Have I mentioned I like pumpkins? And this weekend has turned into a pumpkin weekend! Friday it was pumpkin gelato (yum!!), Saturday was pumpkin frozen yogurt (from red mango) and pumpkin curry (double yum!), Sunday was pumpkin latte and a pumpkin smoothie made by yours truly. Seriously, I might turn into a pumpkin at this point. Or at least some shade of orange. True story – my first baby picture (shortly after my entrance into this world) had a little bit of my red hair sticking up which looked like a stem. My first nickname? What else – pumpkin. Since it is October 31st and I haven’t made any “new” recipes (per my 33 Things list) this month what else should I do but stick with the pumpkin theme and make a pumpkin smoothie? Originally I had thought to make an exciting squash recipe or something else fall-ish but time got away from me so pumpkin smoothie it is. Cop out? Eh, maybe but since it is my list and my rules, I’m counting it. I have no idea where I got this recipe but basically pumpkin, banana and yogurt thrown together with some spices and blend. It turned out good! And no, I don’t normally have a doily, but it was there and I thought it dressed up the pumpkin! 🙂
Speaking of my 33 Things list, we need a 5K for October don’t we? I had planned on doing the Pumpkin Push 5K but as with the recipe, things didn’t quite go according to plan. With my cold settling in my chest, I decided to pass on the 5K. I had done a 5K earlier in the month, but it didn’t have a cool name like Pumpkin Push so I wasn’t going to officially count it. But now I am. I don’t remember much about the race except it was super cold – as in I saw my breath. Brr!
And now I’m spending some quality time with my DVR. I’m thinking I’m going to give up on Survivor this season. I haven’t watched a single episode this season and I’ve got lots of other shows piling up. I’m sorry Survivor, my DVR has spoken and it is time for you to go.
