Hello, Fall!

Wednesday, September 21, 2011

Weighed in today at 185 -- the goal I had set for my birthday this coming Tuesday. Woohoo! Medication I'm on had seemed to make weight loss harder, so I had assumed that was all I could do -- glad body seems to be responding better at the moment.

I am SOOO excited for Fall. I've been looking up all kinds of pumpkin recipes. Since we are staying with a friend this weekend, I broke this one out:
, a recipe for delicious pumpkin butter, at 22.3 calories a serving (1 Tablespoon). Made a small jar for the host and one for us. Not sure my servings will make it on top of something-- I may just eat it a spoonful at a time! Calories could be cut more by using Splenda instead of brown sugar, but I didn't have the brown sugar Splenda and didn't want to try it out for the first time as a gift.

By the way, I updated the link from my last blog post, sorry for those who tried to visit last night!

    I'm going to go to the supermarket this weekend to do some Fall shopping myself, make some apple and pumpkin breads! Fall always has this effect on me, seems it does the same to you! emoticon

    apple will come soon. We want to go apple picking, so will likely get a bunch and do lots of baked apples, etc.

    I've not done much with pumpkin outside breads (pumpkin bread, pumpkin muffins), but this pumpkin butter recipe is fantastic, and I've found some great looking fall soup recipes with pumpkin that we plan to try. A adores pumpkin, so doing what I can to help him get his fix!

    Pumpkin recipes? I'm not too excited about pumpkin recipes. LOL! It's something my mother and family didn't cook much with. I'm open to try something new. Maybe I should give it a try. LOL!

May u have good success!
