When did all things pumpkin and pumpkin spice take over the grocery store, the coffee shop, the moisturizer section of the drugstore, etc.? I went to Trader Joe’s on Saturday with the kids and there was an enormous pumpkin products display as you entered the store. Pumpkin pancake mix, pumpkin toaster pastries, pumpkin and cranberry crackers—even salted pumpkin caramels. Naturally, the kids made my buy a package of pumpkin bagels and some pumpkin cream cheese. They love this stuff. I think I could serve them pumpkin bagels with pumpkin cream cheese for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and they wouldn’t complain. As a matter of fact, they both ate every last bite of this lunch today. In addition to half a pumpkin bagel with pumpkin cream cheese, they got homemade applesauce (it’s also apple season!), super sweet red lipstick peppers, carrots, fancy 1000 Day Gouda (also from TJ’s) and crackers.
