Pumpkin Spice

Go figure, but this year I am so into Pumpkin Spice I’m probably going to wear down my family. I want to mix it in everything.  I’ve mixed it with plain hot tea and come up with an amazing spiced tea; I’ve put it in oatmeal with raisins for breakfast; I made pumpkin cookies that didn’t have pumpkin spice in them per say, but cinnamon was definitely in them…. I cannot get enough of this stuff.  See the cookies I made last night? Marvelous aren’t they?

Then there is this marvelous recipe from Joy the Baker that I feel I must try. Maple Spiced Almond Milk with a hint of Pumpkin.  I haven’t sat down and soaked my almonds for making into almond milk, but I do have the pumpkin out.  So I need to do that.

I want to smell the spice everywhere. I want it in everything. I want to sprinkle it on my toast with sugar. I want to eat it in pies and cakes and drinks.  There is something so delicious about the spices.  And I find it rather interesting that they say men absolutely adore the scent of these spices.  Want to catch a man? Bake a Pumpkin Pie…..  Or maybe just sprinkle on some of the spice cabinet….
