Is it just me, but does anyone else profess their undying love for pumpkin?
My kid and husband have said…”Yah, Pumpkin is alright I guess.”
How are we a family unit? **Smacks to head**
Fall season is officially upon us in T-minus whatever days. (It’s close, very close) and this is when everything pumpkin starts to falleth (make sure to talk spit when you say that).
Being in Louisiana means when it hits 70 degrees, my Hawaiian butt can bust out the boots, scarves, hats, gloves and head down to Starbucks at the PX Exchange (THANK GOD, because the nearest one off post is an hour away). Sipping on my Pumpkin flavored super caffeinated concoction while reveling in all that is about to happen.
First of all, just kidding. I do wait until it’s a bit colder before bringing out all the cold weather apparel.
Second, back to Pumpkin. Duh, this is serious people.
Release the Pumpkin Kraken kind of thing inside my soul fires up in a very shameless and gluttonous way. While everyone is busy looking at the changing of something in nature, I’m looking at recipes or store signs with the glorious orange ball of yummy. (or can, lets be real, the can of pumpkin).
I don’t care if it’s a cookie, pie, cake, loaf, cheesecake, donut, crepe, pancake, roasted pumpkin seeds or muffins. It’s my Romeo. (Do not be alarmed Prince Charming.)
I do however draw the line at pumpkin candy/gum…ick…too weird? Weird as in but you just professed undying love for pumpkin? (reader eyeroll)
I’m strangely conditional with things I love. Don’t ask why. I don’t even know.
Fall represents not just changing of the leaves, cooler weather, less bugs in the air (crossing fingers on that), but the undeniably magical fruit/vegetable (dare we say a frutable) of the season.
Hugs & Pumpkin kisses,
**Interesting tidbit, while googling around, I came about this article regarding that iconic balcony scene line in Romeo & Juliet. The blogger discusses the actual proper usage of the word Wherefore.
