One of my favorite things about this time of year is the plethora of items that are available made with pumpkin. There is a local bakery here in Bowie that makes Pumpkin danishes that I just absolutely love. My wife picked up two of them for me last week.
This is also one of my favorite times of year when it comes to Starbucks. I do not treat myself to Starbucks as much as I used to these days, but this time of year I have to treat myself to a Pumpkin Spiced Latte. It also means that it will soon be time for them to come out with their Eggnog Lattes.
There are several locations where I can pick up other pumpkin goodies like pumpkin donuts, pumpkin muffins, and pumpkin cheesecake. Of course, for more adult treats I can always pick up one of several pumpkin brews available at the liquor store.
One of the reasons that I have been thinking about pumpkin today is that I received an email from Kraft. In it, was a link to their website with literally hundreds of recipes for pumpkin dishes and desserts. I saw one recipe for a pumpkin pie that I made one year that I got from a Philadelphia Cream Cheese cookbook that has a layer of cream cheese and a layer of pumpkin
One of my coworkers might be an even bigger pumpkin fan than I am, plus he does a lot of baking, so I forwarded the link to him. Hopefully he will find a few of them to his liking and make a few of them and let me sample them.
