Happy OCTOBER first!
I can’t believe I just typed that out.. yikes!
Since it’s first day of october, ya’ll know I had to share
SOMETHING pumpkin related. Right?
Right ;-)

Who says you can’t have your pie and eat it in the MORNING too? Actually….you can. I really do love left over pie after the holidays. But, the holidays aren’t here quiet yet.. but most definitely creeping up. I’ve had my pumpkin in protein balls.. pancakes.. muffins but not yet my favorite warm bowl of oatmeal. naturally, I had to make something with it!
