A Couple of Things Pumpkin

Yesterday when I got home, there was a mysterious package on the front step.  I couldn’t remember if I had ordered anything or not…is that a bad thing?? Anyways, I love getting packages, especially when there is a surprise inside.  I quickly opened up the package to find my winnings from the Dunkin Donuts #ddkcup Twitter contest…Pumpkin K-Cups!

They asked participants to tweet why they should be one of the first to receive the Pumpkin K-Cups.  I tweeted, and I ended up winning.  What a great little treat!  I can’t wait to try these out.

In the spirit of pumpkin, I really wanted to try a new-to-me pumpkin breakfast.  Yesterday, I saw that Laura from Sprint  2 the Table and Meg from A Dash of Meg had both made a pumpkin scramble.  Trying sweet eggs had been something on my to-do list for a couple of weeks now, and they both swore that this dish was amazing…so I had to try it.

Well, they were completely right!  This dish is softer than typical scrambled eggs, has a slightly sweet and pumpkin pie-like taste and texture, and is just plain delicious.

I made a couple of adaptions to Meg’s original recipe.  Here is how I made my batch:

Pumpkin Scramble

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup liquid egg whites
  • 1/2 cup plain canned pumpkin
  • 1 packet stevia
  • 1 sprinkle of cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp raw oats
  • 1 tsp-1Tbsp peanut or almond butter
Directions:
Spray a microwave safe bowl with nonstick cooking spray.   Place the egg whites, pumpkin, stevia, and cinnamon in the bowl and mix thoroughly.
Cook in the microwave for 2 minutes, stir, then cook for 1 more minute.  Top the pumpkin and egg mixture with the oats and the nut butter.
Enjoy!  There is no way that you won’t ;)

Brian and I had another little surprise waiting for us on Facebook…some of our save-the-date photos were posted!

Honestly, we love them all and do not know how we will ever choose!

Do you get that “pumpkin fever” as soon as fall hits?

I totally get pumpkin fever! I could eat it all year round, but try to save it for fall so it stays special :)

If you are married/engaged…how did you pick your save the date photo!?

Brian and I are really going to struggle with this!

  1. I love that everyone is making the sweet scrambles!!! I never thought to microwave it… you may have just changed my life. :)

  2. cutest pictures. I need to make that pumpkin scramble. sounds delicious!

  3. Your pictures are adorable! I really like the last one (though they’re all really cute!) I love pumpkin stuff too… I’ve been holding off because its such a cool-weather comfort food and our weather has stayed in the 80s though it has dipped into the 60s in the early morning, late evenings!

    • Thanks so much!! :) I know, luckily it has been cool in the mornings so the pumpkin feels appropriate, but I totally understand wanting to wait until it is truly “fall”!!

  4. this looks amazing, hun! thank you so much for trying it! you got me craving it now :)
