Pumpkin Fritters

 I love appetizers.  You could say that appetizer are my friend.  I would much rather graze on appetizers than actually have a plated meal prepared for me.  That is probably why I struggle with my weight.  Since I prefer to have bite size items to eat and pick at finger foods, it becomes a little more difficult to measure what I eat.

In the fall season and we are always looking for new, unique and great ideas to enjoy and share with our family that would be perfect for the season.  Here is a favorite pumpkin fritter appetizer recipe that I have found and enjoy immensely.
