It's Pumpkin Season!

Boy oh boy, it's like foodie blogging Christmas! In case you only check my minuscule corner of the blogging world, the blogosphere is all a tither with the fact that pumpkin season is upon us again.

While I don't much like cold weather, I do love fall. I love pumpkin season, apple season, boot-wearing, sweater-styling weather. In the past 24 hours, I have consumed:

  • A pumpkin spice bagel

  • A pumpkin spice latte (I didn't like it as much as I thought I would)

  • A Shock Top pumpkin wheat beer

  • A decaf coffee with one shot of pumpkin spice (much better)

I have big plans to try the second type of pumpkin beer we bought, O'Fallen pumpkin beer, which is described as a pumpkin pie in a bottle. Yes, please. Today has been the perfect fall day: I started the day with free yoga, then used a groupon at a beauty school for a facial and back treatment. I also met my friend for the aforementioned coffee before taking to my kitchen to get all kinds of pumpkin baking done. I stockpiled pumpkin last year ... and haven't used it all. I have three cans left to consume before I fill the cabinet again with cheap, delicious pumpkin. I relish the challenge. Check back tomorrow to see all the tasty things I made!

I can tell you this, Napoleon is super psyched for pumpkin season.

So glad I could help you get your pumpkin on:) I fully support the baking of any and all pumpkin treats and am more than willing to be a test subject.
