It’s fall y’all!
I am having a hard time believing it but I guess I have no choice. I so don’t want to put away the shorts and flip flops! But, it is Alabama, and the falls means one day it’s sweatshirt weather and the next day it’s 90°. It will be that way until Christmas. O.I.A. (Only in Alabama)
I know, it’s crazy but I’m used to it.
There are some things I like about Fall. I love the squash that’s in season, watching Alabama football, making chili, and the state fair. Aside from that, I would rather it be pool weather year ’round.
This recipe was thrown together one afternoon when I was waiting on the kids to get home from school. I had a bunch of pumpkin puree that was given to me by a friend and I was trying to think of a good but somewhat healthy after school snack. I thought the banana would be a good binder for the consistency and taste – it worked just like I thought it would.
Pumpkin Nutella Dip
1/2 cup pumpkin, pureed (or canned pumpkin)
2 tbsp Nutella
1 large very ripe banana, pureed
1 tbsp honey
Combine everything with hand blender or whisk. Refrigerate for 30 minutes before serving.
Serve with apple slices, spread on toast, heck eat it with a spoon.
My son told me to bottle it and sell it to Publix.

This dip sounds so good. I’m not usually a big fan of pumpkin, but for some reason this fall, I’m really loving all the pumpkin recipes I’ve been trying. I’ve never used Nutella in any recipes either…I’d better get going!
