Pumpkin Rolls and Blueberry Smoothies

I had a wonderful Thanksgiving with my sister (and her family), my husband and my children.  Having the people I love more than anyone else in one place for three days was a spectacular gift that I truly appreciated. 🙂

While watching football on Sunday, I baked a variation of  Bonnie’s Sweet Potato Crescents from Recipes Happen, using pumpkin puree instead of sweet potatoes.  It worked well and my family has decided that recipe is a keeper.  Thank you Bonnie!

24 hours later, and this is all I have left. 😦

My sister sent me home with lots of frozen fruit: blueberries, raspberries, and peaches.

Yesterday for breakfast, I whipped up Blueberry Banana smoothies.  Following Kristen’s lead at Farm Fresh Feasts, I slipped in some chopped kale (before the kids walked into the room 😉 ).  They didn’t notice, it used my kale, and greatly increased the vitamin content in our breakfast.  A win all around!

In my day job, the end of the year is my busiest time of year.  And I’m not even in retail, I’m an estate planning attorney!  Go figure!   My point is to warn you I may be less prolific at blogging for the next few weeks, but I’m not gone and haven’t lost interest.

Maybe I should ask Santa for a few extra hours in each week….

  1. YUM! 🙂
    Looks fantastic to me! Mine went quick, too!

  2. Woot! I’m very glad you used up kale! I just rearranged my veggie/fruit freezer and located a few bags of pumpkin (in addition to the pumpkins under the table) so I can do this, too.
