise it could get ugly! I enjoyed mine with a late night cup of what else, pumpkin coffee. It was the perfect finish to Monday’s menu!

Question of the Day:

What is the best thing you have eaten this week?
