5 Fandom Friday is a weekly linkup and meme. This weeks theme is Favorite Seasonal Foods.
1. Pumpkin Spice
I don’t care if that makes people think I’m basic or whatever1 but I love pumpkin spice. I’ve always liked the pumpkin and pie and pumpkin spice is like adding pumpkin pie to everything. Which is great in my book.
2. Thanksgiving Food
Lawd I love Thanksgiving. Turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, corn pudding, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, tons of gravy. It’s always best the day after when you put all of the leftovers on a roll like a Thanksgiving sandwich.
Here in the southeast apples, gourds like pumpkins, pecans, and sweet potatoes are in peak season in the fall. Which makes it a great time for all kinds of delicious pies. Which makes it fantastic.
As days get darker and things cool down I often start putting my Crockpot to use making soups and stews and, my favorite, chilis. Chili is simple and easy and packed full of flavor. Top it with a heap of Vermont white cheddar and a dollop of sour cream and it’ll warm you right up.
5. Halloween Candy
Especially the 50% off kind that’s available on November 1st.
Which is really a kind of lame insult, “You like stuff other people like, too.” Okay, yeah. ↩
