But year after year, the wonderful fall foods and scents sucker me into the kitchen to test out my Suzie Homemakery Skills. It begins around this time in September, just around autumn, when freshly picked apples and cider fill the stores. Who can resist an apple pie? I'm still perfecting the crust, folks. Bear with me. My zeal in the kitchen continues through Thanksgiving where I will make two pumpkin pies. There is honestly nothing - nothing - I love more (in regards to foods) than a perfect piece of pumpkin pie with homemade whip cream on top. For Christmas, I'll do some baking of cookies and fun treats. Come January, though, the oven shuts off. Nothing against that month, but it's just how it turns out.
The only thing bad about all this is that we can't eat anything until tomorrow. We made everything for a gathering with friends. It will be a good night, for sure...I will be standing by the food table, almost 39 weeks pregnant, eating all these pumpkin treats of goodness. :)
