Every October I start to get a little sentimental, and I think its come a bit early this year. Jeff and I have started making plans with our families for Thanksgiving and Christmas and with all of the fall catalogs coming out and with everyone in cooler climates swooning over cranberry scones and Pumpkin lattes, I’m getting all wishy-washy for the holiday season – I know, already. Halloween decorations haven’t even started showing up in the grocery store, and I’m already planning which holiday treats I’m going to make for appetizers at our Christmas party. How lame am I??
And to increase the lameness, I am seriously considering making some holiday baked goods this weekend just to get it out of my system. But to mask this lameness, I think I’m going to disguise them with some appropriate fall flavorings, a la cranberry-maple sugar cookie style.
So does anyone have some uber-fantastic fall-flavored snack/dinner/heavenly-baked-yumminess that you wouldn’t mind sharing? I would especially love to make something with pumpkin, but Jeff doesn’t like pumpkin so I would just end up eating everything by myself. Good for my soul, bad for my waistline. Hmmm, I think I’m ok with feeding my soul.
So any suggestions would be appreciated. As you can see, I have a Kitchen Aid just waiting to fill me with fattening yummy goodness.
