Saw this on a TRUSTED food blog and thought I'd share with you:
There was bad weather during last year’s crop that ruined about 1/3 of the crop…resulting in the shortage on grocery shelves today. I know my grocery store has been out for weeks. And others in Indiana, Iowa, California are also reporting difficulty finding this precious commodity and NECESSITY in their stores.
I share this not to induce widespread panic. Just to let you know the situation.
So, if you see a can. Buy it.
In my house, there MUST be pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving. MUST BE.
My husband LOVES it. I am seriously considering whipping up a pumpkin mousse pie instead but I don't think he'll go for it. He has pulled Micaela into his Pumpkin Pie World, too.
I personally am not a fan of pumpkin anything. I did taste some peanut-butter pumpkin coconut bars one year that were delish.....No recipe or recollection of who made them, darn it.
I love Thanksgiving.
I love the cooking (hate the cleaning).
I love the traditions.
Love Fall all the way around....
