Trying Pumpkin… Alfredo

Trying Pumpkin… Alfredo

This fall I am making a pointed effort to try pumpkin. With the season change and with seeing pumpkin this and pumpkin that, popping up everywhere, I’ve decided to see if I can find something I can enjoy. Personally, I’d prefer a raspberry or concord grape pie to pumpkin, so I’ll skip the pie.

Thus I happened upon this Pumpkin Alfredo recipe by Yellow Bliss Road. Check out the link for the recipe and how to! I love Alfredo and her pictures make it look so yummy that it just had to give it a try.

How I Started Drinking Coffee

How I Started Drinking Coffee

I did not grow up in a coffee drinking family. The only coffee in the house were a couple things of instant coffee stored in the pantry and forgotten about except on Thanksgiving day. On Thanksgiving, we got out all of my Mom’s nice china which included a set of coffee cups and saucers. Following the main meal, my Mom would set the kettle and offer up coffee: decaf, caffeinated, (we did at least have options) and tea.

At church, there was always a coffee hour but for me, my focus was the donuts and maybe I would grab milk or orange juice. So I did have an opportunity to try coffee but just wasn’t really interested.

Coffee - 1

Fast forward to college. For some coffee helps you wake up for that 7:30am lab or pull an all-nighter. My morning necessity was cereal, just ask my lab partner (I just about shutdown our lab computer once, sorry) I can’t recall why I decided to give coffee a try, but I do remember it was my junior or senior year.

Homemade Rolled Ice Cream

Homemade Rolled Ice Cream

I’ve been seeing this lately all over, ice cream made in a flat sheet, scraped up into rolls, and served. It looks so cool. I found a recipe and thought I would give it a try. Check out the photos below. Note I think I need to give it another go, but next time half the recipe for my baking sheet so the ice cream is thin and easier to roll and fewer sprinkles. My sprinkle density ended up a little high since they sank to the bottom and I didn’t realize how much I had already put in.
