The Coffee: 22 is a strange age to say the least. Recently when I met up with some girlfriends, we found the conversation took a turn to finance, bills, jobs and a vast array of serious things that I don’t want to worry about! I am determined to be responsible, but not sweat the small stuff. With a collegeless life in my palms, I’m finding new time to rekindle my hobbies. I am going to start painting again and fill the blank wall behind my bed with a glorious landscape (sunflowers involved). I am completing the Metro daily crosswords. I am writing. I am reading (just started a 10 book fantasy series). Optimism is my best friend today as I realize all the possibilities on the path to my quarter life! Don’t worry, I found time to begin my 401k and budget my monthly bills too 😉
The Cream and Sugar: I love Fall the same reason I love Spring, non-extreme hot/cold weather. Except for one exception: pumpkin.
Here are my favorite pumpkin things thus far:
Pumpkin Beer: I can not get enough of this stuff. I am a fan of Wachusett and ShipYard, not so much for Shock Top’s version.
Pumpkin K-Cups: We just starting getting these in the office and they are such a nice pick-me-up in the morning! I wonder what they would be like with a dash of cinnamon in them?
Pumpkin Pie: I made this recipe last year for Thanksgiving at my house and can’t wait to make it again! I use two recipes, one for the pie and one for the AH-mazing topping (seriously this topping makes it, and the pie recipe is a little healthier than the latter).
