Something’s coming

14 Apr

Duuuuude, I’m taking next week off from the blog.

I’m swamped. On set as we speak. Write. Read?


But! Coming up a week from Monday is the Second Annual Pumpkin Week in spring!

Just when you least suspected.

The picture is of my pumpkin colored walls. Due the the way the light filters through my curtains it’s always sunset in my bedroom. Except at night.
For color ceases to exist sans light.

I think I had approximately 2 readers for last spring’s pumpkin week so I’ll recap how the first year went.

Day one: cracked open a can of pumpkin and grilled that mother.

Day two: shook it up

Day three: still shake-ish but prettier

Day four:
Not even.

Day five: the grand finale

There have been other delights of punkin’ nature:
Pumpkin Chia Pudding

As well as pumpkin bars, time dos:

A muffin:

And of course, pumpkin pie:

So take the next week to relax, buy some pumpkin, catch up on your reading, go hiking and get ready. Pumpkin week is on it’s way.
Got a favorite pumpkin recipe? Feel free to link to it in the comments! Yah.

    Sweet 😛 I love pumpkin and have a can of it sitting in my cupboard as I type. Hmmm… pumpkin chia pudding sounds so alluring. I’ve been meaning to make some chia pudding for a while now so no excuses 😀

    I love pumpkin, but even more so I love your comment for your pumpkin week entry #4 from last year – few things make me LOL, but I have to admit, that was one of them ;).

    Enjoy your “break” and looking forward to see what you come up with this year!

      Thanks m’lady! Yes, epic failure is not failure at all when it leads to laughter!
      That sounds like it should be in a fortune cookie…

      Thanks! I hope you found a few more besides this, since I tend to post most of them in spring. Let me know if you make anything how it goes!
