Another year, another birthday. The third one in which I have been fortunate enough to see since I started this blog. Since I have outlived both my parents, I embrace my age as each day is a gift. I don’t try to botox away my wrinkles because for me they are reminders of my time here on earth. I am proud to shout my chronological age from the roof tops. But the strange thing is I have never actually felt any age. I have always felt, like ME! Eternally!

I have the best memories of going to the pumpkin patch with my kids when they were little. Picking out the perfect sized pumpkin and then eagerly carving them were all part of the Halloween festivities. Food is always a big part of the tradition, but often it’s not the most healthy. That’s okay to have a treat every now and again. But what if there was a delicious healthy salad that would pump up the jam in your party? This post will introduce you to the newest member of my pumpkin recipe arsenal!
