WIAW - Monthly Recap and Recipe Edition

Wednesday, October 29, 2014

What a month it has been! This is the last WIAW for October and I am just going to highlight some of the stuff that I ate often throughout this month!


At the beginning of the month, I ate a bunch of these Pumpkin O's and I loved them. Sadly, Trader Joe's has not had them since the first time I bought them, so I haven't been able to have them again.
So I moved on to....

Pumpkin Bagels and I am still eating those every morning! Love them, but it is time to find a new breakfast!


For lunch I ate a lot of Tomato and Roasted Red Pepper soup. Yum! Then a reader told me about Pumpkin croutons and I made that addition. Delicious!
As much as I love the soup, I couldn't eat it every day so some days I would eat my old trusty lunch.
Turkey on Oatmeal bread with spinach and Dijon mustard! I really love this sandwich!


We have been eating a whole bunch of our freezer meals...
You can check them out here and here.
A few other meals we have eaten this month...
Breakfast for dinner, Pumpkin pancakes, scrambled eggs and fruit.
Apple chicken sausage, brown rice and broccoli/cauliflower mix.


I indulged in my first and only pumpkin muffin this season! I loved it!
I love these Pumpkin Cranberry crisps from Trader Joe's with Laughing Cow Swiss cheese on them. I am really hoping they are still in stock when I get there this week, I need a refill!
In the evening I am loving these...
They are really delicious and only 80 calories!
The final snack that I have loved and the kids have loved this month is of course pumpkin flavored, but is it a muffin or is a cupcake??
I don't know the answer to that question!
Every where I looked, I was seeing the recipe for spice cake mix and a can of pumpkin. I made them last year and they were not a hit with the kids. This year I decided to make them with a yellow cake mix and try to redeem myself! They were awesome! The whole family loved them. I made them mini muffins so that the kids could have two of them with some whipped cream for dessert. They are the perfect little dessert!  You aren't using oil or eggs in the recipe, they are super, super easy and delicious, you can't go wrong!

Mini Chocolate chips
Mix all ingredients together and bake! It doesn't get easier than that! You should definitely try them!

Happy Wednesday Everyone!
