Pumpkin Spice Bread

I feel like I’m late to the pumpkin party this year. Starbucks’ PSL came out before the summer even ended and other delicious pumpkin recipes have been popping up all over social media. Orange is the official color of October and November; pumpkin is the food that comes knocking before the big turkey day. Yup, we’re less than a month away from Thanksgiving and I haven’t a clue what I’ll be posting for the blog. Blogging and time management at its finest.

Happy Breakfast Week guys!

Across the country, Eater has been promoting its food-porniest breakfast finds.

Kind of makes me wonder who decides what week/day/month is assigned to each food holiday. There is literally a holiday for every single day of the year (today is National Almond Day, if you’re curious). Maybe anyone can just declare any day a holiday because they feel like it?

Crispy Roasted Potatoes

Crispy Potatoes

Is it just me or did Christmas just show up out of nowhere? I believe the warm weather is to blame for this mind trick. I’m not complaining about this very charming December we’ve been having, but I did maybe forget what month it was and had to rush out to the shops with the other Christmas procrastinators. It was not a pretty scene.

Now that my very hectic shopping season is over, I can finally focus on the Christmas meal. What do people have on Christmas anyway? I’m never quite sure. People tell me it’s ham but I still want turkey but my squad informs me that’s so last month. Continue reading
