I don’t know if it feels like it where you are - here in Portland, it was 84 yesterday, gonna be 85 today, so maybe not so much here - but it’s heading quickly towards fall. Monday is October, which brings with it such things as stupidly early Christmas advertising, all things Halloween, and that favorite thing of lots of people, pumpkin spice everything.

I am a very live and let live kind of person, especially about food. Like what you like! It doesn’t matter, as long as you enjoy it. Which is why I find the rage some people fly into over Pumpkin Spice Whatever to be quite baffling - so you don’t like pumpkin spice stuff. That’s fine too! You can just ignore it!

If you’re a pumpkin spice person, what’s your favorite example of it? I haven’t had one in a while, since there’s no Dunkin’ Donuts (or, I guess just Dunkin’, now) in Portland, but their pumpkin spice donuts are amazing. Pumpkin bread is great, as well.

I also just love, y’know, pumpkin pie. So I guess count me in on team Pumpkin Spice. Where do you fall on that spectrum?

Also, a few food questions:

- What’s your go-to snack?
- What’s your perfect comfort food?
- If you could only eat one thing forever, what would that one thing be?

Let’s talk food!
