Pumpkin season is upon us again with Starbucks and other shops selling pumpkin-flavored drinks, pumpkin cupcakes, and in one case, I saw masks with a pumpkin aroma for sale. At the store, I sighted pumpkin-flavored beer for sale. I scored a pumpkin balloon over at CVS and suspect there will be more to come. However, I started the pumpkin season officially with pumpkin perfume and the cookies in the photo. I baked the cookies a couple of weeks ago, and they have the consistency of cake. They are delicious.
So you know, I’m allergic to floral-scented perfumes, but fruit scents are okay. And the pumpkin aroma works well. I have in mind to spray some on my mask when next I go out. And yes, I’ve bought the pumpkin Cheerios. However, I’m avoiding pumpkin sauce for pasta. Pasta goes best with tomato sauce, or as we Italians call it, gravy. My to-do list includes a visit to Starbucks for their pumpkin lattes and other stores that sell pumpkin ice cream and shakes.
At every store, it seems, pumpkin-flavored goods cost more than traditional flavors, especially right about now. Fall brings a cooling down period and shorter days. Pumpkin brings back memories of a Halloween and Thanksgiving past, with homemade pies and lots of candy. Maybe I like the taste of cinnamon and pumpkin. The recipe for the cookies called for cinnamon, but I used pumpkin pie spice instead. So I plan on taking advantage of the goodies offered during this pumpkin season.
