I can’t be left alone in a grocery store. Especially when it’s a super-size grocery store (A WHOLE HOUR’S DRIVE AWAY) with a giant bulk foods department and 20 different varieties of local organic kale and maple toasted coconut WHAT and you don’t choose between which brand of canned chickpeas you want to buy, you choose between with organic brand you want to buy because that’s all they sell and oh my gosh Woodstock frozen berries are on sale and they have every kind of coconut milk ice cream everrrrr! This is why I can’t be trusted to shop alone. Whilst my mom and sister waltz off to American Eagle with iced coffees in hand, the partay begins. I know, I’m bad. But I can’t help it.

I can explain. Okay actually, maybe I can’t. I wasn’t the only one who was hesitant about opening the first can of pumpkin this year, was I? Was I. Seriously, it seems like homemade pumpkin puree might be a good idea. Imagine how incredible one’s house would smell. Almost as incredible as if one were to make these doughnuts.

But I actually have a really coherent reason. which is a fun change of pace.)

fall is here. and i’m going to go cry somewhere.

did that confuse you? everyone seems confused about my emotions towards fall. even i am confused about my emotions towards fall. you see, this season is bittersweet for me. i love so many things about it, like cinnamon and running the oven again and warm desserts and fires (controlled ones, thank God) and buckets and buckets of apples and the need for pumpkin in all the things. that’s all sweet and everything. but the bitterness is there because summer is over. OVERRR. which means nobody wants to hear about ice cream anymore. (well, that’s just too bad for you because you’re going to be hearing about it more later. and i totally would’ve done ice cream with these waffles but i didn’t have time. what a sad day – when you don’t even have time to make ice cream.)
