Yup, Another Pumpkin Post!

by Courtney on October 15, 2010

Ok ok, I know. We’ve all heard enough about pumpkin to last a lifetime. I’d apologize, but then again, I’m not sorry. ;)

It’s no secret to you all that I absolutely adore pumpkin. “Borderline obsessed” could probably even pass as appropriate.

So you can imagine my excitement when Jay’s parents stopped by with THIS:

Pumpkin Butter!! :mrgreen: While they were up visiting Maine this past weekend, they picked up a few goodies to share with us. I love how they associated pumpkin with me.

I immediately dug my finger right into the jar and was ecstatic with the flavors bursting in my mouth. Oh.my.god… I knew it was going to have to be incorporated into my next meal.

I thought about waffles. I thought about toast. I even considered just straight up outta the jar with a spoon…

But then the thought of pumpkin yogurt crossed my mind…

and a match was made in heaven. :-P

I mixed about 1-1/2 tbsp of pumpkin butter into a plain flavored Chobani, which was already delicious enough on its own. However, if you know me, then you know that I’m definitely all about the toppings!

I topped my pumpkin yogurt with 1/2 of a leftover crumbled Banana muffin, 1/2 of a diced honeycrisp apple, and a sprinkling of granola.

My tastebuds and my belly were more than pleased with my creation. :-P

ALSO just as pleasing this morning?? The fact that I am finally feeling just about normal and was able to get up bright and early for a killer workout! I did the Rock Hard Total Body Workout from Exercise on Demand, and WOW am I gonna be feelin’ that one. It’s been a while since I’d done it, but I loved every minute of it. YAY for finally feeling healthy! :-D

Ok, so I am now happy to announce the winner of my Adora disks giveaway!!…

Pumpkin butter is the best! But the Trader Joe’s around here only carries it seasonally, and it’s still not on the shelves. I love your idea of it with yogurt and fruit! :)

I’m not sick of pumpkin. And I need to get my hands on some pumpkin butter. Or get the motivation to make some of my own. Ha!

Nope, never sick of pumpkin. It’s way to multi-dimensional to get sick of.

Was the workout one of the Body by Jake workouts? I’ve done those and they kick. your. butt. Pumpkin yogurt sounds awesome- how autumnal of you! :)

Love me some Chobani!! :) That Rock Hard Total Body workout is legit – def feel that one the next day for sure. I still haven’t gotten my hands on pumpkin butter yet this season, not sure why not though? I’ve been delving into the canned pumpkin already but not with the same exuberance as last year — I’m attributing it to the above normal 90 degree days we’ve had this October! My time will come… ;)

I have been doing that same workout lately & it kicks my bootay! In a good way, of course! ;)

Nope, not sick of pumpkin. I have actually been doing pumpkin yogurt, too, but with plain canned pumpkin. I mix it with oats & pumpkin pie spice for the creamiest overnight oats! So super yummy!

Don’t worry, I’ll never get sick of eating pumpkin or reading about it. ;)
