Welcome Autumn with Pumpkin Fritters

This morning I was sadden to see my calendar reminder pop up announcing that today was the ‘First Day of Autumn’. With the daytime high was close to 90*F under mostly sunny skies the last thing on my mind was Autumn.  An adorable pumpkin filled with succulents and a Pumpkin Fritters recipe helped me welcome Autumn. I maybe out harvesting basil in my flip flops but this fun share will welcome Autumn.

Have you ever eaten fritters?  I’ve only had them at restaurants or  the county fair so I’m super excited to try this recipe.  There isn’t too much fat in this recipe but I may still try baking the batter rather than frying.  I’ll let you know if that works out.

[alert-note]About In The Raw[/alert-note]

Known as the REAL sweetening revolution.  Found of In The Raw Marvin Eisenstadt  was asked to help find a less-processed sugar to satisfy the health conscience patrons.  Marvin who joined the family business in 1956 became a world travelor in search of the perfect product. In the tropics this foodie entrepunior discovered turbinado sugar which is now known as ‘sugar in the raw’.  It wasn’t until the late 90’s when these healthy alternatives finally took off  starting with  the ‘little brown packages’ found at most coffee houses.  As the quest continued for a more healthy lifestyle by many Americans products like  Stevia In The Raw, Agave In The Raw, then Monk Fruit In The Raw, and now Sugar In The Raw Organic White were introduced. These are all very exciting options for those who want to make more natural and healthy beverage and food choices.

[alert-warning]I want to wish you all a very happy Autumn.  I hope you will share with me what you think about succulents in Autumn displays and maybe sure a favorite Autumn recipe in the comment section below.
