    I had a pumpkin latte that was delicious. I just wish it were calorie free. Ice cream? no that would be a pass

    I know lots of people who like those pumpkin spice coffee drinks, but I hate coffee. I've tried several different pumpkin spice teas and they were godawful. Maybe I'm just really sensitive to artificial flavoring.

    As for ice cream, I'll stick with Ben and Jerry's Late Night Snack or the Golden Caramel Swirl from Trader Joe's...although not very often!

    It's the whipped cream on top that made it so damn yummy.

    I have never had pumpkin tea. I really do prefer it in my pie.

It seemed thin, bland and just not very egg like.



    The ones I've had before were hearty and rich. They seemed like real eggs in the dish, not some watery, nonidentifiable substance. Any suggestions? I've read a couple that have shredded potatoes in it and a little onion. I'm not sure if that will take away from the egg taste. I want to keep the egg flavor. I'm going to prepare another one this weekend with a few different ingredients.

    When my friends and I go away for weekend retreats, we do a breakfast casserole in the crock pot. It goes in the night before and cooks all night. When we wake up in the morning, breakfast is ready!

    I am LOVING the pomegranates this year. It helps that I learned how to cut them in half, score the peel, and spank them hard (I use a ladle). The fruit just drops right out, but it does splatter, so wear an apron, or do it over a wide bowl inside your sink. Nom, nom, nom.
    Count your blessings!

    The weather is getting ready to go to hell and I haven't made a pot of soup in a very, very long time! Time to break out the slow cooker! It's going to be hard to be in the house while it's cooking. Unfortunately, this will require me going to the stupid grocery store today, but it will be worth me biting the bullet. That's the only part that will be a true drag! It will be vegetable beef.

    Since our weather has gone to pot and colder than a well diggers butt outside with sleet and possible snow I am getting my holiday bread and cakes made. I am having beans and cornbread for supper.

    Pulled the Thanksgiving turkey breast bones (there were only two of us, so we only bought a breast for T'giving) out of the freezer, and am now making bone broth in the slow cooker. Given the chilly, rainy forecast for the weekend, this will be just in time for the Turkey Pho [pronounced "fuh"] recipe I've been wanting to try.

    BTW: If I were to open a Vietnamese restaurant, I'd name it "What the Pho."
