Pumpkin Spice

There’s no mistaking it, Turkey Day goes down this week! Of all the holidays Thanksgiving truly is my favorite. Yes, it even surpasses the enchanting horror that is Halloween. Thanksgiving, for me, is the only holiday that really makes sense. It’s a time when families’ gather round a shared table for a day full of laughing, loving and giving thanks. Or stuffing yourself to the point of uncomfortable gluttony, followed by brief periods of unconsciousness caused by tryptophan induced comas and then maybe a bit of footballing, probably from the safety and warmth found on the couch!
The other reason I fancy Thanksgiving is the perpetual olfactory excitement produced by the unmistakable spice blend that is Fall. Cinnamon. Ginger. Nutmeg. Cloves.
Danielle’s Pumpkin Spice Blend
1 Tbsp + 1 Tsp Cinnamon
1 Tsp Ginger
1 Tsp Nutmeg
1/2 Tsp Cloves

The above combination is my recipe for pumpkin spice, it makes a little over 2 Tbsp. I usually make several batches and place it in a container, this way I have an ample supply on hand to get me through Fall and all things pumpkin!
