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!
