Pumpkin Butter Granola

Last night as Ryan and I watched The Sing Off, I did a little baking, which turned into lots of snacking. Fortunately I had a bit of the end result leftover to enjoy for breakfast today.

Homemade granola is so easy and definitely cheaper than store-bought granola. I’m quite a fan!

Workout

Let’s fly through today’s workout recap! It was an upper body day in the gym and I completed three sets of 15 repetitions of the following exercises:

  • Superset One: Bicep curls + Ryan’s awesome shoulder move
  • Superset Two: Tricep pull downs + Upright rows
  • Superset Three: Low pulls + Chest press
  • Superset Four: Tricep extensions + Mac raises
  • Superset Five: Incline bicep curls + Push ups

I love supersets! They keep my heart pumpin’ and my workout moving fast.

Te Quiero, Amarillo

On our way home from the gym today, the song Bailamos by Enrique Inglesias came on the radio.

Ryan and I were being tools in the car and singing the song in our sexy Enrique voices (we have a gift) when the chorus came on. While I opted not to sing some of the Spanish words that I couldn’t understand, Ryan plunged in and went for the gold.

Only he came up without a medal.

Actual words:

Bailamos! Let the rhythm take you over…
Bailamos!
Te quiero, amor mio

Ryan’s version:

Bailamos! Let the rhythm take you over…
Bailamos!
Te quiero, amarillo

Enrique was saying, “I want you, my love.” I took a bit of Spanish in my day and knew that Ryan’s wonderfully romantic version said, “I want you, yellow.”

Apparently someone has a strong affinity for the sunshiny color.

love yellow

Not that I blame him

The best lyrics mix up I’ve ever heard came from my sister. One Christmas we were singing this Christmas classic:

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, 
Jack Frost nipping on your nose, 
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir, 
And folks dressed up like Eskimos.

Leslie’s version went like this:

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, 
Jack Frost nipping on your nose, 
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir, 
And folks dressed up like Kokonos.

Um, what?

When I asked her what, exactly, Kokonos were she said, “I don’t know. I never really thought about it.”

You better believe my family now always sings “Folks dressed up like Kokonos” whenever we hear that song around Christmastime.

    BAHAHA. That is hilarious! I love this post 🙂 Prob because I am THAT person who messes up lyrics to make it be what I THINK they’re singing. Hehe.

    That granola does sound good….I gotta take the plunge and make some on my own! THanks for the inspiration, girl 🙂

    OMG I love mixed up lyrics!

    The oldie song that goes
    ‘Don’t go around tonight,
    Well, it’s bound to take your life,
    There’s a bad moon on the rise.’

    Well, I ALWAYS thought it said
    ‘there’s a bathroom on the right!’
    I finally googled it one day and realized I was’t the only one who thought it, so I didn’t feel too silly 🙂

    When I was little, my mom said I also used to sing an 80’s song, “Everytime you go away, you take a piece of me with you” as “Everytime you go away, you take a piece of MEAT with you”

    Typical, me. Can’t forget to take the food.

    Have you thought about trying this with apple butter? I got some a couple weeks ago at McBee Farms in SC and everybody at my house loves it on toast (homemade honey wheat bread this morning)- but I bet it’s even better in granola! 🙂

    I ALWAYS mess up song lyrics. I most definitely thought that Price’s “Raspberry Beret” was “strawberry champagne”! hahaha Becuase what the heck is a raspberry beret?! Of course strawberry champagne does not make sense when sung with the lyrics “the kind you find in a second hand store” but that really never dawned on me until my best friend pointed out just how wrong I was lol 🙂

  6. Anne @strawberryjampackedlife.com says

    I was just talking about mixed up lyrics yesterday. I really hated the song “If I Die Young”, because I thought it said “If I die young, bury me inside of you.” I thought it was super creepy and stupid. Turns out the words are “If I die young, bury me in satin.” Oh . . . . I always liked the melody, just hated the lyrics!

  7. says

    haha! The lyric mix up with your sister reminds me of my aunt, who for 45 years thought the line to “winter wonderland” was “we’ll perspire, as we sit by the fire” instead of “conspire.” In her defense, it makes sense since a fire would be hot but I still laugh thinking about that one. Ryan’s is pretty bad though. I love you, yellow. haha

    Another Christmas song mixup – one day my young niece proclaimed that we should not be singing the song ‘Joy to The World’ because it wasn’t very nice. We asked her what part wasn’t nice and she said, “You know … Joy to the world, the Lord is scum”! Needless to say, we quickly set her straight, but we couldn’t help chuckle a bit.

    At first I thought your title read “PEANUT Butter Granola”, and I was a little confused because I could’ve sworn you had made that before. Then as I started reading, I realized it was pumpkin, and I got really excited. This sounds so good!

    The song thing makes me laugh because I make up words to songs all the time. Half the time they don’t even make sense. 🙂

    That granola looks great! Most granola is way too sugary for my liking, but your recipe looks pretty reasonable. I don’t have any pumpkin butter though. What would you recommend using in place of the pumpkin butter?

    Hilarious!! My most recent goof up is Lady gaga’s Just dance. I never understood why she opened the song with “Red Wine” – I always went along with it. Now I know she actually says “Red One” – her producer 🙂

      (Quote)

        • Dukebdc says

          Seriously–I heard it this morning while getting ready for work and was still singing, “red wine.” Because the next set of lyrics starts with “I’ve had a little bit too much….” don’t they? So it kind of makes sense? Or just to me? 🙂

          My classic lyric mix up as a kid was due to Mom’s penchant for easy listening radio stations. Sade was really big then, and her hit “Smooth Operator” played a lot. However, I thought the lyrics were, “smooth out the red eye.” My family traveled a lot, so it made sense to me–red eyes were rough trips! 😉

    I totally think I thought it was amarillo in the song too! Haha! My fiance thought in the Billy Joel song, “Only the good die young,” was “only the good times roll.” I started singing along to the song once and he didn’t know that it was only the good die young!

    I am notorious for messing up lyrics….sometimes they aren’t even real words, I just make sounds that I think sound like the words they are saying. For example; Rhianna’s “Cheers” I don’t know what they say after “cheers to the freaking weekend…I’ll drink to that” pretty much everything after that is made up words by me 🙂

    But, my BF will never let me forget the time I sang “here we are now in containers” for Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit….the actual lyric is “here we are now…ENTERTAIN us” —actually had to look this up because I STILL can’t ever remember what it is supposed to say.

    Hillarious, I think making up lyrics is so funny but everyone seems to do it! A few years ago I caught my sister singing “I can see clearly now that Lorraine has gone…” she had no idea who Lorraine was and was completely mystified when I informed her it was actually “now that the rain has gone.”

    Good times.

    My boyfriend Tom comes up with the most hilarious lyrics to songs…I swear, he just makes up words and then puts them in.
    He is constantly singing that song “we’re gonna party like, it’s 2012”, except he always goes: “we’re gonna party like, it’s nineteen seventy twelve” I have no idea why he thinjs that makes sense. 😛
    Also, when he sings the african opening bit from “the circle of life”, that lion king song, it makes me laugh so much! 😀 Total. Jibberish.

    So my bf’s mom is Cuban and lives in FL with his dad who’s from NJ… his dad was learning spanish and what better way to learn than by Spanish love songs, right?
    Well he was walking around a party they hosted singing lyrics to one of the Spanish love songs that had recently played on the radio.. only he was singing (don’t judge me for mis spelling) “mama me” not “ama me” –> he was walking around singing “Suck Me” instead of “Love Me” LOL the whole family jokes about that one til this day 🙂 🙂

    My best friend and I used to totally mess up Shakira’s lyrics in Whenever, Wherever

    I’ll be there and you’ll be near
    And that’s the deal my dear

    There over, here under
    You’ll never have to wonder
    We can always play by ear
    But that’s the deal my dear

    We couldn’t figure out what in the world she was saying for “there over, here under” and for some reason we just started singing “the ramba, the samba, the chimi-chimichanga” instead. lol

    “We come from the land of the ice and snow
    from the midnight sun where the hot springs blow.”

    His version:

    “We come from the land of the ice and snow
    where you don’t eat snow where the huskies go.”

    I was like “huh?” He was 11, convinced he was right, and very rational about it. He merely said, “Well, EVERYBODY knows you don’t eat the yellow snow! Duh!”

    I used to always sing ‘take a load off, Granny’ instead of ‘take a load off, Fannie’ to the song ‘The Weight’ by The Band 😀 However, I discovered a commonly misheard lyrics website & fixed that!

    Forgive me if someone already asked this- but can you find pumpkin butter pretty easily? I’ve only ever seen it once, and it was in a health food store in Victoria, BC! (Of course I bought it!) I’ve never seen it anywhere. Or maybe you make it at home?

    Oh my goodness. I am laughing so hard I’m crying. I sing the wrong lyrics ALL. THE. TIME. My husband is always calling me out. I wish I could think of one. That Aerosmith argument about “Dude looks like a lady” or “Do the lucky lady” HILARIOUS!!

    Okay, these comments made my night. The “Shamu is a serious whale” and “here we are now, in containers” totally cracked me up. When I was a kid, I was POSITIVE that Prince’s(?) “I would die for you” said “apple dapple you.” Next time you hear it, you won’t be able to UNhear “apple dapple”.

    For the song, “It’s like my iPod’s stuck on replay”…my 6 year sings, “It’s like my eyball’s stuck on a plate”!

    I love that song! And I won’t even tell you what I used to think the lyrics were to La Bamba. I am older and more familiar with Spanish so I think I got it now. No more embarrassing sing-a-longs.

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew
    of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my
    newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
