A got home with pizza (Pino’s, right down the street, is truly fantastic, and was his brother’s last request before he heads home today) and was nice enough to share with me! I got a square each of Sicilian and Chicken Tomato.
Along side a homemade Pumpkin Shake!
I had out the blended because I made A a Guinness Milkshake so it seemed like a good time for a seasonal favorite. FYI – Guinness Milkshake = Guinness and vanilla ice cream in a blender; very good if you like dark beer. When I worked at the bar on campus in college there was a regular who invented them. Mine was actually more of a smoothie.
- 1/2 C yogurt blends vanilla frozen yogurt
- 1/2 C nonfat plain Fage
- 1 C pumpkin puree
- about 1 T maple syrup
- 1/2 C skim milk
- a dash each nutmeg and pumpkin pie spice
Topped with a little cinnamon. This came to 350 calories, but was far too big and I couldn’t finish it all. You could definitely halve the recipe.
A’s brother is leaving around 3pm and I have more schoolwork to do and a gym class I’d like to go to at 5. We are eating leftovers so hopefully I should get to watch some tv and get to bed early today. Happy pumpkin picking folks!
