Age +1

So I turned 37 today. 

Don't feel any older.

Went out for a late lunch with the wife.

Got some Funko Pops for gifts from the wife.

Daughter made me a cake. Lemon cake with lemon frosting.

Bought myself a copy of the Legend of Zelda Art and Artifacts book and a new video card (to hopefully get my main pc back up and running).

Also the last day of my vacation.

All in all a good day.

Back to the grind tomorrow.

31 Days of Pumpkin - Pumpkin Cheesecake Ice Cream

Here we go folks the last treat.

Ben & Jerry's Pumpkin Cheesecake ice cream.

This is one I've been eating the past few years. Love this stuff to death because not only does it taste great but it's not full of nuts, chips, fudge, and what all else goes in most flavors of Ben & Jerry's. It's just pumpkin cheesecake ice cream with graham cracker bits.

I'm lactose intolerant so I have to eat it in small portions bit it worth every bite.

Hands down my most favorite treat of the series. 

So that's all people. 31 pumpkin treats to enjoy in the Fall. Considering I've covered so many now I doubt I'll be able to do 31 treats every so how year without repeating so I'll likely do something different next year.

Take it easy!!!

31 Days of Pumpkin - Pumpkin Spice Special K

Special K is one of my favorite cereals. Pumpkin Spice is one of my favorite seasonings. Putting them together?


I picked these up a few days ago and have been looking forward to trying them and I was pleased. 

Special K is a pretty tough cereal so it has more resistance to going soggy than the pumpkin spice life I talked about previously.

The spices were a good mix and went really well with the faint hint of sweetness that Special K has.

So far I have only seen these at Wal-Mart and only in the last week or two. I'm hoping a lot of them make it to the clearance isle.

Here we are folks one more to go. What pumpkin spice treat will I end things with?

Come back tomorrow to find out!

31 Days of Pumpkin - Pumpkin Spice Bread

Simply put the best French Toast I ever made.

Pepperidge Farm has a constant line of flavored breads like cinnamon and strawberry buy they do a few seasonal ones as well namely this pumpkin spice one.

From what I can tell they make it by rolling a layer of pumpkin spice in with the dough making a swirl pattern in the finished bread.

I made a batch of French Toast with it. All I needed was the egg and milk for the batter since the bread already had flavor. 

Gonna need to pick up some more of these.

31 Days of Pumpkin - Pumpkin Spice Hot Chocolate

My apologies for not actually getting this in on time. I spent the day helping my wife sell her perler bead art at an Extra Life gaming event and by the time we got home I was so beat it wasn't until today I realized I forgot to post.

And it doesnt help that the video card in my desktop died a few days ago so I'm going these from my phone. But on with it.

The picture you see above is pumpkin spice hot chocolate by Sillycow Farms.

First I've seen this before so I just had to try it.

The key difference is unlike most hot chocolates this one doesnt have any powder milk therefore you mist use milk instead of water for this.

It's a good solid drink. Using fresh milk gives it that nice creaminess you expect from hot chocolate. 

I especially enjoyed that it wasn't too sweet given what I've been eating all month.

The only issue is the price. That small glass bottle of hot chocolate mix costs $6. 

You could probably get more for your money if you made a custom mix of cocoa powder, sugar, and pumpkin spice.

It tastes good but due to the price I think I will try to make my own mix next time.
