Guilty Pleasures: Pumpkin

Contributed by Stephanie Clinton, OWB Admin


The theme here at Oklahima Women Bloggers this month is “Guilty Pleasures”.  For me, October is the perfect fit for this theme.

I’m all about the pumpkin. Pumpkin bread, carving pumpkins, pumpkin pie, pumpkin spice scents in candles and hand cream. My all time favorite is the Pumpkin Spice Latte at Starbucks. There is a Starbucks at the Target that I frequent and when I see that PSL sign as I walk though the doors it’s as if a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. The wait is finally over. Those three blessed letters, PSL, signal the end to a long, hot summer and herald in crisp mornings, cozy sweaters and fleese jammies.

While in Dallas last weekend my husband and I stopped at Trader Joes so I could complete my pumpkin fix.

Thank you Great Pumpkin. I lift my latte to you in honor of your pumpkinyness.

  1. Mmmm – pumpkin latte sounds good, Stephanie. My favorite pumpkin recipe is the one with the yellow cake ‘crust,’ pumpkin pie-type middle and reserved yellow cake mixed with sugar crumpled over the top which bakes to a sugar crisp. Double Mmmmms!
