One more day until Halloween. I know many are probably tired of the parade of Halloween lunches, but I just love them. You may actually see just one or two more even after trick or treating is over. I just can't help it! Today's lunch was a fun little witch theme.
We also made some fabulous pumpkin spice dip today. Well, actually it is adapted from a vegan pumpkin pie filling from The Family Kitchen, but since I am inept at making crusts, I just made the filling. Typically, we make a cream cheese based pumpkin dip, which is delicious, but this is so so good too! You can make as little or as much this version is great for breakfast or a snack. We served it with apple slices and graham crackers. Yum!
Ingredients - 1/2 cup pumpkin puree, 1/4 cup butter, 1/4 cup packed brown sugar, 1 tbsp real maple syrup, 1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice, 1 tsp lemon juice
Put all the ingredients in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 45-60 seconds. Stir to thoroughly combine. Serve with apples or other fruits and graham crackers.
In this lunch...
