Autumn Pumpkin Cream Cheese - Recipe

After a summer-long hiatus from the blogosphere, I have decided to kick this lovely season off with a very autumn-appropriate and delectable recipe. "Pumpkin cream cheese?! Woahhh," you say, with much uncertainty. I advise you to trust me, and succumb to the delicious flavours of fall, by stirring up these ingredients and spreading a thick layer of the stuff onto a toasted cinnamon bagel. Just...give in, okaaay! :)

Mash all ingredients together in a bowl, container, glass tupperware... Whatever vessel you please:

1 brick of Philadelphia light cream cheese
about 4 generous whopping spoonfuls of canned pumpkin puree
2 ish teaspoons worth of cinnamon
dash of nutmeg
just a spoonful of sugar (Mary Poppins style heheh)

Avocado Sushi Rolls - Recipe

All you need:
  • Nori sheets
  • 1/2 Avocado
  • Sushi Rice (1 cup)
  • 2 spoonfuls of Rice Vinegar
  • Wasabi + Soy Sauce
I recommend using one of those sushi rolling things as well! I found one in my house. It's do-able though if you do not have one, just roll carefully and tightly
Firstly, bring 1 cup of sushi rice and 1 1/2 cups of water with the 2 spoonfuls of rice vinegar to a boil
Then reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 12 min ish, stir every so often. After this, remove from heat and let stand covered for 5-7 min.

Place a nori sheet (seaweed) on your sushi roller, and throw down a layer of rice (not very much). Slice up your avocado. Place the innards of half the avocado on the side of nori closest to you, if you're rolling away from yourself. The rice should be sticky and thus be able to keep everything intact nicely.

Then roll away! It's so simple and you can basically put any ingredients you please in the roll... Serve with a dish of soy sauce and a bit of wasabi, depending how much wasabi flava you'd like!
