Autumn to me means a trip to the Fryeburg Fair (and my first cup of Pumpkin Spice coffee from Green Mountain Coffee. Dunkin Donuts and Starbucks both also do a Pumpkin Spice drink, made using a flavored syrup. It can often be purchased online, or straight from the store if they over order and have leftovers when the season is over. But making your own is way preferable. That way you can make sure there is actual pumpkin in it, not just pumpkin flavored chemicals.
I found bloglovin while trying to figure out how to keep track of all the food and preserving blogs I was stumbling across and being obsessed with. It works great and I really like the interface, which was recently updated to let you follow via timeline or on a blog by blog basis. Love it, love it, love it. I’ve updated my profile to make it easier to add this blog to the FREE service.
Nothing quite screams “fall” to me like the flavor of pumpkin and spices. I cook alot of pumpkin during the year, but once it starts getting chilly I yearn for creamy pumpkin soup to warm me and fill my tummy up.
