Late to the Party!

In the words of Sam Seabourne (West Wing - our all time favorite show) "Let's forget the fact that you are coming a little late to the party and embrace the fact that you showed up at all"!

I have been hearing for WEEKS how wonderful pumpkin is - and I have made a few things with pumpkin (these were delicious and I actually made them vegan unintentionally - forgot the eggs!)

and am stockpiling it like all the other food bloggers are

But had yet to try Trader Joe's Pumpkin Butter which I have been hearing about non-stop for all these weeks.

So I was in St Louis, the closest TJ's to me now that I am in the sticks so I decided to put it on the list.  Didn't dig into it till I finished the homemade Apple Butter I bought at Taste of Palmyra.  My husband has a way of making a big deal about me not finishing things that I buy, so I was determined to not break into the TJ's Pumpkin Butter till I finished the other.  Well, I finished the apple butter yesterday with my oatmeal and was excited to break out the new butter this morning.

I love it!!!!!  I can taste what all the hype was about!  I think I will only be doing Pumpkin Butter from now on.

So I'm embracing the fact that I came to the party at all!!!  And I'm glad I made it!

Activity today:
2 miles running 20:24 - not my fastest time but did feel pretty good - temp 32 degrees!
Tomorrow starts the Booty Challenge!!

Food Today:
1/3 cup oatmeal with granola, almonds, Quaker Oat Squares, Pumpkin Butter and Almond Butter
Cream of Wild Rice and Mushroom Soup (leftover from last nite and AWESOME), small tortilla wrap with Almond Butter and apple slices, carrots
2 TJ's Oatmeal/Cranberry Dunkers
