Whipped Pumpkin Cream Cheese Spread


Well, 'tis the season for all things pumpkin.  I am trying to resist in putting this ingredient in everything and buying out each grocery store I walk into.  It's hard.

We've got actual pumpkins on our front step that the kids are in love with, the squirrels like to nibble on, and the little miss likes to grab and chuck down the front sidewalk.  She thinks it hilarious.  Her brother, who is much more reserved and orderly, thinks it is NOT cool that she does this.

She usually gets reprimanded the instant the pumpkin in flying in the air.


Since I made this we've spread this on toasted bagels, dipped apples into it and stirred it into oatmeal.  All three very tasty.

And all very fall like.

If you're like me, I'm a little obsessed with fall.  I can't stay off Pinterest and other DIY blogs that look like they are straight out of Better Homes and Gardens magazine.

Oh, how I wish I had the time and was willing to give the effort into those projects.  Until then....I'll dream.



Whipped Pumpkin Cream Cheese Spread
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 c. pumpkin puree
2 T. brown sugar
1 t. cinnamon

Combine all ingredients into a food processor until whipped and smooth.  Keep in the fridge until ready to eat.  Serve on bagels, toast, as a fruit dip or in oatmeal.

Now, I've got two Target gift cards that are burning a hole in my pocket and the day off.  Lets see if the husband will watch the kids for a few hours?

Wish me luck.

  7. To some, this can be great, it literally lets you do as you please; others
    though may get tiresome of the experience due to lack of purpose and reward the game gives you.
    But now many guys meet the Minecraft lags
    when playing Minecraft offline. What's next with Bukkit
    is selecting and installing plugins.

  8. Researchers also believe that taking HCG helps to normalize the cholesterol levels of those on the diet.
    In such an altered phase it is essential that
    we give importance to our body so that we can have a long and happy life.
    This can give you a definite goal which can later on help you work hard during exercise sessions and comply to a healthy diet.
