I know that we are in the last days of summer and autumn is kicking up her heels. Billboards, social media pages, and television commercials boats of boots, scarves, and jackets. Many of us, at least here in the mid-Atlantic region of the US have already grown accustomed to an air -conditionless life once more. If you’re like me, the evenings have once again become perfect for strolls through the neighborhood and ending in coffee shops and cafes offering…PUMPKIN!!!! This week’s Can’t LIVE Without list is all about the wonderful goodies I hope you try over the next couple of months that are flavored with pumpkin, one of this season’s best offerings.
Pumpkin Spice Latte
After yesterday morning’s doctor appointment I decided to mosey on over to Starbucks for one super delicious warm tall soy pumpkin latte. I parked it at a bench facing the window where I read and sipped until there was no more pumpkin spice latte for me to enjoy. Starbucks Locations are all over, get yourself to one and get some pumpkin spice latte in your life xxoo
While at lunch this past weekend my brother and I didn’t stop at our carefully crafted and quickly consumed entrees. No No No. We ordered dessert! What did we have you ask? Pumpkin cheesecake!!! We had our pumpkin cheesecake at Fuel restaurant in Midtown. Perfectly chilled, sprinkled with crushed walnuts and almonds, garnished with whipped cream sprinkled with cinnamon. Yum!
Pumpkin Pie Fudge
As if the latte and cheesecake weren’t enough- there is pumpkin flavored fudge!!!! I stopped by Gertrude Hawk Chocolates to get a little piece of vanilla fudge and low and behold my eyes spotted a glass dish the held within it…pumpkin pie flavored fudge. I got some vanilla and pumpkin pie flavored fudge.
Well that’s all the pumpkin I have had so far and the season has just begun. That means there is so much more pumpkin to be had and the pumpkin possibilities are endless.
