So sad the weekend is over!

Saturday was great – we got a ton of stuff done, watched A LOT of football, and ate some good food.

Yesterday was about as homespun as they go ;) Ate breakfast at home, went to church, came home for leftovers, went to an open house, took Maggie to the park, made some fun food items, cleaned the house, worked on laundry, switched summer –> fall / winter clothes, and made dinner!

Whew – that makes me tired just looking at that list!

After a busy weekend at home, I feel like this Monday morning is turning me back into a pumpkin:


And, since I had some pumpkin in the fridge…


Pumpkin Oats made sense for this overcast Monday morning.


  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 banana, sliced
  • pinch salt
  • cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin
  • 1 Tbsp peanut butter
  • sprinkle of dark chocolate chips


Plus a fun pumpkin drink, but those details will have to wait!


What did YOU do this weekend?

Make any fun new recipes?

Take a much needed nap?

Spend time with family?


  1. I want to know what that fun pumpkin drink is! :)

  2. Sounds like you had a busy but productive weekend!! Can’t wait to see what that pumpkin drink is!!

  3. I baked for the very first time with yeast and the Cinnamon Swirl Loaf turned out better than I could have imagined. I may never buy another package of it again!

    That pumpkin drink looks yummy!

  4. Your oatmeal always look so perfect and deliciously creamy!

  5. ok, I am eating this after I run! I really relaxed for the first time in a while but had to organize a lot!

  6. I need a good pumpkin smoothie recipe – so I’m hoping that’s what that teaser is!! :)

  7. I made peanut butter & honey banana bread! Yummmm :)

  8. I made those crunchy peanut butter cookies this weekend. I thought they were just okay, however, last night for dinner I topped one with a little mashed banana, coconut butter, and whipped cream. Yum! Tasted just like coconut creme pie!

  9. Mmm, pumpkin. Looks like you’re off to a good start on monday! I did alot of relaxing after a rough week, cooking dinner friday night helped :)
