Thanksgiving is (gasp) tomorrow. Which means for most people pumpkin cravings will come to an end. And I think that isn't such a bad thing. Let's be honest, we all went a little crazy. We've added pumpkin to things that didn't need pumpkin and we paid the price through really, really, really bad batches of brownies.
But last week I hit pay dirt. If you add pumpkin to a box of yellow cake mix and add an egg, vanilla, a bunch of pumpkin pie spice and some cinnamon chips then you are golden my friend. You are golden. These were so good my husband asked for seconds and thirds and ate them again when he got home from work.
So Christmas is coming on us fast. FAST! Five weeks fast!
I believe that a thoughtful gift matters. Even if you're living on a tight budget and you find yourself holiday gift giving on a tight budget, you can still give a thoughtful gift... food! Everyone loves a savory or sweet treat and there is nothing lingering around in March, taking up space on the coffee table or shoved into the back of the closet.
