November kicks my pumpkin cravings into high gear. Say what you will about October, but November and pumpkins just go together. I'm all in now. Completely. Maybe it's because I get homemade pumpkin bars on my birthday—which, by the way, happens to fall on Thanksgiving this year. So I have to wait for Thanksgiving to eat the aforementioned pumpkin bars because #tradition.
But I'm cheating a bit this year.
Just kind of.
