Pumpkin is a vegetable that my kids and husband are a bit resistant to. They only tolerate it in very small quantities (if at all), so I am always looking for ways to integrate (read:hide) it in different things I cook. There’s only so many vegful meatballs they’ll eat, so this week I turned to chocolate to help me out 🙂
Today, I am sharing a chocolate brownie recipe, which is loaded with pumpkin and the kids gobbled it up! It’s low in fat too (if you’re worried about that type of thing 😉 ).
It has been a busy week here, with kids starting a new year at school. It hasn’t taken long to get back into the old routine of menu planning and lunch box prepping.
I feel like this year will be different though. I am allowing myself a little bit of time just for me. The family schedule is filling up fast, but I am making sure that in there, there is some time for me to get back a little bit of sanity, to exercise a little bit and just take some deep breaths.
I have set myself a challenge, to exercise every day in February for 30 minutes. It may be a walk, or weights or pilates
or a run . So far, so good. Ok, so it’s only day 1, but whatever, as far as I’m concerned, I’m 100% on target! I’ll keep you posted how I am going!
And now onto cake… 😉
