I immerse myself so deeply in everything pumpkin. It’s like a pumpkin coma, if you will.
But, this year is different. I vowed to take a step back from the ancestor of the squash. I’m still relishing in all-things-fall, just simply without the orange induced hangover.
Instead of pumpkin coffee in the AM, I’ve been sprinkling cinnamon and nutmeg in my joe.
This weekend I attended my best friends Octoberfest BBQ. What did I bring?
Candy Corn Oreo Brownies. (pictured above)
Chocolate Chip cookies with “harvest sprinkles”.
Apple Cider Sangria.
This is all in an effort to not leave this season with a churned stomach for any and all things pumpkin.
I think it’s working.
Now let me go enjoy my harvest candle and left over apple cider.
‘Cause I didn’t say I was backing off the forbidden fruit.
