Happy National Pumpkin Spice Day!
There’s a part of me that really wants to go nuts for pumpkin spice everything. I love pumpkin pie, I love pumpkin in my dinner – but don’t people get burnt out on all the pumpkin?! I mean, they make pumpkin spice flavored toothpaste for Pete’s sake!!!! Who even wants that?!
My mom came to visit today and, because she loves me and is probably concerned for the well-being of my family, she brought gifts!
After reading about the great cheese slice debate of 2016, she gave us a brick of singles. There’s at least 100 slices in this thing, it should last the next three months!
She also brought along two packages of Jell-o *instant* butterscotch pudding. INSTANT!! All those years, she was using instant pudding!! No wonder mine turned out all weird and gooey! The secret is out now and perfectly lumpy pudding is in my future!
While she was in town we stopped at Super Target, aka Mom and Grandma’s happy place. The kids picked out anything and everything they thought they could talk my mom into buying (sneaky little buggers!) and my mom bought me some Pumpkin Spice Chai Tea bags because, let’s be honest, I’m not capable of making a pumpkin spice beverage at home… No amount of barista experience can undo the fact that I don’t own an espresso machine. Or anything to froth milk. Or pumpkin pie spices.
My mommy is the best.
