let me be completely honest with you for a moment.

i spent $4.55 on a grande non-fat pumpkin spice latte (no whip) at starbuck's yesterday for a post hot yoga/ pre-work treat, and it was such a letdown.

is it just me, or were those better last year? maybe it's my own fault for not getting the whip...but from now on i think i'll be sticking to my regular homemade coffee (with cinnamon) and saving my precious five dollars.

and honestly, these whole wheat pumpkin gnocchi from jessica's blog are out of control. three ingredients, two minutes to prepare and three minutes to cook? why yes, yes i will.

for a single serving, i basically put 2 heaping tablespoons of pumpkin in a bowl with 4 tablespoons of whole wheat flour and combined until a dough. if you think it's too sticky, just add flour! i also added some cinnamon and allspice, rolled it out into a log and cut it with a knife until it looked like barbara's peanut butter puffins. (if you don't know what those are, you should probably go buy a box before you come back to read this blog again...) after all that hard work mixing and rolling for two minutes, pop those babies in boiling water for another three or until they float to the top!

strain the water, put them in a bowl and cover them with butter, brown sugar and just a touch of maple syrup (or olive oil + asiago like jessica) and oh. my. god.

oh, and another thing - if i promise to bake you a pie, will you buy me this adorable little pie carrier? please and thank you :)
