I don't drink caffeine so I can't drink those lattes but I look forward to it being cool enough to drink hot chocolate. Starbucks does make an awesome peppermint hot chocolate.

Truth be told though...I made a pumpkin pie yesterday. hah hah. I had some pie pumpkins that I grew and one of them kept getting dropped on the floor so rather than have it go bad, I made pumpkin puree out of it. We made pie last night and I got all disappointed because I didn't realize it had to chill for 6h, which meant I had to wait until today to eat it. So I had a slice for breakfast. hah hah. It's bad, I know. Whatever. It was awesome. hah hah.

Sounds delish! Our local Walmart sells "Apple Fritter Bread" and it is SO good! It's tastes exactly like an apple fritter. Mmm...

Oh my how did i forget Hot Apple Cider.


Also don't want to forget Pumpkin Ales. Also this year if your Sam Adams fan in the Fall collections there is a new beer this year so looking forward to that.

I am a huge fan of caramel apples, pumpkin bread or muffins, and all sorts of different stews and soups. I also love hot chcoolate which I drink year round but it sure does taste the best with a chill in the air ... we are getting to this time of year friends!
