Sorry I was MIA this morning but I just wanted a little vacay from the lap top. I spent the morning with my guys playing around the house, going for a morning run, and cleaning. It was a really nice morning! I also made a trip to Dunkin Donuts for the hubby and spontaneously asked if the Pumpkin Spice coffee was back yet and to my pleasant surprise it is! So I ordered myself a nice HOT Pumpkin Spice black and came home to jazz it up with Light Vanilla Soy Milk. It was soooooo tasty and really put me in the mood for Fall and October.
With my Pumpkin Spice in hand I checked my Twitter via my iPhone and was so happy to see my Tweeps using each other’s recipes! I love doing the spotlight posts and apparently you guys do read them and gather ideas too. That is what GGH is all about!! Not just me posting what works for just me, and what I like to eat, but sharing ideas/recipes and networking with each other.
With all that warm fuzzy happiness, and the inner warmth from my coffee ;), I decided to do a spotlight Fave Fall Treat post! While I only received a few the one’s I did receive are GREAT!!
zenadl Either warm pumpkin pie w/whip topping or pumpkin cheesecake-love it! I also love chicken tortilla soup!
FullPlateDiet Stews & Hot Tea
NotJKsEvieHmmm, fresh apple cider, homemade pumpkin pie and now I’m ready to try a new pumpkin New York style cheesecake (low fat) 😉
a_knightsdamselMy fav Fall treat..Tim Hortons Pumpkin Spice Muffins. Trying to figure out a “healthier” version to make at home. Or.. A turkey breast sandwich late on Thanksgiving evening w/ a cup of Pumpkin Spice tea.. even better than the big dinner!
BellaDolce5Mine’s Pumpkin coffee & pumpkin bread! I think I’ll go get some now 😉
Now those are some yummy options!!
With the Holiday’s coming I will start giving tips and tricks to enjoy Holiday foods with everyone and still maintain your GGH path!!
As I mentioned yesterday we wanted to do a fun day trip of sorts today, so we went APPLE PICKING!!! I found this cute little farm that had a pick your own orchard available, and it was only 15 minutes from the house. It was so quaint and cozy, I wanted to live there. Of course because it was like my dream place my camera battery went dead and half my pictures didn’t turn out….typical. We will be going back so I will post those when we do. But anyway, we picked tons of apples from macs, and cortlands to macoun’s so yummy. It was so peaceful wandering through the vast rows of trees filled with gorgeous fresh apples. We found ourselves munching on a few along the way too. Nothing better than farm fresh. If you are in the Rhode Island area check out Dame Farm on Brown St in Johnston…..so worth the trip. We also picked up a huge eggplant, squash, and zucchini. YUMMY!
I love purchasing the veggies from the farm stand, they seem to taste so much better.
Here are some pics that did turn out, hope ya like ’em!
So after all of that apple picking I decided I needed to June Clever up and make a home made apple pie! First time, and I think it turned out pretty well! I need to work on my crust work, but how many pies is little Miss GGH gonna make ;).
