Oh my. People are sick at work and my sister who lives with me is sick at home. Just doing my best to keep well these days. I think it's time for another pot of chicken soup which is always good during cold and flu season. Grocery shopping was completed this morning and Mr. Chicken (oops, I guess I should say Mrs. Chicken) is chopped and ready for the pot.
When I left the house this morning, it was still overcast and I actually enjoyed the fall-like feeling in the air for as long as it lasted. The leaves are still barely starting to fall but I have to admit the mild sunny weather is quite nice. There are pumpkins everywhere and it just might be time to whip up some pumpkin muffins this weekend. Would be lovely with a cup of tea!
In fact, it seems like every third item listed in Trader Joe's Fearless Flyer this week was some kind of pumpkin item. I can highly recommend their pumpkin butter - scrumptious on pancakes! Hmmm, I'm afraid I'm making my mouth water for a slice of pumpkin pie topped with freshly whipped cream now. Note to self: add pumpkin pie to next week's shopping list. How about you?
