Confession: I’m not really that into Pumpkin Stuff
Carving pumpkins is a hobby I never got into (probably because I HATE the gooey insides of a pumpkin and that one time with a knife…), I have a hard time shelling over the cash for any sort of pumpkin that is heavy enough not to get stolen off my stoop by the neighborhood riffraff (THANKS CITY LIVING) and I just don’t really LOVE the taste of pumpkin. No really, you can have my slice of pumpkin pie.
But… there is just something about Pumpkin Season.
Pumpkin Season means Fall. Pumpkin Season means the Holidays are coming. Pumpkin season reminds me of my mom and growing up with my sisters and high school football games and that perfect chilly temperature before it’s so cold that you disappear underneath a winter jacket.
Pumpkin Season ushers in the Holiday Season. And I really like the Holiday season.
Along with all that, pumpkin season usually users in a nice fall cold for me. Ah yes.. you thought you knew where this post was going: I was going to share my favorite pumpkin recipe for you to remake to blow your family’s mind this upcoming Thanksgiving. Or instructions for a special pumpkin treat for you to enjoy the last of the season while you start decorating your tree. But alas, I am not going that route.
Last week I was knocked on my ass with a cold and sinus infection (and ear infection because I’m a 5 year old) and I wanted to do nothing, feel nothing and just cry my infections away (crying makes a sinus infection worse, fyi). I was tired of tea. So what do you get when you don’t want tea, are still not done pumpkin season and are married to man who does no wrong when it comes to Whiskey? Pumpkin-spice Hot Toddy of course.
Let me enlighten you:
Pumpkin Season may almost be over. But The Holiday season is right around the corner. And no matter WHAT you celebrate, or what sort of child-like infection decides to plague you, there is always a reason to drink a little whiskey!
Are you a big fan of Pumpkin? Would you add Pumpkin to your Whiskey Drink?
