Frosty Fall Treat

If you live in the South, you know that when fall arrives, fall-like temperatures don't always come immediately. It is cool here at our house today, but will be back in the 80s by the end of the week. Summer just doesn't want to let go.

Still, we try for a fall-like mood. I haven't baked any pumpkin bread, yet, but will be making some soon. In the meantime, to cool down a bit, we enjoy this frosty pumpkin treat.

1/4 cup of sugar (or sweetener of your choice)
1/2 banana
1/3 cup pumpkin puree
1/3 cup vanilla yogurt (or plain--I always use vanilla)
3/4 cup of milk
a few shakes of pumpkin pie spice
4-6 ice cubes

Put all in blender and blend until smooth. Enjoy! This makes two fairly tall glasses of frosty pumpkin drink.

Happy Fall, Y'all!

Well, I've been meaning to post for a few weeks and life has just kept me busy. I hope all of you are enjoying your fall. It has seemed like summer for the most part here in western Arkansas, but today it is practically cold out there! It will only last for a few days before it warms back up, but I'm loving the 'chill' in the air!

Have all of you put out some fall decorations? I have put out a few around the cabin, but not as many as usual. My favorite part of fall decorating is my porch. I always put out a little scarecrow and some other decorations. But not this year. My porch is gone! Why? Because the cabin is going to 'grow'. Yep, we pulled off the porch and we are adding on a new kitchen and a little bonus room that is going to be our 'hobby room'. 

I'm pretty excited about the addition, but we are kinda slow at all of this, as we are doing it ourselves, so it is going to be a while before we are finished. I will try to update you with some pictures along the way.

Our garden was pretty much a bust this year, but I did manage to grow one white pumpkin. And it was a little 'volunteer' plant, so that was the extent of our pumpkin growing this year. I hope all of you had better luck with your gardens!

Big waves to all of you!
