Pumpkin Party!

October 20, 2010

I’ve heard about mixing cottage cheese into oats so I thought I’d give it a go.

In the mix:

  • 1/4 cup homemade Scottish oats
  • 2 T rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • pinch salt
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin
  • 1/4 cup cottage cheese
  • dash cinnamon
  • splash vanilla

Topped with:

  • 1/2 T homemade peanut butter
  • 1T pumpkin butter
  • Bear Naked Granola (sample from the race)


This bowl was HUGE but unfortunately I was not impressed 😦  It was a little too liquidy and, wait for it… too salty!  I never thought those words would come out of my mouth fingers.  I also had to pick the walnuts out of the granola.  That is one nut I just don’t like.

Pre-breakfast snack and workout occurred today.  Half a banana and peanut butter then 30 minutes on the bike and a quick lifting session.  My legs are feeling great and I hope to get in a run on Thursday 🙂

Leftover cream of broccoli soup and half a honeycrisp for lunch

My poor co-workers mad the bad decision to ask how my race went and then had to be subjected to me talking about it in detail for an hour.

Meanwhile this was going on in my apartment.

Can you guess which half is mine?

I came home and pretended to help by sipping the last sample of pumpkin beer.

Then it was time to eat!

Alright, so what was this bad boy of a pizza anyways?

Pumpkin Pizza with Curried Spinach and Onions (inspired by Eats Well With Others):

  • pumpkin pizza dough
  • 1 yellow onion
  • ~7 cups of spinach (yes, really you need this much)
  • 1T olive oil
  • 1T curry powder
  • mozzarella cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 500*
  2. Roll out dough and cook 20-30 minutes or until browned and baked through
  3. While pizza is baking, thinly slice onion, saute in evoo for 20 minutes or until slightly browned
  4. Add curry and spinach and cook until wilted
  5. Spoon onion/spinach mix onto pizza dough
  6. Top with mozzarella
  7. Cook 10-15 minutes at 500*

 Oh yes, this was excellent!  I was worried about there being no sauce.  I was worried the spinach would be bland.  I was worried Joey would… actually I don’t know what I was worried he’d do but it turned out fabulous.  The curry flavor was just perfect and the dough, well the dough was beyond perfect.

Now if only Glee hadn’t been a re-run the night would have been even better, but it was pretty good as it was 🙂

What’s your favorite pizza combination?

    That looks inredible! Love ‘greens’ on my pizza.

    I think I might miss the sauce a bit since I’m a big fan of sauce =P

      I am too but the curry flavor made up for the sauce. Just this once, though.

      I love Hawaiian pizza but veggie is dear to my heart too.

    Ahhhh…..that pizza looks so freakin’ amazing! I am wary of pizzas with no sauces, but yours might convince me otherwise. 🙂

    You don’t like walnuts??! If I were there I would have happily eaten them for you. They’re one of my favorite nuts. 🙂

    I haven’t had pizza in forever but I LOVE pineapple on it. SO GOOD.
