Still Alive

We're all still alive here... not much has happened this past week. Thank goodness. All the dogs are doing wonderful, no gum eating incidents this week. I have a big paper due for nursing school this coming up week. So I've been spending a lot of time doing that.   
Has anyone tried the pumpkin bagel with pumpkin cream cheese at Einstein's Bagel?! Mmm so good. Except for the fact that the cream cheese cost $1.50! And the bagel only $0.99! What's up with that. I can buy a tub of cream cheese for that price. So I found a great recipe for pumpkin cream cheese on the bog Pinch My Salt. I have not tried it yet, but by looking at the recipe it sounds pretty darn good. Here's the recipe:

Pumpkin Spice Cream Cheese Spread

4 oz. cream cheese, softened
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
1/4 cup canned pumpkin
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1. In a small bowl, beat softened cream cheese, sugar, and syrup til creamy.
2. Add pumpkin, spices and vanilla and beat til smooth.
3. Refrigerate for at least an hour.
4. Enjoy!
