…is it ever too early for pumpkin-anything?
Pumpkin chocolate-chip cookies…
Well, maybe so, but many of you know that I L-O-V-E the spherical orange squash. I’m strange. It’s fine.
Last Fall I added pumpkin puree to my oatmeal nearly every morning…with cinnamon, a dash of nutmeg…a dash of this and that. All of a sudden Spring arrived and where was the canned pumpkin puree?! No where! I wanted to cry.
Friends. I was at the market last week and I saw it. Organic Canned Pumpkin. The skies opened and it was like a beacon of light.
I am getting carried away, right?
I want to share with you one of my favorite and simple breakfasts. Not only is it simple, but it’s flavorful and full of good things for your body. I love that part!
Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal
– 3/4 cup old fashioned oats
– 1 cup water or 1% milk
– 1 to 2 Tbls pumpkin puree. I use canned pumpkin puree.
– 1 tsp ground cinnamon
– a pinch of nutmeg
– a pinch of cloves
– a dash of sea salt. optional.
Cook oatmeal according to package. Stove-top is the best but microwave works just fine.
When the oatmeal is fully cooked, pour into a bowl and stir-in the remaining ingredients. Enjoy with coffee or tea!
Now you know one of my all-time favorite foods: Pumpkin! What are some of your all-time favorite foods?!
