This time of year is weird for me. My mind wants cozy Italian Sausage Stew and easy pumpkin bread and spiced apple cake, but I walk outside and my body is like, “What are you trying to do to me, woman? It’s 85 degrees out here!”
I’m trying to get in the mood for apple picking and pumpkin farms and crunchy leaves, but I’m also sweaty. It’s VERY confusing.
The only solution is to drink lots of Apple Cider Floats. They’ve got all the fall flavors but also ICE CREAM. Problem solved.
