Let's make a deal. You can have this delicious Fall inspired pumpkin recipe, but in exchange I need something from you.
Isn't that how all great friendships work - give and take. I would normally just invite you over for some coffee or wine and we would chat for hours, but seeing that you are there and I am here, I don't think that would work out. But if you want to stop reading and grab that drink, I am certainly okay with that.
So let me talk up this recipe a little bit. It starts by having us multi-tasking on the oven. Roasting the pumpkin, chicken and parsnip all at the same time, giving us some time to sit back and do our favorite momma activity - have a quick cap-nap, stare at a blank wall, drink another cup of coffee. The time is yours, use it wisely for something that isn't on your to-do list. After the roasting happens, the next steps are simple and painless. All you have to do is scape the warm pumpkin off the skin, dump everything into a blender and puree for a couple seconds. Then you are done. Check and check. A seasonal puree that is loaded with goodness through and through. A spicy, buttery puree that your little one will gobble up.
Now, what I need from you. Advice. That's it. I wouldn't ask for anything too big.
I need some advice on how to make time in my life for working out. It is just.not.happening! I feel like since the new baby came, I just can't seem to find the time, energy or motivation to put on my gym clothes and get my sweet on. So let me ask you - how do you make time for yourself? How do you motivate yourself when the kids are down for naps and the only thing you want to do is take a long nap yourself? When do you workout? Morning or Night? What advice can you give me?
Go ahead and leave your comments below - give it to me straight.
