Living in Portland for the past three years has gotten me into the spirit of enjoying each of the four seasons, something that we native Southern Californians tend to miss out on.
Because of my time here in Portland, I’ve fallen in love with the seasons fall and winter. From the switch to warmer clothing attire to the constant need for a hot beverage to comfort the soul, fall and winter are seasons are close to my heart. The best part of these seasons in particular is the number of pumpkin-related delicacies that arrive! Everything can be found in pumpkin flavor, from the classic pumpkin pie to pumpkin-flavored dog treats (I admit this is a little overboard). There’s no doubt that the fall season reeks of pumpkin EVERYTHING and the winter only sustains the tradition until spring.
What’s your favorite pumpkin treat? My personal favorite pumpkin-esque treat? Pumpkin pie and pumpkin spice lattes. Delicious!
