Menu Plan ~ September 20, 2009

LiveJournal Tags: ,

Apples & pumpkins are my favorite fall fruits & veggies.  I also have a fondness for squash of all size & shape.  I am mourning my berries, peaches, plums & watermelon and moving forward.  I just bought my first couple Honeycrisp apples today!  YUM!!  I am so looking forward to eating these!  Honeycrisp Apples were developed at the University of Minnesota. Honeycrisp apple is a cross between Macoun apple and Honey Gold apples and is extraordinarily crisp and juicy with a wonderful aroma and flavor. 

Wendy at Celiacs in the House is hosting this week’s gluten-free menu swap.  Wendy’s choice ingredient of the week is pumpkins!  I could eat pumpkin every day of the week!  Here are some of my favorite pumpkin recipes:  Acorn squash with creamy pumpkin brown rice, pumpkin bread, chocolate pumpkin bread, pumpkin oatmeal, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin chocolate chip bars and pumpkin pie.  I think I will make some pumpkin bread this week! ;)  Speaking of pumpkin, did you know that Trader Joe’s has their pumpkin butter back on the shevles!?!?!  I definitely bought some the other day!  Major YUM!
