When I read in Samantha Irby’s book that she frigging loves fall, I felt like I was set free. She’s cool and she likes fall, so doesn’t that mean I’m safe from the PSL-loving, Ugg–wearing, Friends-marathon-watching, vocal-fry-having, white girls who gave loving fall a bad name?
It doesn’t, actually. I love fall and PSLs and Uggs and I have (and am proud of) crazy vocal fry, hailing from a bunch of inbred Pittsburgh Irish Germans.
So anyway, now’s the time when you can go out and get your pumpkin-spiced-flavored everything and I am psyched. And this year I’m taking it to THE NEXT LEVEL. I’m gonna make my own pumpkin pie spice. Yep! I haven’t tried to go “artisan” in the kitchen since that time I tried (and failed) to make homemade high-fructose corn syrup. Turns out you can’t do that, btw. You need a scientist. 😦
That’s right. You don’t even need pumpkin to make pumpkin-pie spice.
Just mix up those spices and blammo: PS for your L.
Bonus: You can use pumpkin-pie spice in your coffee! Or mix it in your pasta. Or sprinkle it on your roasted veggies. OR! Mix it in some pancake batter.
Mmmmmmmm. I love you, sweet sweet fall.
