Happy Friday, pumpkins!
Wait…no, no, NO!!! Ok, I enjoy fall as much as the next pumpkin-obsessed foodie. I mean, it IS my favorite season, but this summer just went by WAY too fast! The weather here didn’t get too hot, the bugs weren’t that bad, and the summer produce? Well, I just haven’t had my fill yet! I’ve got a fridge FULL of blueberries, cucumber, and raspberries…and that’s still not stopping me from stuffing ma’ FACE with as many peaches and nectarines as I can find!
But herein lies the real problem. Like I said yesterday, I kinda rocked out in the kitchen last week and now I feel like I’m running out of time to share! Seriously, I can’t be the ONLY food blogger out there who feels the pressure…
So I’m gonna cross my fingers and pray that while a lot of you are already digging into your FIFTH can of pumpkin for the year, that you’ll also be grabbing up some of that discounted summer produce before it’s gone for good!

This is one of the THREE recipes I created over the weekend and while delicious down to the last finger-licking swipe of that dish, it’s actually a couple of rungs down on the excitement ladder. I don’t want to bombard you with too much in one post (like I’ve BEEN doing all WEEK) but as for the other TWO?
Well, let’s just say they deserve their own special DAY in the SUN! 😀
Got it? Ok, ok…here’s a little hint for ya that just happens to be a very #strangebutgood mix of the two. The other day, I took a cold leftover sweet potato and topped it with…
A sprinkle of cinnamon, some shredded zucchini, a handful of raspberries, a drizzle of creamy coconut yogurt sauce and a good glob of coconut peanut butter (only relevant in to the mission to clear out my nut butter stash!)
While some of you question my sanity for combining all these delicious flavors into ONE, I know you’ll all be excited to see them separately. So I’ll “see” you in TWO days…to celebrate the arrival of fall with a little summer
twist FLIP! 😉
