    Thursday #662 Time to raid the pumpkin patch?

    It's Pumpkin time!

    (forget you saw that commercial about the Christmas lights this morning.)

    On my walks I have noticed that the trees are still holing on to their leaves! But I have noticed pumpkins all over the place.

    In the stores, on porches - to me? The only good pumpkin in one baked in pie or bread.

    Or candy!!!

    It's Dulces de Calabasas (Dewl-seh deh Cah la-bah-sas)

    I remember this candy growing up and you could buy a huge piece - it was translucent - with a pumpkin seed in the middle!!!!

    Hot drinks and maybe some cold ones?

    Belly up to the bar and order up!

    Hot spiced pumpkin tea for me please. If Orc hasn't eaten all the cookies I would love a few too. October is my favorite month. Can't wait for the leaves to change color!

    I'll have a big stein (1 liter) of Oktoberfest beer (even though Oktoberfest in Munich takes place in September).
    Beer goes well with anything sweet, so a big slice of pumpkin pie, please, as well.
    I do have a pumpkin on my porch...

    Feels like the "s" word isn't too far from reality in this neck of the woods, either.

    I'll join you in some tea, and if there are enough blankets to nest in, we might even get wigglebutt to join us.

    Definitely hot chai season is now upon us! I'll make a pot large enough to share if anyone wants some. And ginger raisin (those the raisins are chopped small so they are little bits of color and flavor, not big and chewy) shortbreads are on offer!

    I saw a recipe for roasted butternut squash in the food section of the newspaper yesterday. I cut it out for Thanksgiving because I like roasted vegetables! For right now I'm just drinking tea because it's cool outside today.
    I've been Boo'd ... right off the stage!

    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!
