Menu Monday & Pumpkin Butter

002

Took me forever to make out this menu. Menu burn-out maybe? 🙂

We are going to make some yummy pumpkin butter to snack on this week. This is my favorite recipe for pumpkin butter. You can use a pumpkin from your garden, but I will have to use canned. Stupid squash bugs!

Pumpkin Butter

  • 1 (15 ounce) can 100% pure pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 1⁄3 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 3⁄4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

 

  1. In small sauce pan, combine pumpkin, applesauce, sugar, cinnamon and ginger.
  2. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, stirring often to prevent scorching, 45 min.
  3. or until mixture becomes very thick.
  4. Stir in lemon juice.
  5. Let cool, then spoon into tight-sealing container and refrigerate.
  6. Will keep in the refrigerator up to 2 weeks.

So, what are we eating this week?

Monday: Homemade Pizza

Tuesday: Grilled Steak, Baked Potatoes, & Salad

Wednesday: Grilled Chicken, Corn-on-the-Cob, & Potato Salad

Thursday: Beef Tips and Rice

Friday: Teriyaki Chicken

Saturday: Tacos & Refried Beans

Sunday: Hot Dogs, Baked Beans, & Coleslaw

It’s going to be a yummy week!

  1. Hi! Looks like yummy eating to me! I think we all get menu burn out at times. I have never had pumpkin butter but not real fond of pumpkin so I would probably go with apple butter. Have a good week. Nancy

  2. I am so happy to see you making blog posts again. I have missed reading them. Maybe this will inspire me to get back at it again. The pumpkin butter was so good. I definitely want to make some. Talk to you soon.
