In the winter, I usually crave hot breakfasts. Oatmeal with applesauce and peanut butter, eggs of all sorts, or pancakes. Recently, I haven’t been eating particularly well, so I’ve been trying to get a little “insurance” at breakfast to make up for the Pad Thai at lunch and burger, fries, and a shake at dinner. Yep. That was yesterday.

Here’s one more root vegetable recipe before we switch over to asparagus and salad greens.

For breakfast on Sunday, we went pumpkin crazy. We started with homemade pumpkin spice lattes. Well, I guess they were really pumpkin spice cafe au laits, but you could make lattes if you happen to have an espresso maker.
