Surely you jest, Amazon Fire. It can not be 26 degrees outside. Re-booting did not change the answer. Which is so switch and bait of Mother Nature since the sun is blinding!
Since one of my favorite things to say is,”There’s a tea for that!”, I headed to the tea cupboard and Pumpkin Spice jumped right up like a Know it all kid in the third grade. Actually this Harney and Sons tea is the perfect tea to make you feel all warm and cozy inside. Especially if you are having Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars with them. Oooy, Gooey goodness makes my mouth water. And of course I used tea as the liquid. OU Boy sure was eating them last night so I’m guessing they are delicious as he is picky about food.
This time I made the Butternut Squash Soup with a different pear and one honey crisp apple. It is still delicious. I also made stuffed Acorn Squash. Stuffed with herbs,tri-color quinoa and just a bit of vegetable stock to make it stick. It was really good. Especially after I drizzled a half teaspoon of pure maple syrup over it!
What is with this sudden rash of kitchen witchery? Well I am trying to get OU Boy in shape for our Aruba trip. Now he actually started on his own, cutting down to less than a gallon of Mississippi Sweet Tea per day. And steering away from the white bread and Mayo. He’s lost almost 30 pounds. So I’m trying to make it easier on him by giving him healthy versions of things he likes. Also I hide things. And tell him we’re out. I’ve learned that if I have something made when he gets here, he doesn’t go for the quick fix. A couple of sandwiches and anything ending in ‘os’. Doritos, Cheetos,Fritos, and you get the picture.
It may be chilly outside but inside Bing Crosby is warming me up with White Christmas. As I wish my sisters were here so we could do the big Sisters number! We used to force our small children to sit on the couch and listen to us perform. They hate that movie now.
I hope you are safe and warm where you are today.
