Yes, it is that time. Pumpkin season. That means pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin lattes, pumpkin ice cream & pumpkin oatmeal. Caribou Coffee has a pumpkin latte that is every bit as good as the one made by the people with the green straws that aren’t gluten-free-friendly. I had my first pumpkin latte just last week and it was phenomenal! I wanted another later in the week, but it was hot outside & I don’t see pumpkin making a good iced latte.
I just checked my pumpkin stash and I have 3 large cans in my pantry! Score! I knew stocking up last year was the way to go. After the shortage, I couldn’t risk being without again. Jon has been begging for banana bread – I think he is going to get pumpkin bread instead. Perhaps some of this:
Dark chocolate pumpkin loaf. Enough said.
Pumpkin raisin bread. A childhood favorite.
Oh, how could I forget, my pumpkin raisin scones!!
Think I have enough pumpkin to make them all?
Hannah is recovering nicely from her appendectomy last weekend and went back to school on Thursday. Phew! Hopefully we are on the mend now. This week should be a little calmer & easier to cook. I also planned a little better for meals, so we should be eating better, too. It is amazing how long it takes to catch up.
