Anyways, getting off topic here (which I do way too much). I wanted to talk about fall in this blog.
Leaves changing colors, a slight chill in the air and never enough PUMPKIN is what makes fall the prefect season. I like to pretend that winter is not right behind because then we clearly wouldn’t enjoy fall!
I went to my friend’s wine party this past weekend and it was such a blast! We all know that there are way too many wine varieties out there so what better way than to host, or attend, a wine party and try a little of many!
My favorite was a medium dry Italian Reisling! But aside from the bottles upon bottles of wine, my friend, Lauren and her mom baked lots of yummy foods, too! One of which my favorites was pumpkin dip with Nilla Wafers (but they’d be delicious with animal crackers too)!
Here is a recipe that I found, thanks to How to Nest for Less:
• (1) 15oz pumpkin
• (1) 3.4oz vanilla instant pudding
• (1) 8oz Cool Whip
• 1 tbsp cinnamon sugar
• 1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice
• 1 tsp nutmeg
- Combine pudding, pumpkin and Cool Whip in a bowl
- Add spices, mix and cool in the refrigerator for an hour to set
- Serve with animal crackers or vanilla wafers or graham crackers
Consider yourself warned that this is EXTREMELY addicting. I found myself visiting this dip bowl far more than other options at my wine party… pretty sure I devoured maybe ½ of the bowl by myself.
