Pumpkin.

I baked again..

One of my September goals was to bake something with pumpkin.  Cross that off the list {That, and only that}.  I have never really had a lot of pumpkin flavored things so I am trying something new.  I decided on some bread!  I used the pumpkin bread with pepitas recipe from skinnytaste.

 

 

 

I must say it came out pretty fantastic!  I of course had to add some dark chocolate chunks into it because everything tastes better with chocolate.  I’m still awaiting the arrival of the hubman from work so he can give the approval {and tell me to stop making up words}.

My mom is coming down tomorrow so we can go see some dancing at New York City Center.  Hopefully I can get her to eat some of this bread so I don’t scarf it down all by myself!

SO far I think I like this pumpkin thing!  Next up..  Apples.

 

Byee.

Just Call Me Susie.

I am so proud of myself today!  I had and amazing food day!  This morning I had my usual breakfast and then for lunch some PB on an english muffin with bananas.

I couldn’t decide so that is some regular PB and some Peanut Butter and Co. Dark Chocolate Dreams.  Amazing.

I decided to take the day off from running to give my knees and feet a break so I did an upper body workout at the gym and then biked for 25 minutes.  It was nice to get some strength training in again, I have been leaving my muscles out since I’ve been running so much.  Hopefully I will be feeling it tomorrow!

 

Crazy ab sweat!

Tonight for dinner I made this amazing jumble of food..

and then I put it in a tortilla and made it a taco with some greek yogurt!

Image

Ground turkey, red and green peppers, black beans, onions, salsa and some other spices mixed in there.  Delish.

After dinner, while J was at work I decided to try out some baking!  Since it was National Zucchini Day,  YES, apparently they have a day for everything, AND zucchini is my favorite, I decided to try out a zucchini bread.

Image

I mixed a little of this Coconut Zucchini Bread recipe with this Zucchini Oatmeal Bread recipe.

Image

It tasted amazing!!!  When J came home it was just about done so we will have full bellies before bed. But it was so good I can’t even believe it!  And it’s good for you because it has zucchini in it!  No but really, no butter, no oil.  It’s not bad.

 He liked it!!!

You wouldn’t even recognize me with all this cooking and baking!  Next time I will have to try it with some nuts or fruit or even chocolate!  We’ll see! {My sneaky plan to fatten J up is only just beginning!}

For now, it’s bedtime!

Byeee.
