It's That Pumpkin Anything Time of Year

From the October 5, 2016, Chicago Tribune "Autumn Love Affair" by Jean Marie Brownson.

Although, with the 6 inches of snow we received on Halloween,it seems more like a winter wonderland thing than fall, this is the time of the year that thoughts of many, including myself, turn to anything pumpkin flavored, especially pumpkin spice cappuccino from Thornton's.

She points out that you can even make your own pumpkin spice mix for better flavor.  Such items as cakes, pies, ice cream and puddings.  I see Steak 'N Shake has a Pumpkin Spice Shake.  What next?  Pumpkin Spice McRibs?

And, if cooking is your thing, she had recipes for several items:

Pumpkin spice and currant waffles

Homemade pumpkin pie spice.

Why, I have even seen little teeth marks from our friendly local bushy-tailed rats (squirrels) on our two pumpkins outside.
