Pumpkin Chia Pudding

This looks kind of nasty. But trust me it tastes really good. And easy. Takes a few minutes to set up, but not long. I get my seeds soaking whiling get dressed or taking the dogs out.


Pudding Recipe:

1/2 cup Almond Milk (Or any milk)
2 tbsp Chia Seeds
2 tbsp Maple Syrup (Or honey or Agave)
1 tsp Spices (Optional)

Mix first two ingredients together, let sit for 5 plus minutes. Mix everything else in. Enjoy.
I like it warmed, but its delicious cold too.

Here are the labels so you can get the nutritional information.

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Bars

For years on most tailgating morning. My friends mom Cindy, always makes cinnamon cream cheese bars. And if she doesn’t, there is hell to pay.
Cameron doesn’t always request things, so when he does. I try to accommodate him. At first I didn’t know what he was talking about. He just said “Are you going to make them pumpkin bars?” I’ve never made pumpkin bars, so it took some explaining from him. In the end, I figured out he want Cindys bars pumpkinfied.

I just took Cindy’s cream cheese bar recipe and added pureed pumpkin. Which is so easy to begin with. All you need is 5 ingredients. You can add spices if you want. I did here though, and I would suggest it.
I couldn’t find my beater attachments, so I just hand mixed the filling. So you’ll see specks of cream cheese in the pictures. Clearly I wasn’t caring that day. Didn’t change the deliciousness at all 🙂

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Bars Recipe

8 oz Softened package of cream cheese
1/2 cup Sugar
1/2 can Pumpkin Puree
1 tbsp Vanilla Extract
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Ginger
1/2 tsp Allspice
2 cans Crescent Roll
19 x 13 pan (I would suggest glass)

Topping (optional):
1 tbsp Sugar
1/2 tsp Cinnamon

Spread one of the cans of crescent rolls out in the bottom of your pan. You can choose to butter or spray your pan. I didn’t and it was fine. Mix First 7 ingredients together till well blended. Then pour and spread over the first layer of crescent dough. Now spread the second can of dough on to the filling. This might take a minute. I sprinkled the top with cinnamon sugar before baking.
Bake at 350 f for around 25 minutes. Check at around 20.

Fall Vegetable Planting

This was just an extra opened bag of soil I had left over from spring. Once I got the visitors out, it was still really dark and moist. This is the first time I’ve tried cauliflower.

The lavender seeds I sowed in spring never sprouted. Hopefully these will, if not. I’ll try another brand.

I should be able to get one more outside group of lettuces. I can always move them to our front porch.

I still have a few things to plant next week. I was going to plant cabbage, until I realized I didn’t have any. lol.
I’ll be planting my tulips and garlic soon.
