Turkey Sandwiches

Mommy went shopping today and came across a coupon that would save you 5.00 if you bought 5 packages of lunch meat. Since we were going to be getting some turkey lunch meat anyways she decided to take advantage of the coupon and I am now set for quite a few sandwiches ! Today I had a real simple sandwich (turkey, romaine lettuce, mayo, mustard and black pepper on a sub roll) but it tasted awesome to me ! What kind of turkey sandwich do you like having?

Tacos Tonight

We wanted something easy tonight so we’re having ground beef tacos. I love how Lawry’s taco seasoning* tastes in this, it’s a shame that all the stores around town have stopped selling it (just have to order it online now). We’re having radish slices, chopped cilantro, chopped lettuce, and avocado as toppings to try and make it a little healthier but still tasty. When it comes to tacos though, healthy or not, they’re a freaking awesome dish to eat !

*I wasn’t paid in any form to mention Lawry’s.

Frosty Pumpkin Pie

Ingredients

  • 2 cups frozen reduced-fat vanilla yogurt, softened (used Mayfield Lowfat Frozen vanilla yogurt)
  • 1 reduced-fat graham cracker crust (9 inches) (used a crust that wasn’t reduced-fat)
  • 1 cup cooked or canned pumpkin (used canned pumpkin)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (used table salt)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 carton (8 ounces) frozen reduced-fat whipped topping, thawed (used full-fat Cool-Whip)

Directions

  1. Take the frozen yogurt and spread it out evenly in the crust. Place it in the freezer for 30 minutes. During those 30 minutes, take a mixing bowl out and stir the following ingredients together until combined: pumpkin, sugar, pumpkin pie spice, salt and ginger. Fold the whipped topping into the pumpkin mixture (I actually had to stir to make sure everything was off the bottom of the bowl but I did it carefully). After 30 minutes has passed, pull the crust out of the freezer and spread the whipped topping mixture over the yogurt and place the pie back in the freezer for 6 hours or overnight (I chose to let it sit in the freezer overnight). Take the pie out 20 minutes before you plan on cutting it into individual portions.

Yields: 8 slices

October is finally here !!! I love Halloween so October makes me giddy. Unfortunately, it’s hotter than it usually is this time of year so the only way to make it feel like fall is through food and what I watch. You can taste the classic pumpkin pie flavor in this and the frozen yogurt pairs perfectly with it. The graham cracker crust is a nice contrast to the soft and creamy pie filling. This is a great no-bake pie that’ll make you feel like fall is here even if the weather still says it’s summer-time.
