I know I said I wouldn't let this turn into a log of my daily workouts...but can I just tell you that I had the BEST run of the year today! The reason why.....it was a mere 68 degrees! It felt heavenly...I even had to wear a long sleeved shirt. At the end of the 4 miles I was begging for more...but thought I had better not push it. Tomorrow I might try to sneak another neighborhood in there to extend it just a little. This being said I am thinking of everything fall....one of my very favorite fall treats is the EASIEST pumpkin cookies you will ever make.

Don't let it fool you though, easy sometimes is better...they are good!

These cookies are dense rather than cakey like the regular homemade version of pumpkin cookies. One year while pregnant with Ryan I literally begged..... on my hands and knees for my sister Jessica to come over and make these for me .. weekly...okay, daily (I was on bedrest for 5 months!) They just scream Fall to me.

1 box pumpkin quick bread mix (Pillsbury)

1/2 c butter (softened)

1 egg white

3/4 c chocolate chips (more or less to taste...you know my opinion!)

Mix all ingredients together, mixture will be crumbly at first but come together after a few min. Add chocolate chips last. Drop by spoonfuls and flatten slightly. Bake at 320 for 12 min. on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
