This morning I stowed away some Halloween décor, cleaned the pumpkins out and started baking after rescuing the kitchen from clutter. My son and husband enjoy eating roasted pumpkin seeds (pepitas) so I roasted some with salt and pepper and then roasted the pumpkins we had. My plan is to get some good pumpkin puree going for a batch of muffins, pumpkin soup and pie!
My kids, who are the ultimate of picky eaters, enjoy pumpkin muffins so much! I think I’ve been baking with pumpkin every fall for as long as I can remember and we do the pumpkin patch walks, pumpkin painting, and anything family friendly we can get to for the Autumn Season.
I used Pioneer Woman’s recipe for pumpkin butter when I had company last weekend and it went over really well. I recommend it, if you like a nice toastie with fall flavor.
I had a few too many of those fun size bars yesterday, during Halloween.
I’ve been doing Kayla Itsine’s Sweat App workouts and I’ve made it to BBG 3.0. I’m pleased with my progress at 9 months postpartum, but I’m going to try and clean up my eating style.
She had posted this recipe for pumpkin soup and I think I will be making a batch with some of my roasted pumpkin and do a clean-up of some of my usual baking recipes with healthy substitutions.
How do you clean up recipes? Do you try and maintain your eating habits during the holidays?
