Ahhh, autumn! What a glorious season. The crisp air. The golden & rust colored leaves. A time to pull out your cute boots and....caps? What would be another cute article of clothing that would surface in the fall?
You see, it's been 15 years since I've had the pleasure of donning any cool weather clothes. No season changes for me. I live on an island smack dab in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Hawai'i. Actually, Oahu to be exact. I know some of you might have a difficult time feeling sorry for me. I live here.
Well, my husband works here & this is where we have all of our family gatherings, but you get the idea.
So while I'm sure you won't be crying me a river any time soon, surely you can appreciate my nostalgia for fall & spring.
It doesn't help that all of the blogs that I frequent are practically bragging to me about their recent trips to the apple orchard. How they taunt me with their stories of football games, hay rides, blah, blah, blah. Bitter? Maybe just a tad.
So, I bake. I make fall-themed items. Frito pie, pumpkin cookies, chili. Anything that conjures up images from my childhood.
These cupcakes are the perfect homage to autumn-a moist pumpkin cake brushed with coffee & topped with the yummiest homemade whipped cream dusted with cinnamon.
Ok, that'll have to do for now.
I feel chilly and my thermometer confirms that it's a cool 66 degrees. Time to break out the sweat pants.
