And I can take a breather.
It has been an exhausting week, as I’m sure you could tell from my lack of posting. This weekend isn’t going to be super exciting either since I have to study for a virology exam, revise a literature paper, and prepare for an oral report, but I’m determined to have at least a little bit of fun!
This evening, Emma and I went to Walmart to pick up some much needed groceries. Ice cream, hot chocolate, and baking supplies…totally essential. We both needed to satisfy our pumpkin cravings, so we did a little baking this evening.
I made pumpkin granola!
It turned out so great! I can’t wait to eat some of this on top of yogurt or oatmeal….or just eat it plain with my fingers because I’m classy like that
serves one (I doubled this recipe in the above photos!)
1/2 cup Oats
2 tbsp Honey
2 tsp Water or Apple Juice
1/4 tsp Cinnamon
pinch of Nutmeg
pinch of Salt
2 tbsp Pumpkin Puree
-Mix all of the ingredients in a small bowl, make sure they’re well incorporated.
-Place in a baking dish, bake at 300 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Keep an eye on it, granola burns fast!
Emma had something a little different in mind for her pumpkin.
PUMPKIN MUFFINS! She made these simply by mixing a box of yellow cake mix with 15 oz. of canned pure pumpkin and baking for 20 minutes at 350 F. I haven’t tried one yet, but she said they rock! And I definitely have my eyes set on one for tomorrow’s breakfast.
Tomorrow I’m going to see a play with my brother and his girlfriend. Sometimes my brother is such a bone head, but then out of the blue, he invites me to see a play, and even bought my (expensive) ticket! I’m super excited to spend the day with him tomorrow. Then in the evening, I’ll be hitting the books…hard.
Have a good weekend everyone!
