It’s time for another round of What I Ate Wednesday – I’m pretty excited to share my latest fall recipe this week!
Before we get to the rest of my eats, here’s the star of the show:
Pumpkin Spice Cream Cheese!
So delicious. And so easy to make. No need to get it from Dunkin Donuts or Trader Joe’s! What’s the secret? Pumpkin butter! It’s basically a two to one ratio of cream cheese to pumpkin butter and a bit of pumpkin spice. Here’s the recipe!
Pumpkin Spice Cream Cheese
Makes enough for 2 bagels.
- 4 tbsp of cream cheese
- 2 tbsp pumpkin butter (recipe here)
- 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- Let cream cheese soften at room temperature for about 30 minutes (makes it easier to mix).
- Add the pumpkin butter and pumpkin pie spice and stir to combine.
Breakfast was a delicious sesame bagel from New York Bagels topped with pumpkin spice cream cheese. It was amazing after my 3.5 mile run! (By the way, if you missed Monday’s running post, check it out and enter the giveaway!)
Lunch was a chopped spinach salad with apple, cheddar cheese, chicken, and walnuts. The first salad that I ever liked was from this place called Chop’t in DC. Basically, they chop up all of the ingredients really small so that you get a piece of everything in each bite. My recreation wasn’t quite the same, but it was decent.
Finally, I ended the night with a glass of sauvignon blanc and the presidential debate. And that’s what I ate
Wednesday Tuesday! I’m off to Las Vegas tomorrow for a fun filled wedding weekend and, knowing the bride, lots of delicious food!
