Scrambled Pumpkin

Posted Feb 10 2012 3:43pm

Ever have one of those days where you are pretty sure you should not be allowed in the kitchen? Dropping things, spilling things, putting chili powder in the mix instead of cinnamon, forgetting flour. Yeap. A clear sign I should have stayed away this morning.

Instead I ended up with this – Pumpkin scrambled eggs. 

I didn’t mean for it turn into scrambled eggs – I was aiming for pumpkin pancakes. I went wrong somewhere along the way. Maybe it was the chili powder I put in the first batch?

So I attempted my second batch of “pumpkin pancakes” and instead ended up with scrambled pumpkin.

Was it good? Well, I ate it. It was spiced perfectly with cinnamon and nutmeg, the texture was definitely scrambled eggs but it tasted like pumpkin pie. It was interesting, to say the least. Would I have it again for breakfast? Yes, why not I love pumpkin pie flavored things. It was a great change for the usual scrambled eggs filled with spinach, veggies, cheese. I’m not going to say these were the best things ever but it was fun to have something different.

If only I had maple syrup… but PB2 came to the rescue

Yes the PB2 made it even better. If you would like to recreate my mistake in the kitchen just crack some eggs (2-3), I used 1 egg and 1/3 cup of egg whites and 1/2 cup of pumpkin, along with cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger.


My workout consisted of a shoulder day. Let me say, Fridays at the gym is the best, I believe this should become my leg day at the gym. Completely empty. These are the days I love the gym. But I can give you a host of reasons why the gym also gives me the heebie jeebies

  • watching people not wipe down the machines
  • The floor mats for everyones use
  • That person who supersets for 45 minutes on 4 different machines that you need.
  • The people you see and think “They’re going to have serious back issues in a few years”
  • Creepers who stare and follow you around
  • Seeing someone go from the elliptical, then the stair stepper, then back to the elliptical, then to the arc trainer, and onto the bike, and maybe the treadmill. (I see this all the time! from the SAME people!)
  • People who place all their weight on their arms when using the stair stepper

I consider it my entertainment for the day.

I’m off to study for my nursing license exam – 6 days until the big test. 


What was your last mistake in the kitchen that turned out all right?

Do you have any gym pet peeves?
