I won’t lie, I was scared to taste it but Chris said it was okay.  He’s never had pumpkin, including  pumpkin pie.  Crazy, right??  I think I’ll work on it before sharing the recipe.

Followed by some yummy Pop Chips, Corinne sent me to sample. Thank you again.

I enjoyed the  Sour Cream & Onion flavor.

NEVER had pumpkin pie!?!? What!? I love Forever 21…I have yet to walk in and not walk out with a whole bag of clothes! Hence, I haven’t gone in the store in awhile in order not to go broke :)

Oh that is so sweet! Thanks for passing the award on to me! I have been experimenting with new vegetarian recipes lately. I have taken recipes that I have found on-line or in books and altered them :-)

Nicci October 7, 2009 at 8:11 pm

MARIA- Yes, thank you. I’m better now, but a tad congested still.

maria October 7, 2009 at 7:58 pm

:) That dessert was super yummy!

Are you feeling any better?

Nicole October 7, 2009 at 7:40 pm

I heart all pastas! I love the fact that you put pumpkin in it and AB. I just recently made a pasta dish with TJ’s peanut satay sauce and shirataki noodles – YUM! We must have the same taste buds. Have a good night, lady!

Nicci October 7, 2009 at 7:24 pm

Mari- haha, yes I actually put Almond Butter in this sauce. Great Minds…think

Mari October 7, 2009 at 7:16 pm

I made Peanut Butter Pasta lol….I tossed together PB, Sesame Teriyaki Sauce, Crushed Red Pepper, WW Pasta, and some Sauteed Veggies =). It actually tasted pretty good…anything with PB is good in my book

Make sure you follow Number 8 on that list! Mine is Full Time Personal Trainer =)
