Pumpkin Patch Smoothie

I know I've been slacking on the post, but I should be back on track starting next week. Fall for me means local cook-offs so I've put all my focus into it lately. I'm also planning a pumpkin carving party for this Saturday and can't wait! Thanks for all the votes for the contest! Both of my recipes are in the top 8 so fingers crossed they stay there till November 9th!!

A Couple of Saturday's ago I went to take pictures of my co-workers family at the local pumpkin patch and had a blast meeting her family and playing with the kids. So in celebration of the kids making it through a warm Texas day before having a meltdown I'm made a pumpkin smoothie while I look back at some of my favorite pictures.

Pumpkin Smoothie

½ cup canned pumpkin
¾ cup milk or vanilla yogurt
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
2 teaspoons brown sugar
4 ice cubes

Combine ingredients in a blender and putee until smooth. Pour the smoothies into glasses and garnish each with a dollop of vanilla yogurt or whipped topping and sprinkle with cinnamon or a few colored sprinkles.

Mommy's girl!

Time to go!

Nap Time!

Have a great weekend!
