#Pumpkinization #2

Yogurt and I have a love hate relationship.  Once again, it's a texture thing.  Greek yogurt is better over all.  Less "slimy".  But the great development in yogurt technology is the flip cup.  So you can have crunchy bits that don't get soggy because you dump them in right before you eat.  I can actually enjoy yogurt for breakfast when there's some CRUNCH.

So in an entry in the Pumpkinization movement, I found this..................

It's crunchy, it's sweet, it's "pumpkinny"................just not enough.  I'll buy a few more while they're still around.  But its more spicey than anything.  I'll give it a "6".

#Pumpkinization Running Wild

Every year it starts in late August.  Just in time for fall.  Pumpkinization.  But I have resisted because it's been too hot. And one week into October, it's just now starting to feel nippy enough to be fall.  Came really close to ordering the Pumpkin Spice Latte this morning, but couldn't bring myself to go for it.

Meanwhile, along with many others in the blogosphere, (most notably James Lileks) we are marveling at the ever growing pumpkinization of food products.  So here's a few of the ones I've found, which will be rated on a scale of 1 to 10.  And these are in lieu of the pumpkin pie, which of course was the inspiration for all this.  Which I've never liked.

Its a texture thing.

Not a cookie fan.  I especially hate Oreos.  But two of these with a hot cup of tea is not bad.  Not great, but not bad.  I'll give it a "5".

Pope Francis Has Good Taste in Vehicles

This looks oddly like a vehicle in my garage.

Anyone know where we can get that kind of top?

What Happened to Fall?

This isn't fall.  And it certainly isn't autumn. 

It's hot, it's dry, and there's no end in sight.

Sure, on a few occasions there's been a slight nip in the air.  But only slight.

Mid-August is when I'm done with the hot and ready for the cool, if not, COLD.  But nothing like that so far this year.  

So it's official, I'm moving September to October and we'll try again next month.  Unless this September decides to redeem itself.

I can't even make myself CONTEMPLATE a Pumpkin Spiced Latte.  Not yet.
