Pumpkin Pie BYOgurt + WIAW

Some things make being on the road all week a little better.

 

 

Check out the Roasted Pumpkin in the top left corner of this screen shot of today’s FoodBuzz Top 9its my roasted pumpkin from this post!!!  :)

 

Another thing that makes a long week brighter is my favorite weekly event – Jenn @ Peas and Crayons‘ What I ate Wednesday.  Here’s my WIAW (technically Tuedsay… but whatever).

 

 

Breakfast #1:

 

Pumpkin Zucchini Muffin... recipe coming soon to a blog near you!

 

 

 

Breakfast #2:

Remember the Sweet Potato BYOB Greek Yogurt?  Same idea, same Sky mag (the new one wasn’t out until the flight home – SJP looks amazing in it!), different flavors.

 

Pumpkin Greek Yogurt

 

Pumpkin Greek Yogurt with Fage.  I think the secret is using a thick yogurt (this may also help when getting through security!) and not being afraid to add spices/flavors.  Shout out to almond extract and ginger in this cup.  YUM.

You should have see the guys next to me on the plane wondering WTF I was doing taking multiple pics of my BYOgurt. :)

Full recipe at the end of this post.

 

The St. Louis airport was especially festive after the Cardinals big World Series win!

 

 

Lunch:

Lunch today was from a deli in the bottom of an office building.  It is barely worth mentions and certainly not worth picturing.  Over-salted but otherwise flavorless vegetable soup and a dry roll.

 

 

I would have rather had my Wild Mushroom Soup from last week:

 

 

 

Snacks: 

Unpictured pretzels and an apple on the plane.  I did get a shot of a gorgeous sunset.

 

 

 

Dinner:

Totally made up for lunch.

My boss and I had to work late.  Since we were at the airport already, we decided to check out One Flew South in the ATL airport.  It was recently featured in Food & Wine!

 

 

There weren’t any vegetarian options on the menu, but they did have tofu in a salmon dish.  I asked the server if they would make a tofu-only dish and they surprised with me an amazing tofu-veggie saute.  It included sweet potato straws, butternut squash, snow peas, carrots, fennel, spinach, and shittake mushrooms over a parsnip puree.  Absolutely delicious.

 

Dessert was fantastic – Banana Pudding with ‘Nilla Wafers.  So much so that I forgot to take a picture until there was barely a bite left in the jar.

 

I had NO idea airport food could be this good!

Pumpkin Pie Greek Yogurt

 

Mix all ingredients together in bowl or recycled yogurt container.  For best results, let refrigerate 1-2 hours or overnight to allow flavors to meld.

Add toppings as desired.  Mine included: pomegranate seeds and these Cardamom Roasted Pumpkin Seeds.

Get through security and enjoy your yogurt-pie as a reward!

What is your favorite seasonal flavor?  Eggnog?  Hot Chocolate?  A pie of sorts?

What airport do you think has the best food?

    Yes! Pumpkin flavored yogurt is the best…well, almost as good as my pumpkin flavored tofu, which I can call “mousse” because I want to.

    Great minds think alike….mine just now without the dairy. :)
