Clever title eh? When in doubt, just throw it all up there, right?
My big ‘eats’ disappointment this week was scheduling a special lunch date to Hobees so I could devour some seasonal carrot cake pancakes only to be told they didn’t serve them for lunch. Um say what? It’s a diner and you serve breakfast all day. Sigh. I ‘settled’ for sweet potato pancakes
This isn’t exactly What I Ate Wednesday, but I’m sure Jenn and Peas and Crayons won’t mind!
Guess what I’m doing tonight though? I’m meeting up with the gorgeous and sweet Shayla from The Good Life We are trying a new contemporary Indian restaurant called All Spice in the SF Bay Area (<—go ahead and click to see the menu!). It’s Shayla’s first foray into Indian food and I’m happy to lead her to the dark side…mwuahahahaha. We have already talked about ending the night with froyo. We’re well-balanced like that.
And in lieu of Amy and Jess’s 2nd Blogger Sweet Swap, I made something special for my paired-up-partner Elizabeth at Random Stupidness, I made something based on her desires. She noted she was a fan of chocolate – dark, no milk!—and, of course, pumpkin!
One of my favorite pumpkin recipes just happens to be the photo header in my blog and is courtesy of YumSugar.com.
So without further adieu, I show you Fluffy Pumpkin Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies:
You’ll have to click for the recipe, but note my substitutions:
- I did not have any nutmeg, so I just doubled my cinnamon – because you can never have enough cinnamon!
- I used 1.5 cups of dark chocolate chips (no milk)
- Yield was about 36 cookies (hard to know when your hubby keeps stealing them off the cooling rack!)
