Lovely Pondering

raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
brown paper packages tied up with string
these are a few of my favorite things

Lots of pumpkin love: Spiced Pumpkin Yogurt Parfait with a Quinoa Raisin Walnut topping

I don’t think Thailand even has a pumpkin season, but I’ve been eating a lot of steamed pumpkins lately, simply because I love them so much. Due to an overflowing amount of steamed pumpkins in the fridge, however, I decided to make a breakfast using pumpkin, and just like the Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal, it was a stunner of a recipe. 
Mash some steamed pumpkin and add almond milk to it as neccessary until it becomes more of a mash than a thick paste. Add cinnamon, cardamom, herbs de provence (italian seasoning or oregano is a fine substitute), ground cloves and ginger, to taste. 
Layer the parfait cup first with the pumpkin mixture, and then add a layer of a mixture of greek yogurt and low fat unsweetened yogurt (so that it’s not as thick), and then layer it again with the pumpkin mixture
Top with chopped toasted walnuts, raisins and red quinoa!
