How do you know it's Fall?

My mums are in full bloom (honestly, my flower beds are happier and healthier than they've been in months). Monkey has adjusted to school. I've pulled out my slippers and put another blanket on the bed. Zee is making Halloween costumes. My favorite hoodie has emerged from the closet. And yesterday at the store, I found this:

I wanted to buy a whole case, maybe even a year supply, just so I wouldn't be without canned pumpkin again. But, yeah,  I settled for one and it's already half gone. Pumpkin muffins, pumpkin bread, pumpkin cookies.... the choices are delicious.

I think it's a shame that pumpkins aren't utilised ALL YEAR ROUND in the USA. In Australia it's a vegie you have every week with your dinner, with your roasts, you mash it up and mix it into your potato mash and make "golden mash", make soups. It's delicious. And not only do you only have it in the Fall season, it's canned! It's much better fresh.
