Pumpkin Fluff

Pumpkin Fluff, 16 ounces of sugar free whip cream,(cool whip) 1box of sugar free pudding,(cheesecake), And 3/4 can of solid pumpkin, and a few sprinkles of Cinnamon. If the girls really want something a sweet treat. I make this and let them dip with apples.  I know this might seem like a Thanksgiving type desert but I am very much ready for pumpkins on the porch and ghosts hanging up.We make this anytime of year   The photo is of my Kaplin when he was a baby. :) I'm anticipating Fall.

Apple Cider in Crock pot
2 quarts of unsweetened apple cider
1 sliver of lemon peel
1/2 Teaspoon of all spice
1 Stick of Cinnamon
1/2 Teaspoon of whole cloves
Heat all and and let simmer on the stove for 10 minutes, then put in crock pot
and let simmer and strain before serving. Makes 16 servings Or you could look for sugar free cider in the store. It is alot less calories than a coffee with a donut.

Todays food holiday is Guacamole

Half of our family loves Guacamole, all the girls. I make it homemade for the girls and they will dip carrot sticks or celery. Of course they like Multi grain chips or pita chips. But I try to limit the chips because of the sodium. It is so easy to over eat on chips.  3 ripe Avocado's, 2 Roma tomato chopped, hand full of cilantro, juice from a lemon, and one small red onion. And alittle sea salt or garlic powder.  I had gotten this recipe from my Spanish friend/neighbor. I hope today on your journeys your able to have a snack that celebrates the holiday. Yummy!!! Plus a food processor helps, I cannot remember life before my processor.
