trick or treat

since halloween is monday, all of the trick or treat stuff will most likely be this weekend, stay safe by using flashlight, having reflective tape on costumes & making sure you can see out of your mask.

but a lot of place are having the T or T sessions in the afternoon when there's more light, but still be careful.

cheerios pumpkin spice

not that great, tastes kind of smoky. almost smells like the cardboard of the box it came in.

this seems like the end of the pumpkin spice experiment. unless we to to starbucks for their pumpkin spice blended cream or another local convenience store's pumpkin spice frozen drink.

yet more pimpkin spice

wal-mart pumpkin cobbler bread: not too bad. kind of dry.

pepperidge farms' pumpkin spice bread: not as much flavor as the wal mart one, but not as dry.

thomas' pumpkin spice bagels; not much flavor, but with pumpkin spice, that's a good thing.

i wonder if we should try the cheerios pumpkin spice cereal.

the autum leaf test

You Are Spirited and Spontaneous
You are an energetic, passionate person. You are quite impulsive, and your passions tend to change with the wind.
You are lively and fun. You like to stay busy with your various adventures.

You are a wanderer and a traveler. You're curious about the world, and it's hard for you to stay still for too long.
You get bored easily and tend to shirk on your responsibilities. You don't want to grow up yet!

not me at all

what color pumpkin are you?

You Are an Orange Pumpkin
You are a bit average and ordinary, but that's a good thing. People appreciate you for who you are.
You believe life's too short to not forgive and forget. You try to let the small stuff slide and focus on what's important.

You appreciate the ordinary things that most people ignore - good friends, a warm home, a tasty meal.
There's so much to be thankful for in your life that you would feel wrong to complain too much!

fall "themed" donuts

while in wal-mart not long ago i came across apple cider donuts from entenmann's and i had just been talking to my brother a few days about how i'd like to try apple cider donuts like you hear about at apple orchards in the fall. well, the entenmann's version doesn't seem very apple cider-like. perhaps the "real" ones are better.

and while getting those from the display (i need to have blinders like a horse when i go into a store) i found some pumpkin (not pumpkin spice) from the same company. they didn't taste like pumpkin, but occasionally i'd get a hit of it like on the left edge of my tongue.

but both were very fresh & had a nice glaze. entenmann's is expensive, but good. there's a "thrift" store that deals in day (or two) old baked goods somewhat near here & if we had the time, money & freezer space we'd go and load up on stuff.

arby's stuff

went to arby's not long ago & the had a few new things.

a pumpkin pie cheesecake shake, which i had, it was pumpkin pike like but not great tasting.

a cinnamon apple crisp which had too much cinnamon, not enough apple & wasn't "crispy" at all. and it's smaller than the old cinnamon roll & "chocolate lava" thing they had a couple of years ago. not worth at all what they charged for it.
