My autumn indulgence
The Cleansing has moved into Phase 3 (no white flour or sugar) and it's going rather well, but this time of year brings my Kryptonite: pumpkin flavored foods and beverages. For instance, this week I had a pumpkin ale (and it wasn't a light beer). There are several varities of pumpkin beers in the store and I want to try them all. And I will.
Also, last night I bought some International Delight Pumpkin Pie Spice coffee creamer. Life is just too short deprive yourself of that. And since I don't drink coffee during the week, my weekend treat is that more special. Last Christmas's Starbucks gift card has remained unused solely because their seasonal pumpkin coffee hasn't been on their menu. But it's only a matter of days.
Luckily, I don't think pumpkin spice donuts, ice cream, or pies have made it into the stores just yet.
