Over the weekend the weather here in Northeast Ohio dropped significantly, causing this gal to go all OHMYGOD IS IT FALL YET?!
Autumn is, without a doubt, my most favorite season ever and, naturally, one of my favorite things about fall is pumpkin flavored, well, pretty much everything. This is no Jilly Come Lately pumpkin thing either — when I was a kid, my mom took me to the local pie shop in town and I was allowed to pick out any pie I wanted and I picked out pumpkin. I was, like, five years old.
As such, while grocery shopping over the past few days my items started to take on a particular theme.
Let’s see, we have Pumpkin Ice Cream and Pecan Pumpkin Instant Oatmeal (I first tried this about a year ago when I was visiting Sissy and my BIL and they had it. As soon as I saw it at Trader Joe’s yesterday I snapped up not one but two boxes), Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer, Pumpkin Pie yogurt, and Pumpkin Spice English Muffins.
I will also confess to spending much of the weekend attempting to track down the new limited edition Pumpkin Spice Oreos. One store (yes, I checked multiple shops. I MAKE NO APOLOGIES FOR THIS) had the spot on the shelf reserved for said cookies but didn’t actually have them in stock yet.
I may need a Pumpkin Spice Intervention.
Love from the ashes,
