I felt Fall this morning!!! I wanted to run outside and dance on the lawn. I feel a spring in my step and a renewed sense of energy. I am so excited I cannot wait to take it all in this weekend.
I know that for many Summer is their favorite time of the year and that winter doldrums set in once the biting chill and winds of Fall come but for me it is the opposite, I relish that. Summer and the heat actually makes me depressed.
I have seen pumpkins and gourds and Indian corn since the last week of August and I did try very hard not to feel the pull of them when at the store this week but I could not resist. These are a few of my favorites.
Thankfully I was able to run from the candy corns. For a person that loves sugar as much as I do I just could not get a bag, I would have eaten half of them before I got home.
I have also been baking up a storm and trying out new pumpkin recipes. I never tire of the taste of pumpkin, I really think I could eat it everyday, along with my other staples of grilled cheese, pizza and pasta. Sadly my husband does not share my enthusiasm for that diet.
Tell me, what are you plans for the weekend? Will you be baking, reading a good book, doing a little work, traveling, spending time with family and friends?
I hope that you enjoy your time whatever you do!
And if a chill sets in and you would like to try a little something different that I hope you try this Pumpkin Pie White Hot Chocolate. I made this last year and it is scrumptious!
