My eldest daughter, the sweet girl that she is, has very peculiar taste buds. She wont touch a hot dog, or any meat for that matter. Peanut butter & jelly, forget it.
But Gustav's swiss cheese & white wine fondue!? By the bucket!
And pumpkin - anything pumpkin! Pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin pie of course!
So when at New Seasons today I saw this: Pumpkin Butter! Can I tell you that when I showed it to her today, she about thought she'd gone to heaven?! "Can I have some toast? Can I just put a spoon in it?" Ta, ta, ta, I am waiting till i buy bagels (tomorrow) :) You musnt spoil the pumpkin butter before its time.
I am just hoping that its qualifying for a vegetable. A little sugar never hurt anyone right? Made in Hood River, OR (home to many apple & pear trees & the gorge & windsurfing):
Pumpkin Butter - Earthy Northwest grown pumpkins and the sweet spices of cinnamon, clove, and cardamom give this classic its irresistible flavor.
Now my new find today that IS totally legit - is the Clif Kid Twisted Fruit - better than the fruit leather I buy / each "twisted fruit" is = to one fruit serving. THESE TASTE LIKE CANDY! And here's the ingredients: Organic Apple Puree, Organic Apple Juice Concentrate, Malic Acid, Organic Flavors, Pectin, Colored With Fruit And Vegetable Juice. I just bought a box of 18 online (make that two because 5 of these were eaten tonight & I just put another one in her lunchbox for tomorrow). I am HIGHLY recommending - I will be chowin' on these!!!! So yummmm!
