Pumpkin Oatmeal

This is another recipe from Hungry Girl but from a different book called Recipes and Survival Strategies for Guilt Free Eating in the Real World. I think I am addicted to her recipes. She has so many great ideas and her recipes are pretty tasty without all the fat and calories. I made this recipe for breakfast this morning and I loved how the pumpkin tasted in the oatmeal. It was definitely a good combo. This is a great recipe for Fall when pumpkins are suppose to be in season but it turns out a lot of grocery stores are having trouble getting pumpkin in. I was told when I was in Publix, that there were bad pumpkin crops so that is why they didn't have any. Apparently, they have been having trouble getting it in for the past 6 months! I did finally find my pumpkin at another grocery store but I hope they start getting more in soon, before Thanksgiving and Christmas. What a shame if there were no pumpkin pies!
