The Inaugural Pumpkin Day

It seems to me that random holidays are popping up everywhere. In fact, I just found out that my birthday is also National Coffee Day. I’m not complaining! We decided to hop on the holiday bandwagon and create one of our own — Pumpkin Day. I think Pumpkin Day, which takes place on October 1, should be an annual event. We agreed to hold off on pumpkin flavored everything (food, coffee, beer, etc.) and have it all (or most of it) on October 1. It was a great success.

We started the day with pumpkin spice French toast.

Next up — pumpkin spice lattes from Stickboy Bakery. We brought pumpkin spice marshmallows (oh yeah, they exist) to add to our drinks.

After a short break, we moved on to pumpkin spice cookies (from a mix, I’ll admit it) with orange Halloween frosting and pumpkin spice Hershey Kisses.

Alex was just interested in eating the dough, mostly.

Did you know they sell pumpkin pie liqueur? Neither did I. But it’s delicious and we had it with coffee after dinner.

Alex managed to try both pumpkin cheesecake AND pumpkin pie.

Last up on the Pumpkin Day agenda was pumpkin beer! Our favorite beer & wine store in Boone had a convenient sampler of pumpkin beers. We tried them all, and they are pictured with our favorite on the far left and least favorite on the far right.

We agreed — the Cottonwood Pumpkin was the best!

Can’t wait for next year’s Pumpkin Day! I highly recommend celebrating this important holiday.
