Cranberries

Me I love cranberries. Cranberries in food, and cranberry scented bath products and cranberry scented candles and cranberry colored shirts. I am very excited that we have a new cranberry bread this fall Cranberry Pecan Bread. Today I found the perfect topping for a batch of Cranberry Pecan Muffins:

Crazy for Cranberry Cream Cheese
1 8oz package low fat cream cheese at room temp.
zest of 1 orange
2 tbsp orange juice
1/4 cup low fat vanilla yogurt
1/2 cup whole berry cranberry sauce
1/4 cup finely chipped dry cranberries.

In a food processor or electric mixer combine the cream cheese, zest, juice, yogurt and cranberry sauce until smooth. Fold in dried cranberries and zest. Frost Muffins.

Yum.

You could also make Nana's Apple cake w/whole fresh cranberries vrs. the apples and top Nana's w/this too.

Less than 3 weeks until Halloween! Poor Patrick wanted to go to his school's Family Halloween party tonight but he has been having a few super bad asthma days so I had to keep him home from school today so no party tonight.

Since I don't have a TS party next Friday, I was thinking maybe that would be a good night to do something Halloween/Fall-ish. There are lots of activities around here...maybe we can find something fun to do.
