This past week has given us PERFECT autumn weather in Boston, that is until it didn’t.  Our 10 week old labrador puppy, Copley, has been rolling in the leaves and trotting down the crisp streets of Charlestown without a care in the world.  Until last night.  Enter torrential rain.  Apparently our pup does not like the cold drops of water coming from the sky.  Even while holding an umbrella over the little prince, he still is not having it.  This will change tonight.  Because I can’t handle another accident.  So we will walk outside…and he will learn to love the rain.  GOALS.

In other autumn news, I received my first jars of Nikki’s Coconut Butter this past weekend.  I have been reading great things about it for years, but never took the plunge.  When I saw that they were offering Pumpkin Spiced Donut as a flavor I was sold.  I ordered a jar of it along with a jar of the Vanilla Cake Batter.  My husband and I both eat a low carb diet, so this is the perfect sweet snack with under 10 carbs per serving.

We had guests coming over to see our new condo/meet Copley on Saturday night, so I whipped up a batch of Pumpkin Cookie Dough Balls using the Pumpkin Spiced Donut flavor.  They were a hit.  Perfect pumpkin spice flavor without overdoing it.  Also, the longer they stayed in the fridge the better they got.  By day 3, they were unreal and also GONE.

This week I’m going to whip up a batch of Pumpkin Spice Fudge Bites. So more to come on my journey with Nikki’s Coconut Butter.  But so far it’s been epic.

Hope everyone has a great day!  Wish me luck on forcing Copley’s new love affair with the rain…..
