So If you know me at all, you know I LOVE anything pumpkin. Pumpkins are one of the many reasons I LOVE October and fall. Sadly, this year, my October has been a little less pumpkin filled than normal.
No glitter pumpkins, they're still packed in a box with the rest of the Halloween decor.
No pumpkin candles.
No live pumpkins at my doorstep.
No pumpkin spice lattes (caffeine and I no longer get along)
No visits to the pumpkin patch
No pumpkin treats.....ok I did get pumpkin birthday cake earlier this month, but there's not been nearly enough pumpkin foods around here since.
Thankfully this weekend I did slightly remedy this situation. I still have no Halloween decor out (though there are cute little kindergarten pumpkin projects hanging in my classroom), but I do now have pumpkin treats. Friday night I hung out with my sister and Toni and we made Pumpkin Whoopie Pies. Yum. Since there was still half a can of pumpkin left and I woke up raring to go way too early this morning, I decided to bake a pumpkin pie. Double Yum. Now all I need is some pumpkin pasta or pumpkin risotto and my pumpkin treat fantasies would be pretty complete. Maybe. I believe that there's never enough pumpkin, but my October is feeling much better now.
