♥ Happy Halloween :: Pumpkin Spice

It's Halloween weekend and I've been very excited about getting into the Halloween spirit this year, despite some costume delays :) Although pumpkin carving was never really my thing, I like the thought of adding pumpkin to any ordinary dish or drink to give it the flavor of fall.

The other week I tried a delicious pumpkin beer at the Whip In called Dogfish Head Punkin Ale, which paired very well with the cold rain outside and the spicy yellow curry dish I ordered.

I also found myself drooling over this decadent recipe for Pumpkin Crème Brûlée from Love & Olive Oil.

We may not see the seasons change in central Texas, but the smell of pumpkin spices has the ability to make me eagerly anticipate the holiday season, as well as, induce a curl-up-by-the-fire type coma.

I hope everyone has a fantastic Halloween weekend filled with spooky costumes and sweet treats! Like I said, I am not much of a pumpkin carver, but I did find some people who are. Check out these INCREDIBLE pumpkin sculptures I found on MSN's homepage [they are just too wonderful to call them carvings]!
too cute! what a great idea!


Happy Halloween Y'all!
